Just put the locker in. You'll need gears depending on your tire size, and if you are going pretty big and you think you'll do some challenging stuff, go with alloy shafts, maybe a truss as well.
I was advised that you should either go with a lunchbox locker in the front (like what you suggested), or a selectable. That way you can still drive your Jeep on the street. A locker in the front will be able to help pull you over rocks as well.

I'm going to reccomend a ford 8.8 instead of the D44, stronger axle, disk brakes, tons of available parts for it.

I think I read in JP magazine that the Dana 44 was stronger than an 8.8. I really doubt it. My Mustang would yank the tires in the air and run 10's in the 1/4 mile with a 31 spline, otherwise stock 8.8.

The Powertrax no slip d30 Only engages when put in 4X4
D44 Detroit locker is locked
Makes this jeep great on trail but crap for D/D
I need to be able to use 4X4 on the street and get great trail handling
What do i need to know to arb the front and back
I need to get on this ASAP

Yes, put a selectable locker (ARB, Ox, etc.) in the rear and front so that you'll be able to disengage both axles and drive on the street, and if you want to drive in 4x4 you should still be able to without locking them. I think that answers your question.
I was advised to mix it up, have an air locker in one axle and an electric in the other. That way if one fails on the trail, you still have the other. If you had both air lockers and say you crack a line, both lockers would fail (I believe).

power trax the front. Selectable the rear if possible. If you want more traction powertrax no slip the rear also. I have seen people do this on a dd no problems the No-slip is a very well behaved locker.
