ARB Air Lockers

I'm considering putting arb's in both my axles because I'm sick of getting stuck and not being able to spin all four tires.. has anyone used/installed these and have anything to say about them as far as how well they work/reliability and also how hard they are going to be to install.
Thanks

yeah, this winter has put me over the edge. I have the LSD in the back but it really sucks. I've gotten stuck multiple times now on my driveway in VT trying to tow my 20' sled trailer up and I always end up with opposite corners spinning...

That was installed and included tax. the lockers were something like 800 each. They wanted 300 per to install. I already have air on the truck so no compressor. I wish I knew how to install these. Never opened a pumpkin before...

i would get a lockright for the rear cause you don't need to spend that much on an ARB for the rear on a truck like this and put the ARB up front for the street use
