    Well, I'm having great difficulty justifying the expensive of an ARB for my 14BFF ... so I think a Detroit is the way to go. Looks like I can prolly muddle through and install it myself even.

    I refuse to deal with 4WPW :D

    Any recommends, therefore, on online or local-to-San-Francisco-ish retailers, who have a decent price on a Detroit? Also, seems like they have various flavours, soft lockers and whathaveyou ... any difference I should look for or avoid?

    Seems like 350-375 is the low price range for a Detroit. Search the forum, there are a few links.

    Ditto on PORC :D

    By far the best prices.I have bought ALOT of stuff from them and very happy with the service.

    One time there was a problem with one of my orders (not their fault) and he took care of me first,and dealt with the other vendor after the fact.

    Did you say ARB for a 14FF? Does ARB offer a Air locker for a 14? I would love for that to be true but i'm thinking dremu was thinking of some other diff.



    I do live under a rock so maybe something new has came out! :)





    I bought a new Detroit Locker on ebay for 225 bucks, you have to watch but they are there! The add called it "a limited-slip for a truck" I love when people don't know what they are selling :grin:.

    Yes ARB has come out w/ a air locker for the 14ff, it is there newest product. But as you can emagine it will not be cheap. So I am just going to keep looking for a detriot.
