The jeep gods have smiled at me!!!

So my neighbor called, said he had a couple of diff covers he was going to throw in the trash and if I wanted them. So I headed over and was handed 2 boxes, the first labeled diff cover had 2 warn diff skid plates, the second box was a ARB locker box, it had a factory take off TJ rubi locker. I let him know what he had and asked how much he wanted for them...he said if I didn't take them, they are going in the trash. So I again asked how much he wanted for them, and again was told to take them I then called ARB and cross-referenced the ARB part number and it will fit with my TJ, I just need to use a factory compressor for the locker. Thank you jeep gods!!! anyone have a rubi locker compressor not being used?

You'll have to do some searching but I THINK the difference is that they operate at a much lesser psi. I bet with some internet searching you could find out how to run em with your OBA, CO2 tank or whatever air source you have. Heck ARB might even give ya the low down.

Is this the only hammer you've got?

Hosanna! You've been blessed!

A good regulator will take care of that, but it has to be a good one; many regulators won't do a very good job of regulating at that low pressure.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
