Default locking and posi axle questions

i was thinking of getting a locking rear axle so my first questions are which is the best which is the most realible(strong) and which is the most practical of locking axles ive seen many from electric to cable so which do u guys think is the best
second question is since the front axle is command track would it be bad to have a straight up posi axle in the front cause that would mean the one wheels aways locked on but would that really be that bad or would it prob just cost me a little gas if posi is a good way to go in the front which would be the best way of goin about it ive seen peope just weld them together or actually getting a posi axle which would be the best way of goin about it

first.... just FYI a posi is just a name.... its really a LSD or a limited slip.... (posi was coined like Klenex or Xerox by Eaton corp)....

To really answer to your question depends on what the truck will be doing all the time.... Personally I really like the e-locker setup and I have two AUburn E-lockers in my Hummer.... they are Limited slip when they aren't locked but then are a spool when locked...

Another good alternative would be a detroit in the rear e-lock or ARB (air locker) up front.... but if you didn't want a locker up front, the limited slip is the next best thing.... no matter what, if you want to wheel, you don't want open differentials....

Do you plan on driving this vehicle on the street?
