    Did your rig come with OEM lockers? Or did you add lockers? Or, are you open?

    Was looking for one with lockers only, it was one of the conditions for me...

    Why? just because.

    We have 2 locked LX 450s :D

    When I was looking for mine, I wanted a locked 80 -- LC or LX didn't make a difference.

    I guess i shouldn't have used ARB for the poll, basically any locker addition will suffice.

    Purchased my w/o lockers. About a year later got the rear locker. Then I waited one more year to get the front.
    I took a while, but it was worth it.

    Regards

    94 locked for mall cruisin'.

    I will take it over once I put the wife in a 98-99, and sell the 60 I have know. Put my 94 on a gravel parking lot, engaged them both when I bought the rig in Feb., and it hasn't seen anything but pavement since. Just turned 90K.

    Bought locked and loaded in '94. Didn't really know what I had until this past few years. Guess I was lucky!

    Looks a redundant choice on the list. There should be no "Purchased truck without OEM lockers" choice if you have "+plan to install ARBs" and "+staying open" choices. Also, you didn't include a choice for retrofitting OEM lockers. Plus you have no choices for "open but plan to add lockers", only a choice for if lockers have already been installed. My choice is not on the list at all- "open but plan to install OEM lockers".

    If i would have done my homework before purchasing an 80, i would have limited it to locked only. I just didn't know. Those were the pre-mud days :)
