Detroit or Grizzly Lockers in both axles...yea or nay?

I'm getting my front and rear Dana 44 axles rebuilt and re-geared, and I'm considering putting either Detroit Lockers or Grizzly Lockers in both. Will my Wrangler handle OK on the street? Not concerned about the noise. More concerned about wet roads, erratic moves caused by the auto lock-up, etc.

I have the Detroit in my rear axle and lockrite in my front axle. Never any complaints from either and they do fine on the road. If you were in a snow/ice state you would probably hear otherwise.
