if your going to hunt yards for the c200 or somethings similar, you may as well get the locker if you can.
Id look at the toyo if you want a selection of parts, theres not a ton of options for the nissan stuff, though they are both plenty stout.

You will notice it. My tacoma sucks in sloppy mud or deep snow because it gets hung up. I've got 31's on it. I've had to use my subaru to drag the truck around to get it out before. I could drive the wagon around the truck breaking fresh tracks vs the truck being in established packed ruts and stuck. The wagon only had 29's on it. I've also had the wagon up trails that a fullsize 80's chevy couldn't make it up because their diffs were plowing a trench in the middle of the two ruts.
With a solid axle as soon as the ruts get high enough that the diff is the ground thats pretty much it.Your stuck unless the front can still get enough traction to move you.or is there not that much of a difference?
That said, a solid axle is a lot stronger than the ifs and you can get better articulation out of them.
