Front locker only...
Jerry is dead on - good answer.
The (front) Lockright is what I run and has been the best investment.
With the front locker, I ran an open D35c for 6 rides with 33s and eventually 35s - but I babied it 'cause I knew if I pushed it, it would bite me. This combination took me almost everywhere I wanted to go.
I now have a Rubicon D44 rear, so I'm really looking forward to the next ride when I can push hard and try more challenges.
Start with the front locker and see how far it takes you - just don't bounce or thrash on the rear too much - even open, if you catch it wrong, you'll snap the one drive axle.
