There is all kinds of lockers for that but will be pricey. I would recommend a welded rear, which will chew tires, just like a locker,There is a soft locker but they do wear heavily with street use.Most of the time a true POSI will be the best answer as it is almost un-noticeable on the street,and still dig in good on the trails.

Save your money up and get a real truck. This four byin stuff is progresive, and you can only go so far with an s10. Then all the money spent is wasted as you progres to the next step.
Gonna build me a truck

weld the back
(I've been thinking about doing that so let me know if it breaks)
the only worry is axle hop as they are small axles
if my truck is handicapped do i get to park by the door?

see jethro's truck.
see my truck.
see digger, redneck justices, heavy's, u-can's... all of these started out stock.. it don't matter what you start with, the axles never stay stock, the engines don't stay stock, tranny and t-cases rarely stay stock... so what does it matter what ya start with? it's going to get changed out anyways...
weld it if it's not the primary truck, you can likely get a cheapie slEZ-e locker for like 2-300

If you weld the rear you can't run all terrains you will brake axles
on the road . Welded up the rear of a friends a couple of years ago
when the axle broke it slid out (remember it's a C-Clip axle) and scared the crap out of him . With muds they don't get as much traction on pavement and it seems to be better but I still wouldn't trust to much in it
