Yes, you can do it at anytime. Just remember that unlocking the bootloader will wipe your device including wiping whatever is in your storage. Just like doing a factory reset it wipes Everything! AFTER you get a custom recovery you can do a factory reset from inside of recovery without wiping your storage.
