    By the end of the month I'm putting in a rear ARB locker (well not me, but I'll pay someone or a shop). I'll have the compressor installed and ready to go, just need a reference to someone or a shop that's reputable and has done some locker and gear installs before. Let me know, any info or references are appreciated.

    Just buy a center from east coast gear supply or marlin crawler.
    If your capable enough to install the compressor I'm sure u can install a 3rd.
    And run the air line.

    Ecgs and marlin do not charge setup labor.
    Vs paying a shop to install the locker in your dif.
    Cost wise its almost a wash.
    My rear from marlin was $1600 -$300 I'm gonna sell my old diff for=$1300
    Vs $1200 for an arb installed in my diff.
    If that makes since.
    And for the $1200 I was going to have to pull and install the center anyways.

    How much did they charge you? Did they do both the locker and compressor?

    They’re getting back to me on a quote.

    Well my truck is a different vintage then yours.
    I'm just letting you know there may be better options.
    Because they include the labor for free so it offets the fact your actually buying more parts.

    I’m thinking of doing it myself, really if they’re going to charge me $1000+

    Well I found a local place in Collegeville PA that quoted me $750. Also, they’re not sure they can guarantee the work since I’m providing the locker (new).

    If they’re not guaranteeing the labor at least, I’ll keep looking or do it myself.
