Yes: 98 / No: 1

ARB has been challenging conventional thinking on off road equipment
designs for over 30 years, and the ARB Air Locker has been a success
from the very beginning. Created to provide 100% traction on demand,
without sacrificing any of your vehicle’s highway driving performance,
ARB Air Lockers employ a 12 volt air compressor designed to activate
(and deactivate) a solid and durable locking mechanism inside the
differential. This gives you the traction you need, when you need it, all
at the flick of a switch, all within the safety and comfort of the driver’s
seat.

The advantage of the ARB Air Locker lies in the pneumatically operated
locking system inside the differential. When activated, the Air Locker
prevents the differential gears from rotating and therefore prevents the
axle shafts from turning independently of each other. With both wheels
tied directly to the rotation of the ring gear the vehicle maintains
maximum possible traction at all times. When unlocked, it operates just
like conventional "open" differentials.

In addition to providing outright improvements to a 4x4’s off road
capabilities, the Air Locker offers significant environmental benefits.
When approaching difficult terrain, less reliance is put on momentum.
An Air Locker equipped truck can be driven in a slower, safer and more
controlled manner as a result of vastly improved traction. This style of
driving greatly reduces the likelihood of incurring vehicle damage and
lessens the environmental impact as well.

Cons: Sometimes it takes a bit to get it to unlock like relieve some of the tension on the drive train.

Price: $800.00
Pros: These lockers have saved my #$% countless times. Flip a switch for the compressor then flip a second switch to actuate the locker...and your out of trouble.
Cons: I guess a con could be that my un-locked friends always send me to the front of the line. LOL!
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If you like NOT having to get out and shove logs and rocks under the wheel(s) that are spinning helplessly up off the ground, get a locker. If you prefer the simplicity of flipping a switch to lock your axles, get an ARB.

Pros: Flawless operations
Cons: Should really plan out air line routing to prevent nuisance issues with air flow.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installed ARB locker on 8.8 axle at same time as ring and pinion upgrade. I purchased an ARB compressor for air supply, but nitrogen with regulator works well also. I have used the lockers on every wheeling adventure so far with no issues. Highly recommend, if you want an air locker.

Comments: Very expensive, but easy to use. The air compressor that is the CK model from ARB fills my tires up from 15lbs to 33 lbs of pressure in < 3 minutes. That on board air was worth it too.
