Even with both tires on the ground that doesn't mean each tire has the same amount of down force. Tire contact doesn't always=traction. Locking your front can reduce maneuverability. I wouldn't want a front locker unless it was a selectable one.

Must be a reason a lot of people are saying the same thing.
We're trying to help you increase the capabilities of the vehicle as a whole.
Again your shocks currently afford you 9" of travel, at best you're going to get 3" more than that, likely only 1-2".
You agree that the budget for those two inches is in the same ballpark as a new locked rear.
You simply don't want to accept that one will give you a lot more capabilities than the other.
It's your Jeep, I'll try to share knowledge either way...
How about this thought.
What has a better resale value, your TJ with it's current suspension with a locked d44, or a cut up & welded frame with more travel on an open d35?
Why is one worth more than the other.

I see the benefits of each, but right now the suspension is more of a priority for me, hence the reason why I started this thread about the SUSPENSION. I'm not trying to argue the reasons for lockers, I just want to have as many kinks out of my lift plan as possible before I buy the parts and do it.
