4Jeepn I run ARB's front and rear. They run off an air compressor mounted high in the engine bay. You can use either a blue plastic line or a steel line that plugs into the axle housing. Then I have 3 switches mounted in the jeep, one for the compessor and two for the lockers. The cable lockers such as OX lockers have gotten better, I recall some ealry one's that had engaugement issues. Think parking brake line, as you use it it tends to slip a bit, thus the ox line would slip and not allow for full mesh of the parts.

One other item to keep in mind, if you have the dana 35 rear, a locker back there is going to put a lot of stress on that axle. It tends to blow up when that happens, You many wish to upgrade your axle shafts to help with this.

jeeperman ARB's are air lockers. I had one for several years, with many submersions, and never had an issue with it... The cable lockers are fine, but what I have heard about them is that they are a bit touchy (at least they used to be) and it can be difficult to route the cable just right to get easy operation/engagement out of them.

mrbigjeep arb is an air locker. you got to have a source of air to use it. i think you use some type of on board compressor. i hear a lot of good things about ARB's. they are expensive though

rebelBullDawg325 are they air? electronic? cable? i'd really like cable, seems like it'd be the hardest to mess up

bluvikng IMO.......stands for, " In My Opinion", so back to my first statement.............ARB's are the best selectable locker.

rebelBullDawg325 1st off, on a side not, i see IMO alot, whats it mean? back to the lockers, i'm sure they have come along way, but i jsut have trouble convincing myself to use anything electronic that may be submerged from time to time.... call me old fashion
