Rear Locker Chevy Express??

I was out searching for new areas to go target shooting this weekend and got stuck in some soft sand. I have a pretty good feeling that if I had a rear locker installed I would of not dug in and got stuck! Luckily we dug my van out and were able to get unstuck.
So my question is, what would be a good rear locker for daily driver and good in my terrain? I have a 2003 Chevy Express 2500 6.0.
Thanks

Don't have an answer, but thinking of a locker for my E350 for the same reason.

Used to daily this beast with a detroit. After some driver adjustments it was only an issue in the rain, either go for it and lock up through corner or let it coast through.

What about finding a used G80 factory locker from GM? No idea if if fits that year van but they've put lots of them in trucks and vans over the last ten years or so so I'd think a junk yard or used one would be cheap and easy to find.

Also, not a true locker really I don't think but more functionally a LSD.

They are expensive but a ARB airlocker will allow you to turn it on and off as needed.

That's what I am leaning towards. I drive my van about 100 miles daily so I think a selectable locker is the way to go.
