    Ok! Finally found an air locker from ARB that I was able to afford used! Very excited to finally pull the trigger on this!
    I bought the 3rd member assembled and ready to install.
    So my question is this,
    What do I need to install the locker parts wise, am I missing anything here?

    Parts:
    -Assembled 3rd
    -ARB CKSA12 air compressor kit: which should include the hose and everything correct?
    -ARB locker and compressor switch
    -Diff fluid

    Am I missing anything?
    I tried to look up the parts but I have drawn a blank, it's there but I can't find it anywhere.
    Any help is appreciated! Thanks image.jpg

    If its a fully assembled third, you should be able to just swap it out. Install air compressor, switch and run airlines and you're good to go. Looks like you have it covered

    All of the parts should have come with the locker. The main parts you need will be the wiring harness, air line, and air line fittings. You will also need plumbers tread dope or tape to seal the threads on the fittings on the compressor. My air line came with push-on air ine fittings (very easy to put together).

    if i were you i'd sub the plumbers tape for loctite blue for a 0 leak install.. ive had air horns b4 and used the tape... nothing but headaches.. im upgrading my system to 200 psi so loctite is the best way to go

    Advice from a pipefitter. Don't ever use Teflon tape on air lines unless the tape is specifically for air application. Regular Teflon could clog orifices and go somewhere you don't want it.

    Teflon is not used for sealing purposes, just as a thread lubricant!

    When I bought my air lockers, I thought they came with the air lines. The compressor had everything else (all electrical, switches, harness and fittings). I Installed the lockers and crimped a stub hose on them for a couple of weeks before actually hooking everything up. Besides diff fluid I would also recommend new drain and fill gaskets. Mine leaked on one and I should have installed new ones but was lazy. Make sure you follow the proper break in procedure.

    Check TTORA, there was a good write up there I used when installing my ARB's.

    I correct myself after looking at the pics again. The gears look new so you do need to follow the proper break in procedure....

    Did anybody figure a way to use the factory diff lock switch for the ARB locker and make the dash light come on when locked?
