First, I like automatic lockers. I had automatic lockers in my previous TJ... a Detroit Locker in the rear and a Powertrax No-Slip locker in the front.
That said, I wouldn't install a Lockrite (or Aussie or EZ-Locker) into the rear of a Jeep due to its poor traits when in the rear axle and I especially wouldn't install a Lockrite into a Jeep I was planning on driving on icy or snow-covered trails unless the snow was deep. Automatic lockers are known as "low-side finders" on slippery off-camber trails due to their propensity to slide sideways toward the low side.
They'd be ok in deep snow but I wouldn't want to drive them on icy or slick streets/trails.
