i have ordered OBX it comes with an open rear axle when you put it in 2wheel drive which 2wheels are active. also when you put it in 4wheel drive does it activate all 4 wheels and if so why do you need locking front or rear axles if all 4 wheels are pulling.

2wd will be the rear axle.
With open differentials when it's in 4wd both axles will get power. But in low traction situations, if a wheel spins that wheel will get all the power and the other won't be pushing at all. Locking differentials lock the wheels on that axle together, so if one spins the other will get power to pull you free.

If you haven't seen this video yet. It is an informative watch.. Start at 2:18. Also, it is widely speculated that the computer would activate some type of limited slip in addition to a physical limited slip. The GOAT modes should also assist in that aspect.
