You are going with auto lockers front and back? Why not at least one selectable? Personally I am going to either do Eaton E Locker front and back or Detroit Trutrac front and E Locker rear.
On another note, I would forgo the axle shafts for now. If you don't rock crawl or anything then they are over kill. For that kind of cheese you can get a Rubicon front 44 with OEM locker or a front PR44.

Axle shaft kits sound a little "hardcore" for what I think you'll be doing. And I can't open the links for some reason, but if those are auto lockers I'd say definitely not. If you're going lockers on a vehicle that sees street driving, I would want selectable.
Personally, I'd step back for a minute and ask if you really need stuff that you really don't understand. Have you taken your jeep offroad yet? They're very capable right out of the gate.
You're looking at stuff that starts to march down the road of the "hardcore" offroader. And maybe that's where you're going, but I'm just saying you should probably find out your Jeep's limits and your interest level before spending thousands and thousands of dollars.

Lol Yes I do take my jeep off road most weekends. But have never had lockers on any thing I have drove. I will be moving back to FL in 3 years so dont want to over build it. And as most know FL is sand and mud I drive my jeep everyday so thats why I had the detroit lockers I thought the ones I had listed I could turn on anf off.
The Detroit Lockers are not selectable/switchable. They work automatically with no input from the driver and disburse power to both wheels as needed. Ok for a trail only rig or a DD rig that never sees snow/ice, unless the driver knows how to drive with auto lockers. The Eaton E Locker is electronically selectable and works much like the OEM Rubicon lockers, although the D44 E Locker is weaker than the D30 E Locker as the D44 uses a 2 pin design and the D30 a 4 pin design. The Trutrac is a limited slip and doesn’t lock both wheels, instead it moves power to the wheel with more traction, making it good for snow/ice but not ideal for rock crawling as it doesn’t work when hanging tires.
As for axle shafts, are you worried about them for some reason? You don’t need new shafts if you only do mild wheeling especially a 2 door with little to no extra weight in the form of armor. The unlimited with armor and D30 27 spline shafts are little more prone to failure but even then not a huge concern if you’re not getting into extremely precarious, off camber situations like in a rock garden. Keep in mind that upgrading the D30 shafts could move the weak point to your R&P, and I’d much rather have an axle shaft break than my ring and pinion.
For your set up, IMO, you can go with 4.88 or 5.13 gears, diff cover of your choice, Poly Performance inner c-gussets, Nitro sleeves. As mentioned before you can put an ARB out back and on board air if you got this money burning a hole in your pocket, it’ll be a more useful setup and maybe add the Detroit Trutrac up front.
