^^^ very true, Just adding a locker to the front can take you to a whole different level of wheeling. If you plan to have a bit more fun and maybe run 35's you can do that with a locked30/open35 combo but you have best be responsible with the axles.
I loved having the rubi axles. The bolt right in and work great. If you can budget it I would go that route! You will need a pump for the lockers, but the trade off to just have everything set up so all you have to do is push a button is awesome. I had 35x12.5 under rubi axles and wheeled it hard without any issues. I put upgraded steering and a upgraded track bar and was set.
