Until then it seems that 4.56s and some type of lockers are what I'm leaning toward.
Having the D44 in the rear helps alot. You can lunch box that and it will hold up great and save some cash, But it will make it locked all the time. I run a Detroit in the rear of mine and am very happy with it. But in snow/ice until you get used to it, Its white knuckle in 2wd. But nothing a couple mins in a parking lot wont fix and get you used to it.
If you go that route then a selectable up front would work perfect. Nothing wrong locking both axles up, But DD it IMO wouldn't be a good option. But I'm going off of where you live and "what could" happen etc. But if its open until you lock it you will be fine with one in the front.
There are many options you can do, Just have to pick the best one for your driving style and needs and go from there. Good luck
