I'm looking for a front locker. Can anybody recomend one. I'm looking for an ARB but if there is one better without the leaking line let me know.

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.
