    Sorry, me again...
    Does it work without changing the original axles? In Europe everything is regulated by the goverments, and if you change something on the suspension / transmission you need to redo all the certification....
    Thanks and regards from Italy!

    The only external difference will be a thin air line going to the differential housing, otherwise the axle will be identical. I doubt a Ministry of Transport inspector will even know it is an aftermarket diff lock, all European military vehicles that are worth anything have them from the factory. It is really quite shocking that the FMTV did NOT come with them!
    Which part of Italy are you from? I was in Venezia Mestre/Veneto with my Unimog camper in June.

    Hello Charlie.
    I live in the north of Italy, in the middle of the Dolomites, near Bolzano. About 300 km from Venice. I bought a M1078 a couple of weeks ago, now waiting for inspection. Italy is a nightmare for trucks. I bought mine in Germany, trying to convert it to a motorhome...
    I know it's far early to discuss, and I'm a complete greenhorn about this type of truck. Do I need to change the axle ratio between front and rear? I think my truck is quite default, without modifications. And I don't want to start my adventure by changing half of the transmission
    If it's quite easy to install the arb locker than I will take 1, otherwise if it's necessary to change axle ratio, or the hole axle than I will let it be...
    Thanks and sorry for my bad english...
    Christian

Many will be 'interested' until time to send the cash, then the organizer is stuck with the shortfall. Been there, done that.

    Mister Organizer, just watch your wallet!
    Yup, I ran that AVM locking hub group buy. Thankfully we got through it without anyone getting affected negatively.

    Who's going to be holding the money? How is transparency being provided? (I did a spreadsheet on google docs with who was in and what they paid) Who's on the hook when things go south?

    If we can actually get 50 lockers spoken for here then Carl at Nitro Gear and Axle would handle everything, I am just doing the foot work so we can get ARB to produce the parts we need, I spoke with ARB and they will design and manufacture the lockers just for us, but we need 50 lockers to make it happen, This all will be ran through Nitro Gear as ARB will only work with one of their official ARB dealers, Carl has the resources to get all of this handled properly.

    I hope that answers everyones questions
    Cheers Seth
