I agree with monkeyevil's suggestion.....

http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showt...ighlight=ected

doesnt look like a very robust design.

selectable=arb but not in a 9"
locker=detroit

these are proven and work, I personally have never had an issue with the detroit in the front, I literally dont even know its there, it feels like an open diff except the tires are always turning.....

Ok, I ordered an eaton e-locker.

On tuesday, I emailed the ECTED guys, as well as left a voice message. I never heard back from them, so fukc them.

If their customer service isn't there BEFORE THE SALE, I'm sure they won't be there after it.

when there isnt any power to it it IS open, and when it isnt it helps pull you around the turn provided your ackerman angles are good....

spool rear detroit front if something isnt spinning you know you have serious problems

So you're telling me if I put a detroit in the front (which costs around 300 less then an e-locker) that I will be able to turn in 4wd?

I don't understand how that works.

Theres a lot of places that I want to drive in 4wd, but be able to turn, and when the locker is engaged, I won't be able to turn.

With the e-locker, I can engage my front axle, and still have the open carrier, so I have some 4wd, but I can still turn.

It is easier to turn if you can unlock the rear. At least it makes sense to me to run a selectable in the rear and a locker in the front. With a locker in the rear it will push you strait. While the front locker will pull the front where you point it.

Plus any road time it will drive like a stocker.

Unless you plan on driving it on the freeway, in the winter, on black ice, I see no need for a selectable locker in the front. Get you $$ back and buy a Detroit.

there is still some, your front tires are locked together and they dont have power so they would be scrubbing, unless you make your turns in FWD, but then the rear would scrub and make it seem like you have a longer wheelbase and reducing your turning radius again.....

BUT we are on dirt with too many variables and the differences we are trying to justify are MAYBE 1' of turning radius.... does it matter? no

Absolutely! I have no problems turning in 4wd.

A Detroit isn't always engaged. It's designed to unlock (like at slow speeds, while turning). Even locked it still turns fairly easy.
