A lot of company offer lockers and limited slip devices that you can install in the front and or rear ends and activate from the cab. The most common ones for our trucks are ARB and Detroit but there are lots of others.

actually no. locker and Limited slip are NOT the same. limited slip and positraction ARE the same. a limited slip or posi is- one wheel spins, the other starts to help(like a clutch engaging, but not fully). a locker- one wheel starts to slip, and both wheels lock and turn at the same rate. do a u-turn in a parking lot (on the accelerator) and the difference is way obvious. the locker will chirp the inside wheel and a limited slip will not. HTH.

edit: Ryan's ARB suggestion is great for a front end and a daily driven rear end(very expensive, but best traction aid). the Detroit(or any automatic locker), I personally, recommend for a rear only. it makes the turning radius much worse in a front end when 4x4 is engaged(medium cost). limited slip (usually best price)works on both front and rear, but is not as good for traction aid in dirt, mud and snow. (better on ice). these are my personal opinions as an avid, experienced off road driver.
