Locker question

Was wondering if anyone has any experience on running a non-selec locker in the front for a daily driver on snow/ice. I am going to use the TJ to drive daily and hit trails on the weekend. I am just not sure if putting a locker in the front would be a good idea with the amount of snow and ice we get up here in Alaska. I had a friend with a lock-rite in his XJ and he said he hated it on the ice.

Let me know if you have any exp with this and which locker you like

I am currently running

HP dana 30 front 4.56gear open
Ford 8.8 rear 4.56 with factory limited slip
36x12.5 TSL Radials

A front automatic locker is unnoticeable in 2wd but the second you shift into 4x4, it will cause steering problems (understeer) on slick streets.
When you have a choice, buy American.
