ccrane2299 I have a lockright in the front. ~$250 or so. I never know its there until I engage 4WD.
In the rear, The Aussie/Lock right type lockers are horrible. I took a chance and put a powertrax no slip in the rear of my new jeep and it behaves pretty well. That being said, selectable is the way to go.

Joe Dirt I have a Detroit in the rear. You get some rear stear that you have to get used to. If you can't live with that, you should get a selectible one.

4Jeepn As stated for the front get a selectable one. The rear does not matter as much. Detroit's will let you know they are their in the back axle. I had f/r ARB's enjoyed the best. If you want to save a bit on the rear get a lock right.. If you have a rear dana 35 upgrade shafts at the same time.

Sb5551 I have a detroit locker in the rear and I love it. The handling takes about a week to get used to. It can be annoying sometimes, cause you will get banging every 50 miles or so. It sounds like something broke but its normal. Torque steer (I think thats what its considered) is also a lot more noticable in the rear.

I never noticed a differance in the snow or rain.

snwchris I would say ARB, OX or Eaton E-Locker, since they are selectable.
Lockers like the Detroit Locker can makes things interesting on snow or ice covered roads, vehicle handles differently.

rketr I've used ARB, Ox, and Detroit all with zero problems. My first setup had ARB in both front and rear. My new setup is Ox in front and Detroit in rear. (only reason for change is just to try something new)

Biggest thing that you'll want is to be certain you have a selectable locker in the front (like the ARB you listed). Rear can be selectable too if you do a lot of on-road driving (just to eliminate the rear Detroit clacking and wheel chirping), but the Detroit will work just fine for you -- and is typically cheaper than a selectable one.

Well i would like to put lockers on my jeep and any input on what brand or any information would be greatly appreciated. I have looked a two different ones first on was just a regular detroit locker and the other was the ARB air locker. If any one has any info just let me know.
