What I’m curious to know is if the locker can be easily hooked up to an aux switch.
Yes! You can bypass our switch harness an connect directly to the factory aux switches.

The world’s premier traction aid for the Ford Bronco is here. ARB is proud to introduce the Air Locker for the M220 rear axle.

Providing instant grip at the flip of a switch by preventing the internal differential gears from rotating and therefore preventing the axle shafts from spinning independently of each other. Without it, the factory open differential only sends power to the tire without traction; but in reality, the tire that needs power is the one that has traction. This system is great for on-road driving but disastrous when off-road, making the selectable locking differential the ideal choice for most four-wheelers.

Why Air Locker?

The original Air Locker was developed in the 1980s. This design featured a three-piece case with an air actuated cast piston. A true, revolutionary piece of 4WD equipment for its time.

But as time has passed, the sport of off-roading has evolved exponentially. Large tires and engines in that era do not compare to what is being used today. 37” and 40” tall tires have become the popular choice. V8 engine swaps outputting over 500 horsepower are no longer few and far between.

To get ahead of the curve, ARB’s team of engineers were tasked with developing an Air Locker that would hold up to the future of four wheeling. The research and development consisted of many torque and failure tests on the Air Locker and other lockers. At the beginning of the 21st century, the new and improved Air Locker was released. It featured a two-piece design, less internal parts, forged gears, and a patented timed locking system; all of which make it the world’s strongest locking differential.

Its limits have been put to the test, not only surviving but also winning multiple Ultra4 off-road races where drivers run 43” tall tires and 1000+ HP.

Many of our competitors still use the old three-piece case design that we manufactured in the 19th century.

PxpJQXsibWBTJSdL7qWaicHeHz3Ou4lbfpXYSTONgjjhgC1viX.jpg

KEY FEATURES
  • Provides 100 percent traction on demand without affecting on-road drivability or driveline wear
  • Easy, convenient operation allows the user to concentrate on the terrain without leaving the comfort and safety of the driver’s seat
  • Two-piece design is ultra-durable and extremely strong – minimal moving parts, thereby ensuring maximum reliability
  • Patented ‘timed’ locking mechanism offers high strength and ultra-fast unlocking
  • Steel reinforced, elastomer bonded annular seal designed to handle the most extreme climatic temperatures
  • Includes: Air Locker differential, activation switch, solenoid valve, airline and bulkhead fitting
  • Race proven technology
  • Manufactured in Australia
  • Air compressor required for operation and optional tire inflation (sold separately)

This would be HUGE after buying your dual air compresor a few weeks ago. Fingers crossed.

Will this work in the axle that comes on the non-squatch base model?

Eta: Just saw your post above. Great that there is an option without having to swap axles now!

Glad you guys are realizing there are a lot of Bronco owners searching for a lot of options they couldn’t get from the factory or didn’t want to wait years for.
