dude, i hope there is no offense taken because i was and still am slightly, a jeep noob...if you just got a 4.5 inch lift, and dont know what a locker is, then im afraid you may be doing this the wrong way...
4x4 is THE ONLY way to wheel IMO(in my opinion)
and a 4.5 inch kit requires bigger tires...your gonna want some big tires and trim, and then regearing, and your not gonna want some axles, and a lift isnt the easiest work...
if your gonna just show your jeep and not wheel it, then your lift is okay but if you plan on some decent wheeling, your gonna want 4x4
a locked 2wd is strong, but i would take open diffs 4x4 than a locked 2 IMHO
