What lockers to go with after ReGear

Hey all,
Im running 35's on an 08 JK. Going to regear to 4.88's in january and figured, while the diffs are open, I should lock the front and rear (D44 Rear D30 Front which might get switched to a d44) My question is, What locker should I go with in the rear and what locker should I go with in the front. This is my daily driver, and I do 65% on road and 35% off road driving, but when I offroad, I like to push my Jeep to the limits. I plan on doing more research, but I figured I'd ask around and get some input from everyone on the forums and see what people are running. I was thinking an ox in the back and an elocker in the front. Someone suggested a True Trac, but thats not driver controlled if im correct, and I want a driver controlled locker for the rear. The only thing Im against is the ARB Air locker. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

35% off road is pretty substantial for a daily driver, I'd go ARB. I personally wouldn't bother with an Ox, no particular reason other than I have dealt with ARBs and they've been pretty proven to me.

Selectables all the way regardless which you go with.

I'd suggest ARB front and rear, or a detroit rear and ARB front if you want to keep the cost down. ARB's new warrantee is pretty damn good.

If this is a daily driver you want to look at selectable lockers. We have installed and run ARB's in every JK we have. They give you the best of both worlds. Great on road performance and unbeatable off road strength. If you combine them with a compressor package it will also give you the ability to air up tires after the trail.

Currently, I have an 09' JKUR and have the factory locker setup. Previously, I had a 99 TJ with Cable activated OX lockers front and reAr for 9 of the 13 years that i owned the Jeep) 1st generations). With that being said I would have the OX setup again in a second if I were in a situation where I was gonna/have to redo my locker setup. I had to readjust the rear OX once and then never failed. The cable switch handles are a little more difficult to blend within the vehicle. howver they can be conversation pieces for the inexperienced. they were even purchased used. I have no experience with ARB but many swear by them. Best of luck

FWIW eaton rear is the weaker two pin(ion) still, curious why they are finally offering a rebate after years of not doing so. I ma dding a grizzly and enjoying it thoroughly after just a couple weeks. of course I have 3.8 4.1 auto four door and rain isn't forecast for oh about 6 months or so........

First I'd go 5:13 instead of 4:88 then I'd go ARBs. But I would consider ox just because there are less things to worry about like air hoses, compressor,seals. I run ARBs front and rear, and I have had off and on issues with engagement due to seals leaking internally, but overall I am happy with my current setup
