Left foot braking technique with LSD on Jeep XJ
In the first two attempts, I was in 4H, and couldnt make it over the top because the right rear spun, I then used the left foot braking technique to shift power to the left rear wheel (watch break light), but the wheel did not receive sufficient power to push the vehicle to the top.
In the third attempt, I applied the brakes the same, but in 4L, so the wheel received sufficient power to push the vehicle over the top, and spin!
Also notice that the LSD transfers power from the spinning wheel to the wheel with traction, only after the brakes are released.
Barlow Jeep School demonstrates the how-to's and advantages of using
left-foot braking while driving your Jeep on 4wd trails. For complete

Weekend trip to Glen Oakes, near Caledon, Western Cape, South Africa.
The 2nd section had some nice sandy cross-axles. The Jeeps practiced
left-foot braking to compensate for the lack of diff-locs while the rest of
the party had a braai in the shade.
A Musso pitched up to investigate what all the revving and flexing was
