i didnt really want a locked front end because i do mostly street driving. i was hoping if i went the locked route i could go variable rate or something that could be turned on and off on demand.

anybody know of anywhere to get a limited slip or locker for the front?

The front axle is a Dana 35 i believe..

Dont know where to get a limited slip, they do have what your talking about, just hard to find.

The only person i know of with a locked front new ranger is Adrian (supersonicfx4) might wanna talk to him.

I dont beieve they make a ected (selectable) locker for the front axle.

Reason i believe: if your gonna lock the front, go big or go home. So the probably wont sell the selectabe ones.

get ready to pay out the yin yang...it's a crappy deal, but anytime you work on the front diff you're gonna pay heavily...mostly because nobody really makes parts on a major scale for the front...case in point, ring and pinion gears...if you find anything let us know though...
