I'd re-consider the Aussie in the rear. It's going to be constantly making a lot noise.

For icy roads, I wouldn't install an automatic locker in the rear either. I'd go for a selectable locker like an ARB in the rear. Some don't mind automatic lockers in the rear on icy roads but you have to watch your driving pretty constantly to avoid a spinout.

When you have a choice, buy American.

This is falling under the 'nothing worthwhile is quick or easy' category. I might as well do it right the first time, rather than going cheap. And I'm not at all worried about noise, function over form every time for me.
Strength and honor.
