Is the IFS tough enough for a front locker?

Ok, i've got a few locker questions:
I'm looking into installing lockers on my truck, most likely ARB's, but i was wondering if anyone has a locker in the front diff and how the CV axles and everything holds up. I'll be keeping with my 32's and 3.73's, but i dont want to put a locker in and then find out i keep breaking axles or something. I also saw something about the front being a reverse rotation 7.5" shared only by the new FJ's so its harder to find a locker for it. anyone know if this is true?
one more: what locker is everyone using in the rear end your trucks?
Anything would help me.

If you do find one for the rear I can install it for you. Or you can use my write up.
