ARB Air Lockers

Mon May 05, 2003 11:43 pm

Hey guys this is the deal.

Going to start to slowly rebuild my 81 Ford F-150.

It has most of the features that I want in a pickup, 300 Straight Six, C-6 Tranny. 8 Foot bed and Dual tanks. It is only a 2 wheel drive but I don't run the Sahara or the swaps with the thing.

Anway the one problem that I really do have with the truck is the differential. Is is a standard 9 inch Ford rear, which I don't mind, but it is just a normal differential. And as anybody who has seen the movie "My Cousin Vinnie" knows, in the mud, you step on the gas and one side spins while the other side does nothing.

Anyway Toying with the idea of putting a limited slip differential in it and then I did a search for air lockers. Came up with ARB's site and some other truck sites that seem generally positive.

Does anybody have any experiences with these lockers in their rigs?

And does anybody have any thoughts on the whole idea of throwing an Air Locker into a 2WD?
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
