Best selectable locker for a D30

Im saving up for a selectable locker for my D30. I have narrowed it down to either the arb or an ox. I wanted some pros and cons about each.

Both are equally well known and you should be happy with either one my vote would be for ARB, just because there name is so well trusted, OX has been bought and sold a few times over the years.

I will second the ARB... I have had ARB's F&R for about 3 years now and aside from having to replace one airline due to install error, they have been 100% reliable. They are the best thing I have ever done to my jeep. Highly recommend

ARB also has a good reputation for standing behind their product. I had a problem with my D30 locker 2 or 3 years after it was purchased and they took care of me with no hassles.

Another ARB fan here. About 5 years and no issues...

The install is the most important factor, in my opinion, with the ARB's.
