I have a detroit in the rear, and a welded setup up front (I have locking hubs)

I'm replacing the welded setup with another detroit.

not that this has any info for you. My detroit unlocks around most corners, but sometimes it sounds as if I just exploded my diff.

I've been scared a few times...

And if you are scared of a weld comming apart, just have killerB do it.. I have once piece of metel.. literally, I think he used about 30 pounds of rod. If that breaks, it would be awesome. becuase then I would make fun of him

I imagine the selectable locker would be best. Same on road open diff characteristics, and ability to full lock when you want it for the extra traction. Something like ARB with an on/off. Expensive, but it seems like the one that does what you want to do the best. Maybe you can order one without the pump and just mount a small 5 gallon air tank under the bed and just remember to keep it filled, doesn't sound like your going to go back and forth between open/locked alot. Just throwing an idea out.

I'm welding my front spiders, but like CC, I have manual hubs. I'm leaving the rear ones open for now. Tires are expensive enough.

I run a lunchbox in the front (Aussie) it's nice to be able to take the front axle out of gear and turn super tight on the trail.

I have a Detroit in the Ram, but I would recommend a LSD for your purposes.
