As you normally would do. Don't know if I didn't express myself correctly on how the lockright works. But it locks when torque is applied, either forward or in reverse. Meaning roundabouts needs to be with clutch disengaged/down.

ARB lockers get my vote. Lockrights are only really only for off road use.

Do you rearly think it's necessary to fit an ARB to get up and down a country lane?
Well your wallet will certainly be lighter ;)

i think a locker is a bit much for my needs just now. I might go for a small winch due to the amount of times ive had to be pulled or pull people out of ditches in that area in the past single track roads and tourists going to fast don't mix

Assuming people with ordinary cars want to be able to visit your house, I'd suggest driveway maintenance is more of a priority than pimping up your Jimny. A standard Jimny will easily go places 90% of vehicles can't.
Most of the time a tow rope is much more useful than a winch. Fit a tow bar if you don't already have one and genuinely feel you will be doing a lot of recoveries.

Best to get a ball & pin hitch for the tow bar, its safer for recovery as the rope
or recovery strap cannot slip off. ;)

I can think of a few hundred mods I'd do before that ;)

I use it every day for trailer work! Probably the best mod I've done. All depends how you use your car though.

sorry but thats a load of rubbish
lockrights work by being locked unless it senses a difference in rotational speed between the two halfshafts (ie going round a corner) when it unlocks with a click (or a very loud clunk if not set up correctly lol)
you don't need to do anything special with the clutch for roundabouts or corners

however on show or ice you can become a drifting god (as Hammond would say)
