Figuring that you work 6 days a week and spent your only day off in your garage, I'd say it's coming along rather quickly. Looks really good, Joe.

Mmmm, three trucks of concrete. Sounds like a wonderful start to my backyard.... All in due time I guess.

I'm here because
my little girl
doesn't need her dad
on two wheels anymore!
.
Camoflauge, camoflauge, I disappear when I pull out of my garage!

PM me for LED light bars and HID off road lights

Here you go. I figured I'd start collecting these and send them your way since they are so simple for newbies to work on. You can walk them through it when you're bored.

Dont cut the wires on them to close as you'll have to crimp onto them. You will have to buy a few things from KillMe.. I mean Kilby.. Alternator pulley for one.... If you need the solenoid or switches for the ARB I have a brand spanking still in the box set I'll $ ya cheap. Wiring is easy for the ARB, wiring for the York is even easier. Get two gauges, one for the ARB one for the accessories, some rubber air line hose, a belt, some fittings, a 2.5 gallon tank and your done.... oh and fab the mount bracket.. or buy one for 100.00 (yikes)....

I probably have $80 in mine .

I wouldn't run that crap if you gave me all the parts, promised a perfect trouble free showroom quality installation for free, and then offered to swing by the trail or camp every time it had a problem.
Thanks for the advice guys, I originally was looking into getting a CO2 kit to activate the lockers. There are tons of people running York systems so it seemed like a better idea to do so since there would be more people to take advice from when trouble shooting and installing one.

But I do like the idea of simplicity and a trouble free set up of a CO2 kit. I just have not found a good enough write up where I can learn the basics on setting up a kit where I can run lockers & fill up tires. (I don't care about power tools)

You could just do an ARB compressor as mentioned but try to find it cheap. They are EXPENSIVE for what you get.. When I had my ARB put in like 12 yrs ago that compressor (and maybe they are better now) SUCKED A55!! If your gonna go that route just get a Viaar compressor.. Dont really care what anyone says, I love my york set up.

You want your locker activation run by a stand alone system that is not used for anything else. Get the small ARB compressor. I have been patient over the last couple of years and picked up 3 of them at different times that are 75 bucks and they come with the harness, 1 switch, pressure switch, and mounting hardware, NIB.

Regardless of the haters, my ARB compressor in the crawler has been in use since 99 and has never had an issue that I didn't cause.

Even if you pay full pop they are generally available for 150 or so. Once you install it and marvel at the very nice plug and play aspect of the system, you will figure out real quick that it is money well spent.

The wiring on the new ones is stupid simple. 12v hot, 12 volt ground, interior light tap, and the rest is plugs that you plug together.

I'm a newbie at a lot of things, compressed air ain't one of them though.

Thanks Blaine, brokenujoint & Climbit for the advise I'll go ahead and look for a compressor to activate only the lockers.

Just to clarify, my intention was to get a simple advice on what was the best source to activate a locker with. I never wanted to start an argument threat on what is better a York, ARB compressor or CO2 kit

But again I have only been in the wheeling community for 3 years and I still consider my self a noob. Compared to you guys that have 8+ years wheeling.

Thanks for advice!
