For what it's worth, I'd just carry tools to remove the slugs if you need too. You have only need to unlock you hubs a couple times. Fix your driveshaft issue and save your money! Haha

Bring me your parts, I'll make them fit each other.

I bought the new Yukon lockouts from Dale. I like being able to disconnect the front. However, I don't know how much you drive it on the street so it may not be as big of a deal.

Only "street" its seen so far is around Drummond. And couple hundred yards up/down road in front of my house.

However it will be plated and insured and driven around moab for a week and possibly a little in Colorado.

Then I would do the lockouts. I find that I have some vibration in my front driveshaft that is only going to make things worse when spinning down the road at 50.mph.

x2 drive flanges ftw!

no issues with mine at snofari and I think we saw probably anywhere from 4-8 miles on the way out and back. the truck would actually go down the road pretty good if I had more psi in the tires.

I'd prefer the strength over the rare times you actually want to drive long distances on pavement. jmo

I wouldn't sell the flanges. But rather install the lockouts for the times I know I'll be running 2wd for extended times.

good call. then carry the flanges for spares during those times and you're good to go

unless you have the style where you can pull the slugs and re-install the caps. mine don't unfortunately.

My slugs have that ability.

When the Yukon lockouts fail, they lock when failed vs unlock like other lockouts.
