Front Locker cons?

I'm regearing to 4.30s and a grizzly locker in rear. Should I go ahead and put one in front or not? What are the cons?

Worst part about a locker in the front, is if you loose all traction in the rear and all your weight is in the front. Say one wheel has some real nice traction but the other doesn't. Then all the power of your truck is now going through the one front wheel. Then it goes boom.
