What: ARB 2½-ton Rockwell Air Locker
About: After three years of development, ARB offers the baddest ARB Air Locker ever made. The RD145 Air Locker was designed for the storied 2½-ton Rockwell military axle, one of the strongest off-road axles available. Because most vehicles with 2½-ton Rockwells run a 44-inch or taller tire, turning has always been a major challenge, especially when an automatic locker was the only option. With the new RD145 ARB Air Locker, drivers now have the option to select either a locked or open diff to suit their needs and terrain all at the flick of a switch.
