That is a feature that doesn't make sense to me. On my f150 I can lock the rear diff in 2wd if I want. I wonder why Nissan does this? I think the power wagon is the same way.Locker didn't help there but I was stuck in a different spot and locked it in and she crawled out just wish you could engage it in 4hi 4lo got so much torque u break wheels loose and it sinks
I would assume the idea is that people aren't running around locked.Makes no sense to me and yes powerwagon and jeep rubicon I had a rubicon and believe it also had be in 4lo
well if its nissan logic they call it a LSD via the ABLS or whatever, but in reality its an open diff. one tire fire all day.Is the rear diff open or LSD?
exactly. like doing u turns on dry pavement in 4wd....bye bye front tiresI would assume the idea is that people aren't running around locked.
If one were to lock the rear diff and be driving around every day, about the first time it rains or snows and is even slightly slick, they go around a corner locked and they're going for a ride. And also locked on dry pavement puts a lot of wear on them and chatters and such around corners. So restrict locking to 4-lo makes sense.
I could see times where it would be beneficial to be able to lock in 4-hi though.
No, they don't release, hence the name locker. If you've ever tried to turn while backing you would know that. Maybe you're calling a LSD a locker.Ya I would think there is a simple mod to change the locker to go in while 4 hi and even 2wd.
Also 99% of lockers do release while turning to keep windup down so daily driving on it is not the end of the world... Unless you buy a lock right lol those never worked properly cheap 2 spring design.
My crawler(87 4runner) had Detroits front and rear on 37s and I never had an issue with the rear end it was fully locked in 2wd.
DUDE your Nuts! Go learn something... A Locker will unlock while turning to keep drive line windup down.... If they dont unlock they will detonate and take everything out there Designed to unlock, than they lock back up when your going straight again.No, they don't release, hence the name locker.

While I don't always agree with Scorpian, I must agree this time.DUDE your Nuts! Go learn something... A Locker will unlock while turning to keep drive line windup down....

The Detroit Locker is a 100%-automatic locking differential that provides ultimate traction for mild to extreme vehicle applications. Its unique, bullet-proof design is engineered to keep both wheels in drive mode - even is one wheel is lifted off the ground.
During straight-line driving, the Detroit Locker captures 100% of available torque and sends it equally to both wheels. In turns and maneuvers, the internal components unlock to allow one wheel to spin faster or slower as necessary (free wheel). When the vehicle returns to a straight-line driving path, the components re-engage and provide power to both wheel ends.
Going in Reverse doesnt change a **** thing.
If you have a SPOOL or a Welded Rear end yea they stay locked 100% and do not unlock and your tirse chirp around corners.
Go youtube something so you can learn... seriously !!
