Nice Diff Locker Tutorial

I know it is not a Jeep, but I wanted to know exactly what lockers did.

That's pretty awesome. Does anyone know how expensive it would be to add an air locker to a Jeep?

Yea, so for the full front and rear plus you'll need a compress, expect around $2000 if you're doing it yourself. It's roughly $850/ea for the lockers + $250 for the ARB compressor, or you can find your own a/c compress and rig it up yourself for less with some fabrication. I know Jerry has had experience with a York F210 compressor and so have a few others, but I don't know how well it pulls double duty with lockers.

Polyperformance sells them cheaper This isn't really a tutorial of locking differentials and how they really work. It's more of an advertisement for ARB lockers.
