Most diffs on crawlers come locked, and the only one I can think of off the top of my head that has a diff that can be locked and unlocked is the Venom Creeper, :https://www.banggood.com/ZD-08422-4C...r_warehouse=CN

The only truck that I know of that allows you to lock front and rear diffs individually is the Traxxas TRX-4. The 'Sport' versiono does not include the locking diffs, so make sure to check out the others. It is a ladder type frame construction. They are sold as a kit where you can use your own radio, speed control (ESC), battery, etc. If you buy their pre-assembled rigs, they come with a decent radio and all you need to buy is batteries and a battery charger. I have had great luck with their 'EZ-Peak dual' charger, and using 1 of their 7600mAh 2-cell Lithium batteries, I get hours of run time on single charge. They sell a 2-battery plus charger combo pack. For $1k, you can get all that and have some left over.

Hope you saved some of that Christmas money! All the trucks on the market are pretty aweseom, so cant really go wrong!
