    I have 31's on my truck and I have minimal rubbing issues. If you run aftermarket wheels with the proper backspacing u should b fine. To get a bit more clearance remove the little metal black box bolted to the wheel well behind the plastic fender well

    Ive heard a lot of mixed reviews on different brands of lockers. Were you thinking of an air locker?

    the ARB air locker is the best locking diff i've seen. one of my friends who owns a cherokee has an arb rear locker and it works flawlessly

    I'm more than willing to spend the money for it to work perfect every time
