Also, being the factory locking system is an electric air actuated what is the better choice, arb air locker or eaton electric locker? What advice can u give. Thank you

sleeve it! arb is about the strongest you will find. the rubicon air system will not run an arb though. factory air pump is 3 to 5 psi. arb takes way more than that. g2 axles are ok. not surerior evo stuff, but decent.

Is the factory locker a locker I should reuse in a new housing 44 or the G2 with arb is the way to go. Is the factory locker a strong locker or weak compared to arb? this is a 03' rubicon.
G2 is runnin a deal through 4wheel parts $200 off. I can get axle with arb locker for $2600. So what do I have to do to run the arb system? Am I able to retain the factory toggle switch which controls the front locker? Install an arb compressor and wire it to the factory toggle?
