locker or posi?

In the near future ill be ordering a ford 8.8 from eastcoastgearsupply. I am wondering what i should get inside of it the rebuilt limeted slip or an auto locker? Money is def part of the equation. My jeep is my dd and only source of transpertation. I do wheel a descent amount but not rock crawl mostly trail mud and snow.

If you can keep all four tires on the ground when offroading, a limited slip differential ('Posi') can help. But once you are on terrain that is uneven enough so your tires start lifting up off the ground, only a locker will help.
When you have a choice, buy American.
