I've got an ARB in the front... and I've never had a problem with a leaking line...

I read about the hazards of drinking... so I quit reading...

Try the SS lines instead of the plastic one. More expensive but worth not worrying about leaks.
I have a rear ARB and havent had any porbs, however I do wish for SS lines when the time, uh money comes.

"Better" is a subjective thing...

Do you prefer an auto locker or selectable? Do you have ADD or not?

An auto locker like a Lock-right is cheaper and easier to install, but it causes increased wear with ADD, and can be a PITA offroad w/o twin sticks.

A selectable locker like an ARB is more expensive, harder to install, and requires a support system [i.e. air source], but arguably offers more flexibility offroad. BTW, it is not the hoses that leak, it is the O-ring on the slip collar.

Either way, make sure that you carry a spare CV shaft in your rig when on the trail; lockers of any type put more stress on the axleshafts.

Thanks for the information yall. Looks like an ARB for the front. That's what I had in mind but they are pricy. I rather pay extra for better equipment than to break later. I guess i better start looking for a CV shaft just in case.
