I love ARB's locker, but you are looking close to a grand for one with the compressor and such. Are Ox Lockers any good? I like the idea of the shift cable instead of an air compressor.

Here's a link to it if you don't know which one I'm talking about, although this place is a little pricey.

4WP is notoriously bad for customer service. I wouldn't give them an nickel of my money, especially on something this expensive and critical.

Now as far as the lockers, OX had trouble with the cable adjustment and getting it to operate successfully when you'd want it locked. I don't recall any issues with the lockers strength, just it's operation. The company has been sold a couple times in the recent past and has changed staff frequently as well. There was recently a guy on JU pushing the brand and their products, stating they're back....but he got shot down since then and I haven't seen him back on.

I've thought about them but only if I were to get a great (i.e free or extremely cheap) deal. I'd do it in exchange for a writeup or something.

my thought was the less moving parts the less that can mess up and keep the locker from engaging. Maybe I'll wait and see some reviews on them.
