ARB is tried and true, but I like the simplicity of the E-locker. Go with a selectable locker for the best of both worlds.

I run E-lockers and am very satisfied with them. Easy to fix on the trail. ARB are great but I didn't want to deal with air lines. Yeah, I don't think that Dana 30 can hold up to 37's. Hell, why stop there put on 39's, Monster Jeep!!! Lol!

We just ordered an Eaton E locker from Stan at JPI for the TJ, It has a Detroit in the back right now. My husband just couldn't stand the fact my Rubi has front & rear lockers and he doesn't, haha.

He's wanting to go 37's on it when he replaces the 35's, again he just wants 37's because I have 35's and he want's to go bigger. He's got the 456 gearing and an Atlas 2, 5:0 so he's got me beat on the gears

I picked out everything and he had no say on the build of my JKUR, I'm not even telling him all the goodies I have or he will try to out do me or copy me

Jeep competition can get expensive!!! My poor G35 will never get new wheels or coil overs

Haha, see I don't ask. If I want something I just go buy it, I don't buy things I can't afford though and with so much money going into the Jeeps lately I'm being sensible. It sucks, lol.

I had to have a crown at the dentist and told him I was spending Jeep & G35 mod money, he laughed. I didn't think it was funny

If we could mod our cars as inexpensive as the Jeeps it would be nice, I think that's why it's so much easier to spend on them.

Too funny! I'm always fighting for mod money between my jeep and my wifes Z, lol! She says she needs upgraded brakes before I can get rock sliders!

That's a tough one, hard to compromise unless you get one brake & one slider Although, sliders prevent damage and if the brakes are still good on the Z, I may have to go with the sliders first

Can't believe I said that Good luck!!

Nope, rotors are warped, and she likes driving the mountain roads, so I lose!

Yes you do, safety trumps body damage. I thought it was just an upgrade, not a repair. You going Brembo or Stoptech on the Z? When my rotors need replaced I'm going with the Stoptech on the G.

It may never happen though, It's an 06 and I barely have 55,000 miles on it. She's a garage queen since I drive the Jeep so much more.

Figure I'll upgrade with Stoptech slotted rotors and Hawk HPS pads all around. Her's is an 07 with 57K. It's a roadster, so she mostly drives it in the summer months.
