Re: Winter tires - locker - LSD what works?
What jage said, plus I'm assuming you have factory rear limited slip, and unless you are doing some serious off-roading and get into some more difficult 4X4 trails, your limited slip should suffice, especially in snow, there are several threads on the subject of limited slip, Detroit lockers and trutrac from Eaton, which are a very nice more aggressive gear driven limited slip. I lived in Tahoe for a few years as well, during El Niño 97-98, had a subaru that plowed through anything, or so I thought, just got a new forester and swapped in some blizzaks, now I can plow through anything while still retaining control, which is nice. Play around with tossing your rig in an empty parking lot to see capabilities of your 4X4 and those blizzaks. Have fun! By the way, I'm running Toyo mud terrains, mud terrains are crap in the snow, thinking of swapping over to Goodyear duratracs next set, they have the mountain peak rating for snow.
