Locker Question

I was driving in the mountains last weekend and i came back with a locker question ....How fast with it locked is it safe to drive with....When im driving up to the mountains and back the normal speed with it snowing is about 20-25...would it be safe for my truck to be driving that fast with it locked? ive only heard and seen people wheeling with their gears locked when their going like 2 mph....

My detroit never unlocks. Lockers and light snow/ice are not a good combination. 4wd and open maybe LS is the best for ice/snow.

Heavy, deep *** snow off-road you need lockers.

i agree, my detroit in snow is horrible. never unlocks. if you were to have a selectable locker, that woukld only lock when you tell it too or a L/S, than you should be fine.
