When you need the extra traction, simply turn on your compressor, approach the difficult terrain, take your foot off of the accelerator and press the Air Locker switch – even if you are still moving.

How do you install a ARB solenoid?

How to connect your ARB Manifold?

  1. Connect air locker air line to “push to connect fitting” on the solenoid.
  2. Connect switch Pros Quick Connect harness to ARB air locker clip.
  3. Connect steel braided air line from the manifold to air compressor.

Are lockers hard to install?

Yes they are easy to put in. The lunchbox type just install in your factory open carrier and replaces the spider gears. The full case lockers replace your stock carrier and you will have to reset your backlash to its current setting. This requires a shim kit and a dial indicator with a magnetic base.

What’s better air locker or e locker?

E-lockers, on the other hand, use an electromagnet to convert the differential into a spool. Inside an e-locker, you’ll find that the magnet pulls two roller cams apart. While this is an advantage over air lockers (which need both the 12-volt and the compressor), e-lockers rely on roller cams for engagement.

How fast can you go with air lockers?

An ARB Air Locker can be engaged at any speed as long as both wheels are spinning at the same rate. If one wheel is spinning faster than the other, what is called “crash locking” will occur and can cause damage to the internal gears.

How does an ARB Air Locker work?

The ARB Air Locker uses a small charge of air from an on board air compressor that in turn activates the locker. When activated, both axle shafts are locked together into the equivalent of a spool providing 100% equal traction to both wheels of that axle with no differential of speed between the wheels of that axle.

Which Locker is best?

Are ARB air lockers reliable?

ARB air lockers have proven to be strong, reliable, and quick to actuate on demand. We have used a number of them over the years with great success. Generally, the seals that contain the locking air pressure inside will last many, many years.

Do you need solenoid to install ARB air locker manifold?

This manifold and solenoid install assumes your air locker and air compressor have already been installed. If you want to see a step-by-step install on the compressor check that out here. This install assumes your ARB front or rear locker air lines are already connected to your lockers waiting to be connected to the solenoid (s).

How to connect ARB air locker to compressor?

For triggering the air locker and our ARB compressor, we are using the Switch-Pros 9100 Quick Connect harness specifically designed for the ARB compressor. This allows you to connect each line straight to one switch; two locker wires and one power wire for the compressor.

Where are the switch clips on an ARB compressor?

Locker Switch Clips: If you are running the ARB twin compressor then you likely have two switch clips (front and rear locker) running along the provided ARB compressor harness. These would have been provided with your ARB twin compressor kit.

Why do you need an air locker in a 4Runner?

Air lockers replace the existing differential that our 4Runner came equipped with. The main goal of an air locker is to offer enhanced traction offroad by locking the differential, forcing both axles to rotate at the same speed. They are also stronger than our factory differential which generally speaking, reduces stress on the driveline.
