    How long would it take for an average mechanic to install an arb rear locker on my truck? More like 10 hours or a few?

    Multi-point tow hooks, new bored 2.7L engine, custom paint. 3 inch adjustable Fabtech front coils, 2.5 inch rear AAL. Front Aussie locker. LED bed lights. Full LED conversion interior and exterior. Relentless Fabrication front and rear bumpers. 4X4innovation sliders. BAMF bed rack. CVT rooftop tent.
    Your truck shows to be a 2wd, so I am assuming you mean for the rear diff. If all that he was doing was installing the locker, you are looking at about a 5-7 hour job, depending on how difficult the rear end was to set back up. Time would increase if he was to also install the air compressor.

    Scratches, dents, and junkyard parts.
    Agreed. ^^ And would be different depending on the mechanic's familiarity with lockers and ARB in particular.
