Locker in a DD

I'm building my YJ to be mostly a DD with some light offroading. It will probably get driven 5-7K/yr. My original wants are detroit locker rear and trutrac front. My wife and kids will drive it some in town and I would like it to be driver friendly for them. I read about the selectables but those things are costly with the exception of the electric's (Auburn). Would the cheaper ones work ok or would you stay with my original plan? I'm installing a 6" lift and 36x15.5X15's. My longer term goal is also do a V8 swap in about a year. Any comments are appreciated.
