I can see both sides of the opinions on ARB and other air lockers. They are certainly good lockers and work well, but the added complexity gives more potential failure modes. That's how it goes with everything, that's why the KISS theory is so popular. I've never seen an actual ARB locker itself fail, but I did see a compressor issue or two and LOTS of issues due to poor airline routing. Do it right and maintain it well and you'll probably be ok.
No, a grizzly is similar to a Detroit.
