The best kinds IMO, are the selectable lockers (open when disengaged and spooled when engaged).
- ARB - the "top of mind" selectable for me, it is operated and engaged via air pressure. As such, one will also require an air source.
- OX - Actuated with a cable. Simple but effective concept.
- eLocker - Uses electrical current to engage.
All three have their pros and cons but are proven units. The key to performance is to ensure the installer knows what they are doing and has a lot of experience.
If I had the $$$, I would install a selectable in the front and back. If you have a rear D35, do not lock unless you are upgrading the 27 splined shafts with Superior's Super35 30 splined kit.
