If it does then you could probably still ride it okay in 2 wheel drive. But the steering would be very very hard. Now if it does not have a 4x4 unlocker and you put in a spool. Turning would be almost impossible on hard pack. The spool is really only good in sloppy mud.
Its a All time 4 no in and out, but i think i will need one in the front with 29.5s in the front and I can get one for $20 and don't have the money right now to buy a DGL, so i don't know what i am goin to do
When the wheels are staright on both they function the same. The DGL will allow the outside wheel to turn faster than the inside wheel when turning. Allowing you to exert less effort to steer.
If you want a 100% pure mudder then have at it. But if you ride trails to get to those mud pits I am not sure you will be happy with the extra effort to turn. Plus your turning radius will probably tiriple, making tight trails a pain.
No Phil I didn't like the spool locker. I had a DGL in my little 400 Kodiak and loved it. I just couldn't afford the DGL for the Rincon at the time so I had to settle for the spool; really really really hard to steer and that was just trying to steer little 26" tires. My $0.02
