Just a passing thought/observation that maybe someone can enlighten me on.
I've got a whole whack of 4wd Action DVD's that a mate sends me from Australia. He subscribes to the magazine and he gets a free DVD with each issue that he sends once a year to me (what a legend
I keep noticing that all of the Oz Patrols only have an LSD in the rear diffs.
In SA, as far as I know, we got an electronic diff lock as standard.
Any idea why that is ?
Doesn't make sense to me that the manufacturer would put an LSD instead of an E-locker from the factory
I've also noticed that a lot of other vehicles in Oz either come with an LSD or with no diff locks at all. Strange.
If you see how these guys in Oz modify their 4x4's, your jaw will drop.
One guy featured on a 'readers rides' segment runs a 2001 GU 4.2 turbo diesel UTE with coils in the rear and about 230kW at the rear wheels
Another thing I picked up (on a side note) is the Ozzie guys don't really support ARB products like we do.
The only ARB accessory you'll see on some of the vehicles will be a winch bar and that's it.They tend to lean towards :
Air compressors - Thumper
Diff locks - Harrop E-locker
HID spots - Lightforce or Narva
Winches - Runva or Warn
