Wait for locking diff?

I live in southern New England where snow and ice are a problem to deal with from late November to late March. I ordered a Titan 4x4 with off-road package and the dealer will be submitting their vehicle order in the first week of February which means an April delivery. I was thinking of asking the dealer to request that my truck be built on or after April 4th so that it will have the rear locking diff. which means a May delivery at the earliest. In either case the snow and ice will be gone and I will have to wait until next winter to try out the truck in a winter wonder land. With that being said...

1. Is the rear locking diff worth the wait of 1-2 more months for delivery?

2. Will the rear locking diff be much of a help in snow and ice?

3. Would the active brake limited slip be adequate without the rear locking diff to propel me through snow and ice?

hey guys i have been informed on the locking diff that the option will only be able to be activated in 4 wheel low only. no other setting will it activate. and since its electronic it will partially be controlled by the computer. hope this helps because i personally dont go off road enough and that vdc option on the tow package is awsome.i used it when it snowed in tn and drove to work in 2 wheel with the vdc, its great you definately will want that. :)
