Re: locking differentials

I also do not have first hand knowledge with it. I was just trying to recal what the other guy had said. Man I wish I could find it now! I just remember him saying that it wasn't as simple as applying voltage from a switch and having them lock.

This all makes me very happy that I jumped for the QD when I was buying! I hope there is a simple solution to this diff swap. Maybe if someone is able to make it work by a flip of a switch then I can disconnect my diffs from the computer, reprogram to QT, and have lockers at the flip of a switch! That would be nice.

As for the ESP, that is why I believe there were different systems. Because I can be off road with the ESP on and punch it and it feels like I just sucked up a diaper. But I can turn it off then punch it and I can roost and drive like an idiot to my hearts content.

Re: locking differentials

Just an FYI.
You can install QDII axles so they work just like stock if you have a WK or XK.

Re: locking differentials

I'm curious. If you have QDII, why would you want to go to strictly manual control?

I've had QTII and then QDII. I like the integration. I've done quite a bit of 4x4 in the mountains (I'm sure you do too) and it works very well.

Re: locking differentials

Yes I agree it works very well and I love having it! But I would also love to have full control of the diffs. Just to be able to turn them on and off whenever I want would be nice. They do a decent job of slipping while taking tight turns in 4Lo, but sometimes I would just like to be able to turn them off, take the turn as sharp as possible, and then turn them back on. Maybe it is just me

i AGREE and thats what i was leaning towards in my OP. Back when things weren't so computer controlled lockers were easily installed and could be engaged either from the hubs or a switch in the vehicle. I love my QTII but im aware of the additional traction lockers give ... but i agree with Omelet... if i were to have diff lockers, i think i'd want to be able to control if i want them engaged or disengaged even out of the 4lo range... either way, im happy with my QTII so far and def dont do serious enough off roading to require full lockers haha

Hey that's why these forums are here, we can all learn from each other. I've been working on those wretched POS HMMWV's since 97' and I share when I can.

Re: locking differentials

I did not knew that my jeep had some kind of lockers, good to know.
In my experience, I used to have a Chevy blazer 4x2 and when I encounter a big mud hole and have no choice but to enter it I used the hand Breaks and the trotle to try to pass, sometimes it worked sometimes it did not. Sometimes I gave my friend the wheel and step on the back of the suv and jump and it would help to jajajajaja guessing my 300+ ponds of weight gave a little traction to the rear wheels. You got to have skills and know your vehicle but sometimes I you donīt have the best equipment you have to be creative and a little crazy to go places with no roads at all.
