Yeah, it depends on whether you are gonna be strictly off road or not.

But if you are interested in some suggestions, check out Detroit Lockers.

First, welcome to this great site.

Second, Depends what you plan to go through. cable lockers can get stuck with colder weather..ice. Air or electric lockers are both great ways to go. If this is not your primary rig then lockrights or other similar style lockers work great in the rear. Front lockers should be manually controlled so you break less axles. I like electric lockers myself.

If you can do it swap in a 360. Or maybe a chevy drive line based on your sig.

Thats my 2 cents.
