Front axle locker drivability with only one hub...

I see that jeep people do that for better turning radius with no issues, but how will be on our trucks? I don't use my truck for DD and it never snows here. So two wheel drive is all I need for driving around. I do like to go to sand or trails and locker would be nice, but in case if I need to turn sharp or if I'm in not too crazy situation, will it be driving ok with 3 wheel drive? <br />
Selectable lockers are not in my budget, so only choice is lock-rite or equal, but if it totally suck driving on trails with front fully locked or with just one hub, then trac-lok posi or equal would be my only options.

I spent a long time wondering the same question. I decided that it was not worth it. I ended up getting a Dana Power-lok. I arranged the clutches to be very aggressive, they grab like crazy. I really like the set up, the truck goes most anywhere I care to point it.
