    I found a brand new KM2 that's the right size and for a good price, but mixing these tires doesn't sound like a good idea at all.

    Still looking.

    Depends on the vehicle. On a TJ the front diff is always spinning, unless you've installed manual hubs.

    Yes if it's an open diff or selectable locker. If its an limited slip or auto locker its going to wear the clutch packs out faster and wear on the auto lockers dog teeth.

    HOPEFULLY if you have a full time locker, like I do, you have locking hubs.

    I know Jeff has ARB locker in the front end so no issue there
