Default arb locker & atrac

So with the arb lockers, when unlocked would the vehicle behave as it currently does with atrac, vsc, etc? (or just atrac with the center locked)

That would provide a true test & comparo between atrac and full lockers.

Gosh, 3 full lockers - thats a pretty elite club.

Adding an ARB klocker will no affect the ATRAC system. Teh axle will just get locked, which means ATRAC is no longer needed on the axle as both wheels will spin at the same speed.

However I would recommend that you lock the center diff before lockeing an axle to disable VSC. You dont want tht eVSC braking just one wheel on a locked axle, that would just put uneeded stress on the axle itself. However you should not lock an axle at speeds where VSC will actually kick in, and in low speed low traction stuff it is better to lock the center diff anyway.

Excellent point...make sure the center diff is locked before locking either axle, and no worries about vsc. Then when locked, atrac should never kick in b/c of constant speed. That is just perfect. Wow, I can't imagine what a tank that would create!
