If anybody from ARB is listening, this comment is so full of shit it’s no wonder your product stinks.
Prior to this I have often recommended Air Lockers to some four-wheelers, Detroits to some,
Lock-Rights to some, and so on. At this point I’m hesitant to recommend a product that is being sold by spreading paranoid bullshit.
I don’t have just one truck with a locker in the front, I’ve had several and am getting ready to
build two more. Detroit Lockers.
From the novice driver standpoint I’d agree that they can cause lessened steering, and an
occasional tendency to plow, but extreme difficulties is pure unmitigated bullshit. Unless you run them on pavement in which case at least a Detroit allows an axle to overrun, a condition the Air Locker is incapable of, which several cases of axle breakage I’ve witnessed with Air Lockers might be able
to be attributed to.
What pure ARB Air Locker crap.
