Default Eaton TrueTrac worth it?

I've been gathering a ton of parts over the past few months for a 16V turbo + T5WC setup.

I'm just curious as to if it's worth it to rebuild the axle with a TrueTrac 912A588 Locker or if it's worthwhile / cost effective to swap in another axle like an Explorer 8.8 with disc brakes (I know this usually requires cut & weld of the whole axle tube and shaft).

I'd rather not do all these upgrades to the stock dana 30 and have it explode or something.
