front is a Dana 60 and your rear is a 10.25 i do believe and i would go with an ARB air locker cause you can disengage them or go with some good ol' Detroits

i have detroit lockers front and back they work awesome but i cant disengage them...its really hard on tires and turning is kind of tricky.. i'd go with ARB air lockers or electric..

ya selectable is definantly the smarter but more expensive way to go. Just be sure the front is either selectable or an open diff. Lockers or limited slips up front can make for some really hairy winter driving because the front end wants to "push" all the time and its super hard to steer.

the reason i am asking is cause i got the itch to do sum pulling two nights ago when we had tug of wars in the field. to my surprise i walked a 95 f150, a 96 cummins, 03 cummins, 02 d-max, and an 05 f250 6.0. I was honestly shocked i never thought id do that good.

I am researching lockers aswell for my '95, for a little bit xtra cash I beleive you can get an ARB with a compressor you can use in a pinch for other things.
