    ARB is much better than an E locker for many reasons....I thought an arb is disengaged with air...so you are locked up with no air pressure...its that right?

    It's the opposite. You wouldn't want your locker to engage if you lost pressure on the freeway.

    There's no "E-locker" for the front. The only locker option for the front is ARB, so if you're gonna do that in the front you may as well do it in the rear too.

    oh ok...but what would it hurt if a locker engaged on the free way? so what if both wheels on an axle get = power...I thought it was only a big deal when turning or sharp curves...when one wheel rotates slower than the other...and even then it just forces the tire to lose traction with the road surface. I mean, I get why you wouldnt want to keep a locker engaged all the time...because it reduces turning radius and such...but it wouldnt be detrimental if your locker engaged at 65 on the freeway...right?

    I'm not sure the locker would like it if it was being engaged at 70mph. Also, the freeway isn't always straight. I was referring mainly to the speed and having to make a turn into a bend. It makes steering difficult and you can break something.

    Yeah, you usually want to engage the locker at low speed

    why would you want your locker engaged on the freeway at 65+ mph? I believe you live in socal...so ...no real benefit?
    just wondering why..

    I don't think he said he wanted to, just that it wouldn't be a big deal if it happened accidentally.

    You'd have to be a dumbass to engage an ARB accidentally.

    There's two switches to turn on. One for the compressor and one for the actual locker relay.

    Why don't you read the whole thread before calling someone a dumbass, DUMBASS :smack:

    His question stemmed from a misunderstanding of how the unit worked, thinking that a failure in the compressor/ air line would cause the locker to engage.
