I think you'd have a lot harder time turning, lol, but I don't see why you couldn't, you'd just have to put it in, or just put a locker in.

I wouldnt do it. Just leave it open diff and put a locker in the rear. Youd be better off. If you put lsd up front you would be replacing it every 6 months if it doesnt destroy the rest of the axles components first.

If the locker is good, nothing to worry about. either one seems like it'll cause wheel hop to me. Probably scrubbing too, as your tires won't be able to turn at different speeds anymore.

Have a friend that put a locker up front on 39.5" irok's. Sees offroad alot. But drivig it on the road melted the bearings to the axle shafts. His front diff literally ate itself. I WOULD NOT touch the front diff unless its 90/10 offroad use. Leave it open. It will not let the wheels give enough for normal everyday driving.

Then your front diff must have a locker. Lsd would make it worse. Its supposed to be open. Which wouldnt have that problem.
