Do you want it to crawl at all or will it be more of a trail rig? Locked diffs makes for the best performance on the rocks but it will steer horribly. Open diffs dont do very well when offroading but turn easier. A locked rear and open front is a good mixture for trail rigs.

You lock so both tires will always spin/turn. Do you want both tires to spin/turn?
