Locker debate

I got in a debate today with a friend over the best lockers. I feel that ARB's are the best because you can open your diff and leave it open. He says ARBs have lots of problems on the trail due to air lines, to many connections to get loose, etc. He believes something like a detroit or other limited slip is the way to go for durability. What do you think? What would be the ultimate set up for wheeling and driving on the road?

That is why it is called a short cut. If it was easy it would just be "the way."

For the average off-roader, a selectable locker is better IMO because you can try an obstacle on skill alone first. If that doesn't work, then you can lock it up and get over the obstacle.

If you do competitions, mudding or serious off-roading, a detroit or similar is probably better.
