    I'm happy when the 43's but think I would be equally happy with the 63's. If your after a little bit more the 43's will do the job fine, 63's will really crawl if that's what your into. Reckon you'd be happy with 43s. .

    Thanks Rossco, appreciate your comments mate.
    Just have to work out the locker type_ARB air locker does appeal. Did see the US made OX locker (mechanical engagement, do like their use of a cable and in-cab lever for engagement (thinking though not available for Nissan Patrol). Have sent them an email will see what they say.

    Edit: Have just received email back from OX Locker (OX_USA) and advise that:
    "We do not make one for the Nissan’s at all".
    Pitty that_will move on deciding.

    While you're deciding, could someone please explain which ARB seals fail and allow diff fumes to enter the cabin? And is there a an easy fix, or have they dealt with that issue?

    The only way I could imagine diff fumes ‘constantly’ entering the cabin Muddy Mate would be through a jammed open locker solenoid if they’re installed in doors. I prefer them safely inside anyway and will always get the slightest wiff selecting on/off/on around hairpin climbing hills. One could always take the solenoid exhaust diffusers out and pipe exhaust them outside too whilst maintaining all the good bits solenoid/compressor safely indoors. To be honest hasn’t bothered me yet, most times when the lockers are on I have my head half out the window choosing rock lines slowly crawling and the Chev’s diesel incoming exhaust window fumes are much more of a problem

    Yes my solenoids are in the cab and when ARB installed it they vented them outside.

    Another peace of mind factor keeping all the good bits safely indoors is the audible tell tales that everything is working as it should under extreme much needed circumstances.
    An example of this is if your compressor is kicking in too often you’ve sprung a slight leak somewhere out there. If your compressor is running full time then you’ve accidentally ripped a line clean off.
    The solenoid/s (plural for twin lockers) have a very distinct sound when they’re exhausting properly or not.
    Prior to installing a moisture remover/capture thingy in my main air system line prior to the 20L under tray air tank I was getting locker solenoids freezing shut on snow trips, well worth installing a good one of them for sure

    You installing @MB - need my tap for the diff fitting? Watch out for the location, sure you won't get caught twice?. Sing out if you need it. Is this for front or rear?
