Go with the 42, open 4.10 and drop in a locker.

im not sure if a lunch box in the rear will be good for me if you ment a ARB its not in this build budget. . i was hoping for a ls factory 8.8 and a lunch box up front on this set up. ive never been impressed with rear lockers while daily driving in the winter snow like todays 4 inches .ive been watching the local u pullit for new wrecks weekly. is there a better mid ranged priced rear limited slip/locker you know of for DD application?.im open to suggestions from others experience .

My DD is not my Jeep but both vehicles have front and rear lunchbox lockers. We don't get as much snow as you guys do in NY but neither vehicle has let me down in any weather, even 2-3 feet of snow. Your plan sounds fine, but the 8.8 is tough to find with that combo and nothing beats a locker. With a lunchbox in either axle, you're going to slide around more but you'll get stuck a lot less.

Although I recommend F&R lockers, a front locker and open rear will still get you through a good bit. Here's my jeep a few years ago with only a front locker, 4" lift, and 33s, no other modifications:

With an auto trans and longer wheelbase, it'll be less noticeable than in a Wrangler.
