So I have had the Lockright in the front for about a year now. Going for the dune trip I had some trepidation as to whether it would unlock on the sand. I had experienced no issues at Baboons last year but that was on rock.

I am pleased to announce I saw no impact on steering from the locker. To the point where I did a test just to make sure it was still there :lol: Any binding is due to the centre diff and there is not even a clicking sound when cornering.

I can honestly say that when I am driving I hardly feel its there, difficult to compare but steering feedback is maybe only slightly heavier than normal in 4x4. It felt like it was "tramlining' at medium speed and that went away at high speed.
