TeraFlex Tech: Open vs Locked Differentials
http://www.teraflex.com A must see for a new Jeep Rubicon owner. A sweet
ride with tons of features. On this video Brooke & Dennis break down the
differences between open and lock differentials.
How Diff Lock Works and When To Use It (UK Terminology, Land Rover)
This video instructs the viewer on how the standard *CENTRE* "diff lock"
works in a permanent 4 wheel drive (4x4) vehicle, a Land Rover in this
case, and gives an idea for how and when to use it.
A Land Rover Discovery was the vehicle featured in the demonstrations, but
this video applies to any 4x4 vehicle with a center diff lock.
In summary, diff lock (whether it be the centre diff lock fitted as
standard or front/rear aftermarket diff lock) is useful in slippery
situations such as snow, ice and mud.
Open vs Locked Differential - Torque Transfer - Explained
How does an open differential work? How does a locked differential work?
How does an open differential allow for varying speeds between the left and
right driveshafts? How does a locked differential transfer torque to the
tire with more grip? All of these questions will hopefully be answered by
the end of the video.

EATON G80 LOCKER Demonstration Video (Chevrolet Silverado)
Showing the EATON G80 locking differential working in a variety of
situations (mud, snow, wet pavement) and giving a brief description about
it and its use in the beginning of the video.
*I state in the video this is designed to be a LOW SPEED traction device.
How ever in the video you'll see me spooling up the tires quite a bit. It
isn't recommended to put this unit through that type of abuse, an LSD is
better suited for that. But this came in the truck when I bought it and it
works, and I just like having fun with my gear and pushing it to its limit.
I am fully aware of the consequences in terms of catastrophic differential
