Thanks for the advice and doing your part for our country. I never served in the military, but I think if I had I would have retired there. I've seen my share of death and destruction and lost friends in the line of service. I've been lucky, but always say more lucky than good. Thanks again for the service and advice. I wish you well recovering.

Btw....you have 10 more years to go... What agency do you work for. I retired as a Major with Greenville County Sheriff's Office, SC. I teach criminal justice at a university now and I love the summers off.

Thanks for that info. Yet another thing to put on the list! I actually wanted to get an onboard compressor but more for the easy access for tire inflation and other small uses.

2nd question if you don't mind. How are you with the stock alternators? Have you found a need to upgrade? I was thinking it might be something to consider with winches and extra lights.
Allriverssouth wrote on Ravenmad's profile.
Ive been reading over your Ram Build and I'm quite impressed. The first time I saw an AEV Prospector was in 2016 at Overland East. I think its what convinced me to go Diesel with this build in mind. While I've had to scale back my original project I did notice a couple of items on your build that I wanted to ask about.

The first is the ARB air lockers. Do the ARB lockers really make that much difference?
Thanks for reaching out. I REALLY wanted the AEV. If you get a chance take a look at the Road Armor bumper. I responded to you and a couple of others on the thread and I left a link. I pulled the trigger on it a few nights ago because it was on sale and had free shipping. However its on back order. Its not the AEV but it looks pretty beefy and may have a little more protection for the intercooler.
