This is a newbie 4x4rr from Pakistan. I'm Fahim Anwar and would like to seek professional advice and comments to play better with my new rig.
It's a Toyota LJZ 70 with 1KZ engine and top mount intercooler. Front manual hub locks and electronically engaged H4 and rear diff lockers. Short wheel based 3 door pocket rocket.
Just changed its clutch and pressure plate to get some power and did an engine compression test which showed 360/355/350/340 psi on gauges.
I was told not to use rear diff lockers with H4. Why??
I understand rear diff lockers with L4 is recommended cases where u r stuck in mud or sand. But can I put my rear diff lockers on and go straight line in foot deep mud in H4??
A sudden steep climb required L4 with rear diff lockers ON but also some revs. Where can we draw the line when we say "not much revs while in rear diff lockers". I have some video clips to define what I am talking about.
Maybe I can upload it on youtube and then post a link here for reviews? Is it allowed?
First video is done in H4 1st gear as if I shift to 2nd the engine stalls upon reaching almost to top. This can also be done in L4 first and then second gear. I tried a crawl in L4 with 1st gear but you need more revs after half the way up and thats when wheels spin.
Second video is done in L4 with rear diff lockers. I tried without rear diff lockers but could not make it. I need to ask if this much rev is allowed while in L4 with 1st gear and rear diff lockers.
Waiting for comments
