Locker questions

Can someone explain locker price and instal? Electric vs. air. Installing a locker vs buy a new axel with a locker already. And what needs to be done to lock just one axel, and which one is better, front or rear. I drive a 98 tj 4.0 and my next project is gonna be a locker, I just have no idea where to start

What kind of driving and wheeling do you do most. Lunchboxes are the cheapest and a detroit is bomb proof but A selectable in a shorty is gonna be best if you do a lot of street and for sure if you drive in snow. Air requires a on board pump to work. That is a good thing if you want to air up your tires too but it adds extra cost. Electric is maybe the cheapest install but the ARB is generally accepted as being the strongest of the selectable's. Axles are really going to depend on tire choice and how hard you wheel it and where. Rocks,mud,trails all have different requirements. I am guessing that you have a 30/35 combo in there now. We need more info and then your going to have to sit down ad go thru about 10 different opinions on what is best. Good luck.
