Anyone running an ARB Airlocker?

I have read in the Ford magazines about the ARB Airlocker a while ago.
I haven't heard about it lately. Anyone running one :?:

Yeah, the ARB is the BEST locker out there. THe pump makes some noise, but is not bad. They offer 31 spline & the thing is a brute. Also, if you break it, ARB stands behind it, unlike the Detroit Locker. I ran it in my rock crawler, never a problem, a buddy runs it in an 11 sec twin turbo stang, never a problem. If a spool is out of the question, the ARB is a great choice.

That said, I am running an ECTED by Auburn in my Mustang. Same thing, but electric powered. They only ofer it for the 8.8 though, so a 9" is out of the question.

I am pretty sure a built 8.8 would also do the trick. I lost 75 LBS by swapping out the Versailles 9" for a built 8.8 with Wilwood disks. I had the tubes welded & used a rear girdle cover.
