Difference between 4-lo, and 1st gear 4 hi

I have a 2006 Rubicon and I am somewhat confused as to when to do what. It has 4 Hi and 4 Lo.

Not sure of the difference between 4 lo and 1st gear in 4 Hi. Is one more powerful than the other? Also, how do I know when I should lock the front axles? Both Axles?

only kick in the rear axle locker when you need it. and only use the front locker when you need it and are going straight.
