    a locker will make both wheels spin @ the same time no mater what
    so if its not locked the wheel that is in less of a bind will spin

    Assuming open diffs front and rear, you will get at least one front and one rear spinning. Even with an open diff it's possible to get 3 or 4 spinning. The only way to guarantee 3 or 4 spinning is to lock/spool the diffs.

    i'm gving the truck till the end of october. if its still in the front yard for sale by then i think i'm just going to do the old lincoln locker for the rear and weld the axle solid. then it hits the mud.
