That's what I was trying to help you answer since you stated you wanted a rear locker first.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

i have an aussie in my D35 with 33s. the offroad capability is a huge difference. i have friends that are in 4 as soon as we start the trail and im still in 2 half way thru it. sometimes i dont like it because it makes everything less off a challange haha. but the on the road it is ok.. clicks alot when turning and be carefull in the rain if you have M/Ts that arent siphed.. im dreading the winter. when i upgrade the 35 in putting the locker in the front D30

98 XJ, 4.0, aw4, np231 AA SYE, 4.5 Rough Country, 33x12.5 r15 M/T, HP D30, D35 aussie and SOLID cover.

I have powertrax no-slip in the 8.25 behind my '99 and love it. It was a 30 minute install, is so well mannered on pavement that my wife doesn't even notice its there and has saved my butt at least a few times while out camping.

If you have an auto tranny, a Detroit is highly recommended in the rear axle. With a manual, I would get a selectable in rear.
If you have an NP242 TC, I recommend ARB or other selectable in the front. With an NP231, pick anything for the front.

since i have a 242 and couldnt afford a selectable, i went with a detroit truetrac in the front. works well at keeping both spinning unless one comes off the ground. good for a weekend wheeler/dd like myself

It's the classic offroader mistake - building more rig than you need. I did the same thing a decade ago with a different vehicle. That's why skidplates, a cowl snorkel and a rear locker are really my only mods.
