4wd locking

I know it's been cover probably a million times here but I will ask anyway. I have just bought a 2004 Columbia and I was wondering how long should it take to get the front and rear lock lights to show up in the dash?

Front Lock and Rear Lock lights are for the Rubicon editions only. Your Columbia edition does not have locking differentials. Only light that will come on is 4WD.

Interesting. I see the provisions in the dash and the owners manual says that thy should come on on page 170 of the owners manual letting you know when they are locked.

They can't be locked if you don't have them, sorry. If you want lockers you will have to add them yourself, or sell and buy a rubicon. I am sure that section of the manual is only for vehicles equip with the stated feature.

Yep only Rubicons come with lockers, sorry. Air your tires down for the beach, 11-13 psi will be good, and don't use your brakes to come to a stop on soft sand. Using brakes to stop on soft sand can form a berm in front of the tires and make it difficult to start moving again... often resulting in digging in and getting stuck.

I appreciate that! Last vehicle I had on the sand was my Comanche and that thing can go anywhere.
