Air Locker Installation?

Where is a good place with some good prices to get some ARB air lockers installed in So-Cal?

I drive an hour to Walmart or civilization, two for a proper install on a vital part might be worth it.

I drove from San Diego to have JeePerformance install gears and lockers on my Jeep. Knowing its getting done right and having the confidence of their customer support was worth every minute and every dollar in gas for me.

I towed my jeep to JPI. Excellent craftmanship and customer service keep me going back. They do great work and back it up. They really care...

I also made the 2 hour trek one way to have my gears and arb installed at JPI. Well worth the drive.

No. I dropped it off Friday night after work and picked it up the following weekend. I had my girlfriend follow me in my other vehicle.

I always weigh the pros and cons.

My worst fear would be going to non reputable shop or even some big name shops for that matter and paying for new gears, new lockers, new chromoly shafts and having them installed wrong grenading the differentials and the shop blaming me for negligence when it was their $12.00 an hour emplyee who screwed it up.

Plus I like giving my money to people I like if I have a choice.

JPI installed my rear ARB + onboard air system. I wouldn't take it anywhere else.

I might make the trip out there, I haven't decided yet. 4 hours round trip just seems like a lot
