Diff lock override actuator (“anytime diff lock”)

Post by Davros »

Hi All,
Why does the Dmax/BT50 diff lock only work in low range? My Ranger’s diff lock worked in high range and it was very handy to activate it then get going. From memory it disengaged at higher speeds once you were “off and running”.
Has anyone installed the “anytime diff lock” kit? Does it greatly risk the destruction of the Isuzu diff?
It’s annoying to think that as standard it can’t be activated in high range with the Isuzu, for use at speed on loose sand…

You certainly don’t need a rear diff lock “at speed on loose sand”. That is a poor driving technique. Correct tyre pressures are a far better option. The mall crawlers only need anytime diff lock for their burnouts 😂😂

Not if you need to start in a crap situation then build up to high speed, dropping it out without having to slow once you have enough momentum, and wanting to move into high range speeds. Used to use the Ranger one for that going from an “egg timer sand” beach then up a sand track that gradually got firmer. Speed was the best eventual option, but starting was the issue. Diss lock most of the way was great. Anyway - why does the Ranger let you do it and not Isuzu or Hilux? Are the Isuzu and Hilux systems weaker?
