    HP D44 questions

    I found a HP D44 I want, only problem is it has an empty diff. Gears aren't an issue because I planned on regearing anyway. I am a little curious on the carrier though. ARB lockers do not need a carrier do they? I doubt I will be able to budget that, so I was thinking about a Detroit or Aussie or something similar. These still need a carrier from an open diff, correct?
    The axle has locking hubs, which I have never dealt with other then locking them in on stock trucks. If I get a locker like a Detroit, it would basically be like an open diff while the hubs are unlocked, then when I lock the hubs it would be fully locked?

    I don't want a full time locker because I do a lot of highway driving, but I don't want to lose my locker when I go D44. If I could just put a Detroit in it and still unlock it, that would be great.

    ARB's and Detroit lockers (for the D44) both replace the open carrier. You will need an open carrier for the Aussie locker.

    I would not say the front axle behaves like an open diff when the hubs are unlocked. It behaves like no diff.
