I have seen the ARB air lockers are those the best out there? I like to hit trails and mud occasionally. I was wheeling today and I was in a spot where my wheels wouldn't spin where I needed them the power was going to the wheels that didn't need to be buried anymore ha ha so I was to change that asap but I want to see what people are recommending and running. Thanks guys!!!
I'll TRY to translate.....
" I have a 84 CJ-7 that is stock other than the 31" tires. Living in Alaska, I see a lot of snow and mud and my open differentials really limit me off road. I've looked into the ARBs and the selectable lockers seem to be the best.
What are you guys using and what would you suggest in my case?"
This is one of those questions where you're probably not going to get a definitive answer. Personally, I like the air lockers (especially for the front). I just don't like having the front axle locked while driving on icy roads, so for me a selectable locker is a must (Air-locker, E-locker, OX-locker, etc...). A Detroit for the rear is great, although you have to get used to the ratcheting sound when making a tight turn as well as the occasional Detroit bang and hop. If you want to beef up your front axle, ARB makes a 30 spline locker which allows for stronger shafts (similar to a Dana44). Just my opinion... others will certainly differ.
