I know if you upgrade to LSD you get Dana 44 in the rear but what about the front? IS the LSD worth the add? or should i so all in with SelecTrac?

No change to the front axle.

Definitely get anti-slip. Don’t even consider skipping it.

No, only way to get a bigger front axle is with Rubicon trim (or aftermarket, obviously).

I personally vowed to never buy another vehicle with an open diff on the drive axle; I just don't like traction control applying brakes when I'm trying to accelerate. I'd go LSD for that reason alone; the bigger axle is icing on the cake.

SelecTrac would make winter driving much less stressful; I'm sure in NJ you see mixed wet/ice/slush conditions where you would normally be switching between 2H and 4H nonstop to maintain traction. SelecTrac just automates that process, which may or may not matter to you. I think it's kind of fun shifting the transfer case in reaction to traction loss, but I also drive a manual transmission so it makes sense for me.
