It's funny that most don't realize that a JK/JL on 35's with lockers front and rear, along with a winch, will take you pretty much every place the average Jeep owner wants to go, and most likely even...

ARB all the way. Belt driven is more to go wrong. With the ARB you essentially have 2 compressors, 2 leads from the battery, 2 motors. Redundancy is key. ARB stands behind their product and has...
