Locker advise please

Im wanting to get lockers on my Tj but there are so mant types to choose from. I eventually will upgrade axels but dont have the money right now. I currently have D30 in front and D35 rear. Im running 4" lift on 35" tires any suggestions on a cost effective solution for locking would be nice. Thanks

If you lock a D35 (especially running 35's) you are going to be upgrading your axle real soon, or buying lots of shafts.

If you plan on upgrading axles then why not wait until then to get a locker? they make them for different axles so you'll have to switch them later if you change axles..

If it was me I would put a super 35 kit (which comes with a locker) in the rear or change it out for a 8.8.
Then get a locker and upgraded axle shafts for the front when you have the funds.

Aussie locker up front for the D30 is inexpensive and only takes about 90 minutes to install.

Be advised if you are still running stock gears: if you add a locker now and then regear later, you might not be able to continue to use that locker if you need to buy a new carrier with the new ring gear. The only thing more expensive than buying a locker for your axle is having to buy another locker for that same axle later on.

FYI
