Locker and gear reccomendation?

I have a 66 cj5 with a buick 225 v6,4 inch skyjacker lift,33" tires.with an SM420 transmission and not sure about transfercase.its a dana 18 I think.I was thinking of going with an OX locker up front ie cable or electric and 456 gears front and back.I have a Dana 27 and what are you guys running? Is this going to be a good combination?

Ok hear we go. I'd lose the dana 27 front end in favor of a narrowtrac Dana 30 with disc brakes or a cut down Dana 44 front a Scout or a Waggy.

1 Id look for a 71 CJ5 Dana 44 flanged rear axle. and add gears and locker
or lose the Dana 18 and favor of a Dana 20 and 72-75 Dana 44 flanged rear axle.
Then you can add a T18.
