Now on the locker issue am I correct in saying that all the JKs have a version of electronic braking that when sensing a wheel is free spinning (thereby reducing torque on the stuck wheel) the computer will "quick break" to rebuild compression to help you get out? I know this is not nearly as good a lockers but it's still there correct? I'm asking because I have a JKU sport and thinking about adding manual disconnects but wasn't too worried about lockers. Figured the disconnects were more important for rocky areas where I'm wheeling.

Ox lockers are great. They are available in an electric version also. Each brand and type of locker offers different benifits and disadvantages. Consider your type of actual driving before you commit to any alternate type of traction aid. Full time and part time lockers, auto and manual lockers what ever your looking for, I would consider the use it will see. Most cases, a the factory lsd if equiped is great for your dailey driver. Lunch box drop in auto lockers are another cheap improvment, but can be tricky in the winter. It all depends were you do most of your adventures and driving, unless ya got cash to blow. Quick answer is yes Ox products are exceptional.

The basic understanding is here, but your terminology is off....lol. Nothing substitutes a locker or spool for traction, but the lsd diff with the brake assist performs better then an open diff. Jeep has various videos of this diff combination performing. Youtube use to have em. Google em.
