ARB Air Lockers

When you’re up against a steep incline, tackling uneven and rocky terrain or a slippery mud track, being able to take advantage of traction is one of the most important elements of 4WD driving. Although your 4×4 is designed to receive power to all 4 wheels, it can only be delivered to two wheels at one time, unless you apply a differential lock. ARB has created one of the world’s best locking differentials, the ARB Air Locker. ARB Air Lockers are an Australian designed and manufactured selectable diff locker that can be activated at the flick of a switch at any speed.
