Front locker

Looking for opinions on a selectable front locker. I have a 2000TJ, d30 in front. Don't currently have an air compressor.
Thanks

OX Locker. We have both in our staff vehicles. The OX is beefier, and virtually zero maintenace. However, proper install of the cable is critical.

If you go with the ARB then it is critical that the ARB is installed using a case spreader. If the shop does not you are a good candidate to have issues with holding air pressure under loads.

If you're looking for cheap, quiet and easy to install, go for an Aussie locker.

Are you saying I am fat? I mean what is this issue with holding air pressure under loads, you are talking about? LOL As for my ARB's so far they have done very well for me. I will say as you said, install is the key.

I run automatic lockers front and rear but if I were to win the lottery, I'd go for ARBs. They're well proven and reliable, all you need is a good installer who knows how to install them correctly.
