Selectable electric lockers are very good. The advantage is that you will never have to worry about an air leak. With ARB's you can also install a holding tank, and can air up your tires with it. Selectable lockers are much easier on the drive line than mechanical lockers. Eaton is another company that makes electric lockers, and you should be able to get any of these on line.

Eaton electic lockers are fairly new, and our local Jeep Outfitters has one on display. Eaton is a very good manufacturer of components, and has an industry wide reputation for reliability. They have been supplying the commercial industry(heavy equipment, trucking industry) with excellent products for years. Here is one site that carries them;

You also mentioned the OX above which is a very good selectable locker that is neither air or electric operation. It is cable operated locker, which takes out the air and electric component of failure. The only beef with this one is that the cable can be crushed or ripped away. However seeing as you don't do a lock of rock crawling this may be a great option for you.

I actually use lock right lockers in my difs. However if I was going to move to a selectable locker for myself I would go with an OX.
