If someone came up to you and offered you your choice of manual lockers front and rear which would you choose and why? Consider reliability, installation, and ease of use but not price. AND.....Post Your Reasoning!!!



EDIT: Damn that 2 minute poll rule.
Can a mod fix that please?


Your choices are....

1. ARB
2. Auburn Gear ECTED
3. Eaton E-locker
4. Ox
5. Other

ARB or OX.

I have the ARBs because it´s easier to line up the cables and air hoses in a DD. The OX cables need a big diameter and the switches need more room.
I also like the idea of an OBA to air up my tires.

no auburn exted because the clutch packs wear out. then it doesn´t lock 100%.

I am an ARB guy. I guess the reason is, the thought of air lockers really turn me. I am totaly un educated on how well the work and how reliable they are. I will say in some of my hot rods I have used Eaton lockers and I am not that impressed (seem kinda unreliable). The only way I know to lock a rear end for sure, is a full or mini spool.lol
