Saves a bit of gas ...you have to get out to use

solid axle with electric lock.
You dont have to get out

2 half shaft axles.
Much better ride...with the actuator in the diff, it saves on gas

BTW, I dont think there is an electric lock on solid axles....they are locked in all the time....I could be wrong
