3. I've had some tell me the Triton is nothing but a tradies ute and the drive system isn't proper 4WD so i'll always have problems even with an air locka.
1. It can't be random that each time its my drivers side rear wheel thats been the problem, can it?
2. Will a rear locka fix my problem?

I would get some additional traction boards- I like maxtrax if your going solo and you should be set.
if more offroading without trailer, for pure traction the front wins out, but is not as practical option in your case, although everybit helps when your stuck.
if you can only afford one- for your use as you explained it is the rear.

I was going to get a rear locker, having heard thats where the weight is and the rear "drive parts" tend to be stronger than the parts on the front wheels. yet, a few ppl just now have said to get front locker.
whats the difference, whats the best to do, front or rear? Probably a can of worms but i'd listen to pros and cons to help make up my mind.
