    Search.

    The rear locker locks both wheels so that they both receive power no matter what.

    Is the locking rear diff for getting out of a bad stuck spot? It seems to me that you wouldn't drive (even on dirt) with the diff locked.

    The diff lock for off roading only. NEVER engage it on pavement.
