Locker Question?

I am putting ARB's in my 90 in a few weeks. The Question is if you have lockers do you still use the Diff locks if you engage them? Back only- front & back - When?

In my experience, I engage my CDL when I am offroad, leave the ARBs unlocked until you cannot move forward, then engage them, then once you clear the obstacle, disengage them. You will be surprised how little you actually use them.

When your offroad always lock the CDL. In the unlocked state you have a better chance of breaking the t-case. Locked up it is extremely stout.

As far as lockers, if you have stock axles, never turn them on. If you have all maxi stuff, turn them on as little as humanly possible. If you have toy stuff, turn them on whenever you want.
