Lockers - Front & Rear - What's good?

I'm wanting to put real lockers in the front and rear axles. Which ones are good? Which ones should I stay away from? I have 37" Tires right now, but may lift the truck more in the future for some 40's. Not sure if that makes a difference or not, but i'll be wanting to do a gear swap when I put the lockers in. I have 3.73 right now, should I go with 4.10 or 4.56?

TIA!

As far as lockers, I would go with a Detroit or ARB. Mostly depending on your usage. ARB's are VERY nice in the front and can be handy in the rear.

usage is generally for muddy situations. I was noticing the one wheel peel this weekend. i'll be doing gears fairly soon so i might as well throw some lockers in there too. On the other hand.... it doesn't see mud often. Just when i'm feeling froggy.

How much are ARB's? What are the specifics i'm looking for in shopping? Pretty sure the rear is a Dana 60, which spline? What's the front? Spline?

Can I put detroits front & rear?

ARBs are awesome and then you will also have air to run whatever else you want

I plan on putting train horns on it pretty soon and getting a pump & tank big enough i can air up quad tires and such while we're out riding for the week or weekend. Would that type of air system work?

Yes, my cousin has them on the fronts of his jeep and he has a air hose running from it with a quick connect

your rear is a ford 10.5 or 10.25 which uses the same locker.. your front is either a dana 50 or dana 60

ARB's are about 900 just for the locker detroits are around 750ish and does not require the air compressor... but you def want a selectable locker for the front which is the reason i suggest the ARB
