ARB or Detroit lockers, I'm not a fan of a spooled rearend on DD's

Positraction is nice for a freeway flyer.

And good tires will make allot of difference as well.
How about some more info on what your driving?

Gotta love open differentials.
Can't go wrong with either ARB or Detroit lockers.
Cheap alternative would be going to a scrap yard and finding a rear end that came stock from the factory with a limited slip diff. You can usually get a 10.25 for between $150-300 depending on condition. This will also save you having a locker installed.

Snow tires, a locker, and some weight in the bed.

Problem solved.
