After much reading and getting opinions, apparently lots of ideas out there but not many with supporting information.  A consultation with Eaton tech rep convinced us that it's not the best idea with drive trains as they are today and with driving habits most drivers are used to.  It's too bad, such a tradeoff for a superb product for off road.

We had the powertrax no-slip in the rear of Julies liberty that was a DD... I believer they are similar to the Detroit locker... we never had any issue..

I have driven stuff on the street with a locker in the rear. It's not much different than open. As long as it's not a spool you will hardly notice it.

It's a buddy's truck...  doesnt like the irritability of a selectable, air or electromagnetic or the cable, too many things to go wrong and cost is rediculous...  probable he will end up tru-trac front and rear after talking with eaton.
