Lockers and Axle Changes...

Hey
I bought a 99 TJ sport a few months back and am fixing it up and making it a serious off road vehicle.
It has stock dana 30 front and dana 35 rear axles. It does not have any lockers and that is my number 1 project right now.
should I buy lockers that fit with my current dana axles or should I wait and get bigger better newer axles and then put lockers on them?
Whats my best option?

Wouldn't spend anything on your rear axle. In particular, it will not do well with a locker.

Agreed. The general concensus is an 8.8 swap, which is what I did. It fought me during install but I finally got her tamed and running smooth.
