well guys i trashed my ring and pinion on my OX locked Dana 30 at crab tree falls VA on sunday. Instead of fixing it and chancing it to break again i bit the bullet and ordered a dynatrac pro rock 44. Arb locker, rvc axles, 4.88s and synergy ball joints. My question is i understand ill have to get a arb compressor for the locker, but how exactly does that work? Is there a switch that you have just for the compressor and then a seperate switch for the locker? Once locked do you have to keep the compressor on? Any input would be awesome:beer:

The compressor feeds about 100psi constant to the locker. It's what keeps it locked. When pressure is removed, the locker unlocks.

Your PR should come with a rocker switch, air tubing, and solenoid for the locker. The compressor itself will come with the compressor switch and wiring harness. The ARB compressor harness works by staging the swtiches. The compressor switch activates the compresser (which has an auto cutoff), and "turns on" the primary switch. If you only have a front locker, the front switch is primary. If you have front and rear ARB, rear is primary. Flip the primary swith and it turns on the secondary....

If you don't want to deal with the shit ton of wiring and potential electrical failures, you can use mechanical valves off the small tank on the compressor.

Ok i think i understand what your saying, and i will only be running ARB in the front. So your saying that would be just 1 rocker switch then? for turning the compressor on and off, which locks and unlocks the locker

2 rocker switches. One to turn on the compressor and 1 to activate the locker.

You flip the switch for the compressor and it will pressurize the tank. You then flip the locker switch to activate the locker.

The smallest arb compressor takes only a few seconds to fill

I would check with Eaton on that. We are not sure if they changed it or are in the process of changing it, but the 4 pinion and cross pin design should be a reality.
