Just want to mention that all wranglers when engaged in 4WD has a "difflock" between the rear axel and the front axel. That is why we should not drive in 4WD on asphalt.
Vehicles with permanent 4WD sometimes lacks the possibility to lock the middle "difflock" so then the Wrangler in 4WD is better that gets a stiff connection in 4WD to the rear and front axle.
So for instance in a landrover that has permanent 4wd (do not have 2WD) can drive it whit oppen middle diff on asphalt and lock it in terrain if neaded. Wranglers are always locked in 4WD.
So Landrovers for instance do not have front or rear lockers but some have tractioncontrol like BLD.
Hope You understood me, bad english

I have a Suzuki Jimny and it has oppen diff and lacks traction control like BLD that Wrangler JK has. I am waiting for my sahara 2012 with BLD
A suzuki Jimny is very similar with the wrangler Tj that also lacks tractioncontrol
I found this movie that shows how much better it goes If You but air lockers to a jimny.
Difficult to find good demonstration videos with the Wrangler JK.

Here the say that lockers are not only for rock climbing it is also for touring.
I think with BLD that Wrangler has is great but needs more momentum and speed and wheelspin and that could damage the vehicle and track. I would like to get lockers, but Rubicon is not for sale in Sweden and ARB air lockers are very expensive here, about 6000 dollars front and rear and with work.

In the real world, there aren't all that many opportunities to lock your diffs.
But when you need it, when push comes to shove, there's no better traction-aiding device. When BLD and LSD don't get you up the hill, you get out and winch or you lock your diffs.

My Jeep's got lockers? Sweeeet!
And it wasn't even listed on the window sticker. Those modest Chrysler guys.

However, scroll down to page 25 for the chart of standard/optional equipment, lockers are only listed for the Rubicon.

Here is a Wrangler LJ and a Wrangler TJ with open diff and lacks BLD. The JK has BLD and reaches the topp.
See this movie here, about 7mb, takes some time to download it. I found it on a other forum, his name is DeepSky and You can search after the thread.

The lockers are auto, they spin then lock in air. We've done an articulation in it, and its an amazing system. For reference, we have an 09' Sahara Unlimited, stock, point blank.
