DirtyRob I would get the locker for the front, and get the 8.8 with limited slip. You would be amazed how much better it would wheel.
I always weld my rear axles, but I don't drive on the road much.
The Dana 35 is a weak axle, I haven't broke one myself, but I have seen a few get destroyed. They cannot take a lot of abuse.

TJ-chopper If you can control your right foot on that little peddle you won't have much problem

Abomination93 Weak axle shafts. You can get upgraded axle shafts but they are not cheap. A lot of people upgrade to the Ford 8.8 out of an explorer because its a stronger axle and you get disk brakes at the same time.
