What Locker have you fitted? Any feedback, pros & cons?

As the title said I'm after some feed back from anyone who has fitted lockers to there 200 series I'm after some options before I go out and buy. Detroit lockers seem to be getting some good feed back what have you got.

If your going to shell out for a detroit you might as well pay the extra $$ for a selectable locker! Personally I like the e-lockers (no experience just dont like air).

I've seen the E lockers advertised I'm keen on any feed back from anyone who's running them they seem like a great idea. I've been running ARB air lockers in my Patrol for the last 7 years in a very harsh climate and with frequent use and they have been pretty much trouble free besides the odd solenoid etc but as I said I'm open to other makes as there seems to be a few out there now days.

^^ I tried one, worked OK, but not as good as a proper Detroit - the Detroits are just there and just work, all the time, no hassles, no fuss, no need ever to switch anything on or off so therefore not even a chance of any issues with that! ;)

Cheers for the feed back Pete the Detroit system seems to be the goods the problem now is finding some one reputable to do the install there's so many cowboys out there.

There was one OL store in WA doing some really good stuff with them, can't recall which one of (the many) atm, but they are all here (I think?) http://www.oppositelock.com.au/index.ph ... name=state

If you do decide to go selectable, I reckon they can do E-Lockers too - but for my 2 bob (again.....) why would you? ;)

ARB front and rear. Worked faultlessly so far and are just fantastic.

Just a quick question, once you fitted the lockers do you notice much difference in drivability on minor off road stuff considering it now has open diffs.
