Hi Mort
Thanks for the offer.
I have a friend looking into it for me, a lot of "bush mechanics" (in the true sense) out this way, They have no choice given where they live..
Regards
Bony

Hi Bony
here is a video of a number of different lockers that may answer some or all of your questions and in the end it is your choice as to what you feel comfortable with.

Its a you tube and there are other clips to watch as well

Thank You People
Looks like I will go ahead with all upgrades at January next year, sooner if I could source a mechanic where I can be involved. I like to learn...
Have options open for the 19.5inch rims, but still looking...

I have an ARB locker. It is a total PITA in anything except a straight line.
Rephrase; once engaged you cant do anything but drive in a straight line. I has gotten me out of trouble a couple of times but that's all it's good for.

I am headed to the TruTrac on the front, so I may have something to report... But then again I am not sure what I would say other than it goes through some riverbed or another?

I am now back to thinking about 19.5 with the DH05 or 305/70R19.5 Michelin XDE on rears.
Maybe a highway tyres on the snout.
Then the XZL 255/100 16 are 923mm and the DH05 are 927mm in diameter.

I could either put the XZL on the snout for dirt work, or carry them as spares.
And they fit on the old the 16" split rims.

Why not just run the DH05 all round?

I am not sure...
If I could find another pair of XZL 255/100 16, then I would get them, and maybe, or maybe not... some road 19.5".

Some earlier post mentioned smoother tyres on the front and the DH05 on the rear or the (semi) off-road michelins.
So maybe the same front and rear make more sense???

Are the DH05 the ones to get, or the Michelin XDLs???

I’m on my second set of DH05 and will get them again. For what I do they are excellent.
