Limited slip allows the rear wheels to slip some so it is easier to make turns, a locking unit locks both rear wheels so they turn together. Limited slip is the most widely used today as it functions automatically. Lockers are made in 2 styles, 1 uses a device that can lock and unlock the operation using a switch on the dash, the other is locked all the time. HTH

really only die hard off roaders would prefer locking , and they would already understand the ins & outs. For the regular drive back and forth driver the automatic limited slip is probably the way to go.
