ARB lockers for my 130

I've been putting it off for a while now coz I'm a cheap bastard.. Getting to the point of putting lockers in the differentials of my 130, the 130 is supposed to have a p38 style rear diff, anyone have any suggestions on what upgrades should be made to the diffs at the same time as the arb air locker install..??

'Twere it me, I'd be looking for a set of Dana axles for that monster.
Dodge Ram 250 from the 1990s has pretty much what you want. Dana 60 HD front and 70 rear with 3.54 R&P. You need the rear disc conversion and have them narrowed. Any axle shop can do that fairly reasonably.

If you do stay with the P38, than an Ashcroft locker is better than an ARB, with a set of shafts and flanges.

But, yes, better to swap in a Salisbury, put in a locker and shafts.

While the Salisbury diff is nice..should you have a problem on the trail or road it's MUCH easier to find a drop in replacement and much easier to do if it's a rover style... Also the sals and Dana diffs hang much lower and limit ground clearance..

But it is NOT Rover. It is P38. Rare.

The Salisbury is a Dana 60 and won't die, so it is a silly argument. If you are serious about talking running on trails, a P38 diff on a 130 is insane....

Uh, a "Rover" diff is Dana-Spicer.

Deja vu...

Dont do the Sals(unless youre putting a full ambulance body on the back with 2000lbs of gear shoved inside).

Do a RRC/Disco 1 style removable 3rd axle but go Ashcroft air locker AND gearsets!
Dont rely on the stock Rover 3:54s with that size truck.

Just my recent thoughts on axle planning.

Agree. I even consciously went with a rover rear axle on my 110 build so I could run a matching rear Ashcroft air locker. With Ashcroft 4.11s, HD shafts, disc brakes, and 110 calipers It'll be more than enough.

^^ Yep. ^^
If this were my pig of a truck on 35" tires, I'd go with Ashcroft lockers and the 4.14 gears and if you really want to get tough.... Get the the thrust pads for the ring gears.
And chromoly shafts, of course.
They're not going to break.

Hell, he's only going to cruise around the beach anyway...
