On the plus side, with a front locker it’s generally easier to crawl the front tires up on an obstacle. In most cases, once the front tires are up on an obstacle, you can use a bit of momentum to bump the rear tires up in the rare situation when the rear tires are not pretty firmly planted with most of the vehicle’s weight. Also, strain on the axle while driving on-road is less because the front axle is not engaged and the locker will just ratchet, making a little noise as you go around turns.
