Hill climbing solid axle or independent suspension

Tell me why don't they use independent suspension for hill climbing buggies? Or why don't they use solid axle in the rear and independent up front. Cause you can use independent front suspension for the jumping part of the hill climb. An you can have the ability of having the rear solid axle for climbing cause you can only really lock a solid axle not a independent. And solid axles are stronger. I don't know I maybe be wrong but that's why I made this thread. Can y'all just tell me if I'm right or wrong.

Locking the diff has noting do with whether its a live axle or independent, thats at the diff. Expense of independent would most likely be the reasoning, along with the added joints, bushings, suspension
