My Jeep got stuck

I got stuck twice today in sand. One wheel on each side would just spin and dig big holes. My brother had to pull me out with his rubicon. I definitely need lockers. Or at least one in the front. Or would the back be better? I just don't know? Can't afford both.

Locking the rear first is best but only if your rear axle is the stronger version of the two possible rear axles your Wrangler came with. If it's not, then the front axle is the one to lock. Do you know if your rear axle is the standard Dana 35c that is unsuitable for a locker or the stronger Dana 44 that is?

were you aired down? common to get stuck in sand without airing down. You need as wide of a foot print as possible, to increase your float.

I was trying to pull out a trail blazer and I just dug big holes. Only moved him about a foot.
