Well, I've been searching for weeks now and trying to get together all the parts and accessories on paper needed for the ARB Air Locker. I found a place I can purchase the locker from for $800, no tax, no shipping, and thats the cheapest I have found.
I know that I need an air compressor to activate the locker, but my question is do I need an air tank also or does the locker work just with the compressor? If it just runs off the compressor will the compressor be running all the time while the locker is engaged?
I was looking on ARB's website and they said, "Installation should be performed by a qualified differential technician, although no special tools or skills are required apart from those necessary for fitting a standard differential." This makes me think I can install this myself since I installed my Powertrax No-Slip, or am I looking at a more complicated install then the No-Slip? I've read that bring your truck to a shop for them to install will cost somewhere around $300 depending on how much work your do yourself. I was thinking if I cannot install it myself, what if I do most of the work; removing the 3rd member and possibly more if I can. Will this cut down on cost? And does anyone no a good shop around the Bay Area or want to help me?
Another thing, where do you drill the hole for the air line, in the Diff. or in the 3rd member? I can't remember what Herb's ARB set-up looked like I was too busy envying the rest of his truck Anyways thanks for the time to read this I know its long, but I want to get it right the first time, and thanks for the replies!
