The 97 should be sterling 10.25 axle and the 03 should be sterling 10.50 and dana 50 front axle. As for what gears you have there should be a tag on the front or rear end under a cover bolt or axle code on the door, that is unless someone has changed the gearing. As for a locker in the front end it will make it steer a whole lot different especially with the amount of weight over the front axle on diesel trucks. dr8082 I take it you want the locker to run in the sand on the outer banks, just keep in mind that running in soft sand with a front locker will be hard on your locking hubs and if you still have the stock ones I wouldn't trust them to be up to the task.

1deiselman, the tag on my rear hogs head reads: 3v423c and L730152H12.
If I understand right the fx4 in the 03 is a limited slip. As to the locker in the front, would it still be hard on steering and hubs with the front hubs unlocked during road driving? I assume u mean while the front is in use while off road steering would be hard.

Thanks for your time.
