what concerns me is the front locker detroit ez-locker. On pavement, with the hubs locked and in 2WD, the front shimmies and dances with lots of clicks at about 3-20mph going straight, haven't gotten faster, it gets worse, but stops clicking on a turn. Off road I don't notice anything, until of course the 4WD is engaged. Can I drive this thing with hubs engaged 2WD for like a mile trail to pavement to trail with all the clicks or is something going to become destroyed? Is the noise comming partly from the axles?
All is normal then. Even driving straight, the slight variations in left and right tire rotations is enough to ratchet and catch it. Not a problem, until i get on ice, right? I will just have to find out what happens. Hey, if it lands in a ditch, two lockers and mud tires should pull me out to try again.

different pressures in the tires could cause the locker to engage/dis-engage abnormally too, right?
I lifted each A-arm to spin one wheel at a time. With both hubs engaged and one wheel on the ground, the lifted wheel spins with the ratchet sound. If I spin it, stop it, respin it, it catches and does the quick lock/unlock. When in 4WD and back tires on the ground too, but other wheel hub free, the rotating front wheel is wont spin, so the locker works. Hope you could follow that? I guess I'll just keep it off road.
Thanks, I tried that. Looks good. I Hi-Lift jacked the front bumper and spun one side and the other axle spun. I say axle because the locker couldn't spin the 33" tire and only ratcheted.
