Deep mud bogs, huh? It's kinda high
I would get axles with an open diffs and lunchbox the front & rear. Since you're mostly doing mudding and some other stuff, you really want traction, and no clutch- type LSD is gonna provide you with that.
I had an F8.8/ 4.88s/ Detroit locker at the back of my XJ on 35s, daily drove it as well, in the rear IMO an auto-locker is almost unnoticable. You know it's there but it doesn't matter since it won't really make your turning radius increase or anything like that. You sometimes chirp the rears a bit more on tight corners in city driving, or turning into a parking lot, but that's about it. Even winter driving on snowy/ icy roads with the Creepy Crawlers I had was a blast. Certainly tail-happy, but always predictable
Since you're in Florida, you don't have to worry the slightest bit about winter qualities
