ARB Differential Lockers

Does anyone know where to get ARB diff lockers set up in NYC? I have the set up in my rear differential but my compressor is not set up.

What exactly do you need done? Do you need the locker installed into the diff carrier or is everything plumbed up and you just need the compressor wired up? What about the switches? are they installed already?

I need the switches and compressor installed. All that is installed are the ARB in the differential. Everything else needs to be installed. Thanks

When you say the diff is installed, I'm going to assume whoever installed it also drilled the housing and ran the blue airline? If so, where does the other end of the line dead end? I'm sure there is going to be a lot of opinions on this but where do you want the compressor to sit? I have it under the passenger seat.

Long story short, as ini88 suggested, it's not that difficult but time consuming. There is nobody in the city that I've used before but if you tell them exactly what you want, you could probably take it to the dealer worse comes to worse. Tell them where you want the switches and where you want the compressor and you'd probably be fine. If not, I know a few guys in Jersey that could do it or my race shop in Nyack, NY (25 miles out of the city) could do it. They could use my truck as a template.

Cool. Please Pm me the address.

The lines in my truck is not set up. I brought the 300tdi rear axel from a mate who had the ARB front and rear diff locks. He sold me the rear. The's no line set up. I have the compressor and I would like it under my passenger seat next to the battery. I'm looking for the connectors and lines. I have the blue lines in a box but I would like something stronger. I'm planning to get the MUD UK centre console. When I get it I would like the 2 switches installed there. In the future, I'm planning to get Detroit TRUTRAX (unsure of the spelling) installed in the front. I didn't want air lockers on both diff.

If you already have compressor and other bits, why wouldn't you want an ARB up front as well?

It is better to have 1 diff that us mechanical and the other that are air lockers. I feel that if you have a hole in the line or compressor failure, you would still be able to get out of whatever you're into. If both lockers are down, you're screwed.

keep in mind that you will be driving a truck with an "automatic" locker in the front and selectable in the rear. In certain driving conditions, particularly on the highway in snow, this could lead to some unpredictable situations.

That aside, the air lines are fairly simple to do a trailside/roadside repair on with quick connect fittings. If you are truly that worried about the air lines several companies offer SS line kits or you can put the blue line inside heater hose or similar.

Good advice.

With TruTrack, You haver to step on the brakes several times ti engage them. For example, mash 3 quick times and they are engaged-mash 2 X and they are disengaged.
