I will hopefully be recieving my arb airlocker that I purchased off eBay shortly. Anyone with experience in install and rehearing have interest in helping/teaching? Not much to offer but will offer some for any help. Thank you!

I wish I could help, also wish I could direct you to someone who could. The guy who did my ARB install is no longer in the business.

Good luck!

Yea, the ARB install and gear set-up isn't easy. Just take your time.

Do you have the tools you need?

Where are you located? I may be able to help sometime. I could at least stop over and point you in the right direction.

If you are taking things apart, make sure you know exactly where everything was. It will make it easier to setup the new gears.

You can try "On and Off Road" in Oberlin, OH and there is also HMH Offroad in Twinsburg, OH

Call me or e-mail me
Good luck

I'm in seven hills. If I don't get assistance I was going to just cough up the 900$ that hmh wants to do the front and rear.

Does that price include any parts, or is that just labor? I'll bet Bob at On and Off Road is cheaper. He is a great guy and will probably do a better job.

Are the axles still in the Jeep? How soon do you need it done?

They're still under the jeep. That's with an install kit for the front and me running the airline and hooking up the wiring for the arb. I don't need it done quickly it's not my dd. Just going through jeep withdrawls and would really like it to be back on the road

That's a lot of money for labor. The install kit is only about 100 bucks retail. I charged 250.00 each plus parts the last time I did gears for a guy (they were out of the Jeep). The wiring and air lines might have been a few more bucks, but not much.

I have all the tools needed, I'll check my calendar to see if I can help you out. It's been a crazy summer for me and I'm about to move so I can't promise anything but I'll try. Give me a call sometime this week.

Thank you. That'd be awesome if you could help especially since you have the tools I won't have to invest a ton into them like I was going to. I work nights so I'll call you tomorrow afternoon when I wake up probably around 4ish
