H3 Tube Fenders and front locker... options?

We traded our '06 base for an '07 Adventure package Saturday and had it crawling rocks on Sunday.

My wife's new found love for the rear locker already has her salivating for a front one as well. Besides the $2k factory '09 diff, are there any other options? I can't seem to find any.

Also- front tube fenders. Anyone ever build a set? It looks like it could be done. We have built transfer case skid plates and a winch bumper for ours, I was thinking maybe tube fenders could work.

ARB is supposed to have an air locker for the front. It shows up on their International application guide, but not the one for US. And a quick search on the usual parts sites and nobody has anything listed. The OEM lockers are made by Eaton. The rear one you can buy from any parts house, not sure why you can't get the front yet.

As for the fenders, I've thought about it many times. But never seen anyone do it.

It has to do with the aperture settings

Looks photochopped to me. Good job on the filter though

Its been a while since I was in the H3 world but I think you would run into issues with the rear doors and tube fenders. Good luck with the project, I look forward to seeing the results.

I used a tool in photoshop that helps to highlight an object. I use it on about 10% of the pics I take. These two came out pretty good, so I posted them up.


I wouldn't do rear tube fenders, too complicated with the doors and such. The front is what I had in mind though. It would take some serious creativity, and I haven't seen anyone do it yet, so there may be a reason for that.

But we'll see.
