Locker Options

Hi,

I've been researching locker option for my 2013 express with GM 14 bolt. It has the factory G80, but i'm getting it re-geared for the larger wheels(4x4). Thinking of throwing in a Air locker while I'm at it.

My research says its a 30 spline with 10.5 ring gear and ARB RD114 should work on mine. However per amazon's vehicle compatibility logic it is not compatible with my van.

Any one on here knows which of the ARB locker will work on mine?

Thanks

Do not put any faith in Amazon compatibility garbage and I have found it to be wrong on several items.

While Iím a big fan of the ARB lockers, I run them front and rear on my wheeling truck, Iíd go with the Eaton true trac. I bought one for my 2016 van just havenít put it in yet.

The 3500 should have the 11.5" 14 bolt. The one I just bought does.

The 10.5" 14bff will have a ring of bolts around the pinion yoke, owing to having a separable pinion bearing carrier.

The 11.5" is used in 1 ton vehicles and does not have the separable pinion bearing carrier, which means there will not be a ring of bolts around the pinion yoke.

My 3500 van has the 10.5" 14 bolt GM has used forever with the bolt in pinion. I thought only the pickup trucks got the 11.5"

Yours is a '16? Gas or Diesel?

Mine is a 2006 Diesel Extended.
