hmmm i need your opinion

bought a jeep that a kid put 4:10 in the front and left 3:73 in the rear never put it in 4wheel drive so its not hurt...i am matching the rear to the front and i have the money to put 1 set of lockers in ...what is better for light crawling/off roading, to put them in the front or the rear?

in the front, cornering will be challenging if the hubs are locked in. not something you want for driving on the road. most put the locker in the rear first.

Rear.change to 4.10s at the same time, gear work is expensive

Depends on who you ask and what rear is in the jeep. Some say if you have a D35 don't lock it. At this point in time I am running a D30 with a truetrac and 4.56 and a D35 with Detroit locker and 4.56 gears. I have no issues with it being locked and have not broken it yet wheeling.

IMO I would look at the price of doing a TT both front and rear and matching the 4.10's in the rear if the cost will be the same as just locking the front and doing the rear gear in the rear. You have to figure if they are going to pull the front apart to lock it as well as do the regear in the rear you are adding cost to the project for 2 regears.

IslandTj on here is running TT front and rear and stands by it. Had I not bought the axles I have now already done for a good price, (over half less than regearing and TT) I would have gone that route.

My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.
