It would be a waste regarding wear and tear to use such a large compressor for air lockers. The air lockers just need a small burst of air every now and then to lock. I wouldn't want such and expensive compressor to be left on all day just for these small needs for air. It seems like you would wear out the compressor faster doing it this way.
I suggest installing a small compressor just for the lockers. Save the twin for the end of the day when you air up.
I was running the twin on a previous Jeep, it was my only compressor. It was a hot day, and the compressor failed in the middle of a hard trail. So I didn't have lockers for the rest of the day, had to get a tug on many obstacles. Also had to borrow a compressor from someone else to air up at the end of the day.
It was still under warranty at the time and was fixed for free. Though it took them two months to get it back to me.
On my current Jeep, I'm running a small ARB for the lockers. I have a separate larger compressor (not ARB) for airing up.
I've always used my dual ARB for the lockers and air, until recently.
I added the below compressor for only the lockers.
