Picking up the new one and installing it today. Probably gonna do a little wheeling this weekend if anyone wants to join. Not sure when or where but it sounds like a good idea.

3 trucks is a lot of work. We laid a 15x20 pad and it took forever. Hope it all went well.

Yup went great, there were six of us finishing. I had two areas, one was 16' x 87' and the other was 5' x 75' to widen my driveway. I have parking for everyone here.

A pre charged tank, a line, a reg, some wired switches, an ARB air line and the ARB. The york has the same ingredients and a few more. You dont have to run goodyear
pneumatic rubber line. That does fail. You can run metal lines if you want. I run the rubber lines and because my oil situation is nill, I change my lines every
yr or two (25.00) for good housekeeping.
ANY system will fail. Will a York fail 1st? Maybe. If its done hillbilly half A55.
I ran F&R ARB's for 12+ years. After 12+ years, I had a grand total of zero (that's $0.00) maintenance costs on the entire system. Yep, original ARB compressor
, both lockers, airlines, switches, solenoids, harness etc.

My front ARB has now been in Taylors Jeep for ~2 years. The rear ARB is getting ready to be installed in Taylors Jeep too.

So, ~14 years of 100% reliability is a good track record IMO.

To put things into perspective - that's 80,132 miles (yes, 80 thousand, one hundred thirty two) all offroad miles with the ARB's. A huge portion of that 80,132 miles is with
them locked or periodically cycled. I average over 6,600 miles a year offroad in my YJ.

Quality installation is necessary, otherwise you'll have issues is what I'm getting at.

Seriously, this is me. I do this especially in crowded places. I decide who is going to be severely injured first and who I don't need to bother with, and who I should probably kill quickly so they don't come back at me.
I also never sit with my back to the door. Never have. I'm not paranoid, I've just seen too much crap in my life. People are unpredictable. When I worked as a bouncer I was surprised by the ones I didn't think were a threat. I learned quickly that everybody is a threat if you don't know them.
I'm positive I'm not the only one like this....

Joe, I was referencing my rubber air lines for OBA, not anything with the ARB or the blue ARB lines.... I had my ARB in the front 30 for about 15 yrs w/o any issues until the 30 gave up the ghost.. no fault of the ARB.

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

For reliability in air systems look at the material the trucking industry uses.
Their airbrake systems as far as lines go are pretty well trouble free over a million miles. From the compressor use stainless lead hose with a teflon liner.
From the manifold out use the plastic air line they use on trucks, withstands chafing and what not pretty well, do not route it to close to to exhaust heat and you will get years up on years of trouble free service.

Above all happy independence day Y'all
