FRONT/REAR LOCKERS???

have an 02' f250. apparently i have open diff's. i would like to know what is my best option for a locker or limited slip without spending a fortune, but want something reliable. we have mud in the summer, and snow/ice in the winter with a bad driveway. my last 02' had the factory limi. slip and it seemed to do fine. do i need to find one in a junk yard out of a wreck or by new???

A lock rite is the best bang for the buck IMO.

I think its a 10.25 but I dunno I seen em on ebay a little while ago. Maybe you can find them there. But there are nice. I miss my old truck because of the locker I had. It would tear through anything.

our axles are 10.5...10.25 are F150's, look on the rear axle tag it will show what it is..

are you sure there open diffs? 10000% ?
