Press this button. A light will blink on your instrument cluster until it engages. Once engaged, it will remain solid and say "RR DIFF LOCK" or something like that. Assuming you have a factory locker...If you don't have this button, then you don't have a locker unless you put an aftermarket one in.

Do you want it to be locked forever ? Or do you want the ability to choose ?

My cousin has a lockright in his Ranger. Basically, it engages on it's own when the tires are slippin, if I'm not mistaken.

Full time lockers disengage only when one tire needs to spin faster than the other (ie turning). I have an Aussie locker and love it. No backlash and such like you get with other lockers.

IIRC, the way that lockers like the Aussie work are whenever your throttle is open and power is going to the axle, the locker is engaged.

Whenever you're coasting and no power is going to the axle, the locker isn't engaged.



You'll be fine with an Aussie. The selectable feature might be nice, until your air line to the diff breaks or the compressor stops working right before you need to be locked.

IMO, ARBs aren't worth the 3x price tag over an Aussie.

Agree totally. I've ran lock-rights and aussies in everything I've owned. The ARB is too spendy and for me wasn't ever worth it.
