Hi,

I would be interested to know why, I don't think he has bought one from us to actually see first hand,

If you saw the 2 next to each other you would understand its a no brainier,

Better materials
Better design
No air leaks
No failures
Cheaper,

We see broken ARB's every week and the spares are usually a 12 week lead time from Australia and crazy expensive,

We still sell ARB's , approx one for every 90 of our lockers !

Good point, you would have to ask him. It is different here in the states however. They have less than a 1 week lead time, and the price is quite close when it comes down to them being at your door. We also have service locations in the states for ARB, whereas I'm not sure of any Ashcroft certified service centers(thought there may be).

I'm still confused over this whole "close service center" thing.... If they don't break, you don't need service. If they do break, Justin or Dave will get you fixed up fast....

Install is simple and no different than any other diff.
