Question. Anyone know if the stock lockers and t case ect can handle up to 6th gear 4 low ? For say heavy snow conditions ect. And or. Is it hard on the lockers to stay locked up for a long time on a hard trail?
Some times my jeep will be locked in 4 low for hours at a time. If we are someplace that the trails are close to each other I just leave it in on the way to the next one. In 6'th low my low geared jeep will go about 20mph. Not sure how fast a jeep that is not geared so low would go, but I wouldn't have a problem running that fast as long as the road/trail allow it.Yella said:
I've been 25 in 4 low. I was on a bunch of trails that ran along/off of a logging road. The road was fine to do 25 but the trails were for slow travel. I didn't want to keep shifting in and out of 4low but it'll go 25 no problem. That's 6th gear at 2000-2500 rpm tho so it's probably not meant to drive long at that speed. I'd just go less than a quarter mile at a timeYella said:
Why dont you do the mod that makes it so you can run lockers in 4hi. I think superchips have a program as part of their tuner that makes it work. Or you could try and find a wire mod.Jared66 said:Question. Anyone know if the stock lockers and t case ect can handle up to 6th gear 4 low ? For say heavy snow conditions ect. And or.

So you are saying it is better to shift from 4 low back to 2 high 20 or 30 times a day instead of just staying in 4 low for a half a mile or so. I have to disagree with you on this one.GeckoJK said:Even if you can technically go faster, you really have no business over 10mph in 4 low.
Ok that's what I thought u guys meant and id rather shit 1000 times a day over breaking or putting way to much unneeded stress on axles motor and all the other things. In my yj when im in 4low you can tell just from trying to crawl in 4low it doesn't wanna go far or in 6th gear pr whatever let alone above 20...like someone said if you going more then 20 or whatever then you don't need to be in 4lowCMA_Rider said:Rubicon jk's do
