You want to get lockers for the rear FIRST - a limited slip differential will ... slip. Lockers on the front are more than likely unnecessary, and will make the truck harder to steer in tight situations. The tendency will be to want to go straight.

Yes Jose, I would also vote for the REAR locker... Going uphill is always going to be harder and since weight shifts to the back axle, it is there you want BOTH tires getting power... specially if one gets tipped into the air on those big rocks.
