is it for the front or the back? if it the back I'd run a detriot, if it the front I'd run the arb. The arb costs more and you need more stuff to make them work, i.e. air line, switch, compressor. Detriot you put in and go. The arb is nice cause yo can unlock and drive with an open diff. So each has its ups and down. But what do I know I have a spool in the back and a welded front:D

well I think that it will see alot of off road, like de-activated road, spring roads that the average guy would turn around and head away from. its going to be my bush truck, and the 4x4 it going to be use alot. The roads up here in the spring can be brutal.

If you like 4x4 in the mud come up here to the north in the spring, I am almost willing to put money down that you would get stuck, in a stock truck.

thanks again guys

go for the detroit. to much crap with the arb to fail, and it always seems to fail when you need it most. ask wasp how many times he has had to tinker with his.
