Need advice A.S.A.P.

I am going to pull the trigger,
I have 2000 sport 5 speed. I am having an 8.8 built with ARB, and 4.56 gears. My dilemma is in the front D-30. I am up in the air on a tru-trac or ARB. I am new to wheeling jeeps, and don't know how aggressive I will get on trails as my experience grows. Will the tru-trac be a good selection, I will run 33's with disconnects., or should I just go all out with the ARB.
I like the idea of LSD in the front for snow, realizing wouldn't lock ARB in the front for snow driving, But really not a lot of snow driving, more trail.

Do I really need an ARB in front??? dunno!!

I cant say anything for LSD in the front but I have ARBs in the front and rear. I am a selectable locker man all the way. I love them!!! I run 4.56 with 35in tires. It does fine for me. I would say ARB all the way around.

I'd go for it if I had the cash. Locker up front is awesome on the trails.
