If you're paying 850 for a locker, why not pony up the 180 for the ARB compressor?

x2. Harbor Freight is really hit or miss. Don't know that I'd trust their compressor when I'm sunk in the mud and need to lock up.

I'd have to agree. I paid the extra for the ARB compressor when I did my air lockers, and the compressor came with a very nice wiring harness and all the hardware and switches needed were in either the locker package or the compressor package. Real slick system with both lockers and compressor.

My experiences with Harbor Freight are not that good. Most of the stuff I've ever bought from them has failed in under a week.

Go for the CKMP12 over the CKSA12. It's $70 more than the smaller compressor but then you get an on board compressor that has enough output to air up at the end of the day.

Only reason is I have a spare hf compressor in the shop and the harness and all the switches from a arb kit needed a cheap alternative for this weekend run at moon rocks

I have the ARB12VDCHD-compressor/mounting plate, I don't needit for lockers, but it's fine for airing up tires and the mounting plate, keeps it high/clear and draws clean air--

Harbor Freight is great for emergency, but not much more !!
