Not a Patrol (but still a Nissan) and not exactly flex, but.....

4x4 People generally do not like LSDiffs, but this Terrano had one front and rear, and by operating the foot brake to induce locking the LSD's up, it was nearly as good a locked diffs on dirt and the rear one was a dream on tar, could get two black stripes on tar in anger....

Here you can see the airborne front wheel is not spinning wildly. It is locked and turning slowly, as is the wheel on the ground.

If you can't keep your wheels on the ground with flex, then lock your diffs to retain traction and momentum.....
