my friend does 4wd burnouts in his ram 2500 from time to time, all he does is put it in 4wd then powerbreak till his turbo kicks in and it breaks all the tires loose. but everything on his truck is heavy duty so he dont break anything and its heavily modded. i know driving with a lSD on pavement dont mess anything up (atleast with newer setups) i may have miss understood the question though. in my 4wd i can only spin all 4 tires on wet grass lol

Plenty of people run lockers or limited slip in the front, selectable locker being the better choice since you can turn it off. You don't want the limited slip to grab in the corners don't gas on it when going around corners. You shouldn't have any binding issues on pavement as long as your hubs are unlocked anyways.

well when ever its in 4 wheel drive i have the hubs locked i don't see the point in driving in 4 wheel without the hubs locked I might get a rear locker the air lockers are expensive so i may go with a E locker or something the front I will have to get an air locker for sure

eaton e lockers are pricey... new. i haven't found any used yet. but the more I read, a detroit truetrac or e-locker seems absolutely fantastic.

Well driving on the pavement in 4 wheel drive is going to make it bind like that anyways.
