Any of those can be left unlocked for street use which is best/safest for slick streets. For offroad times, push the button or pull the lever and your axle is locked for awesome offroad traction.
There is one more selectable locker called an ECTED but not many think it's worth installing & personally, I agree. Its issues center around that it is clutch-based which means it can slip on a tough obstacle (BAD!!!) and its clutch pack will eventually wear out.

|tbk125||so i would have to do something with a switch? would i want it in the front or back?|

|Jerry Bransford||If you need 4x4 to get around in Buffalo, you don't want an automatic locker up front at all. Steering would be dangerous, the locker would cause a lot of understeer whenever you were in 4x4.|

|tbk125||what would be the pros and cons of locking the front with a lunch box? and i do live in buffalo ny so i drive in alot of ice and snow|

|619random||I have the dana 44 rear with drum brakes. I was told they only came with disc brakes, is this true? Sorry not trying to hijack thread, just wanted to ask a quick question.|

The No-Slip is MUCH better behaved when in the rear, I personally would not install any of those other lockers into a rear axle. But if you have to drive on icy roads & highways much during the winter or drive on sloping icy or snow-covered trails, not even the No-Slip is a good choice.
There are better choices for the rear axle but all of those, like the Detroit Locker, ARB Air Locker, etc. cost significantly more.

|tbk125||im pretty sure its the 44 judging by the photo|

First go look at your rear axle & tell us if you have a Dana 35 or a Dana 44. We can't make any locker recommendations until we know that.
The first pic below is a Dana 35c, the second is the stronger optional extra-cost Dana 44.

|wavebacktothetj||Go look at your axle if it has a flat rubber plug it's a dana35 if it has a metal hex shaped plug it's a dana44|
