How to change rear Differential Fluid (detailed version)
How to change your differential fluid, how to change diff fluid, Learn how
to change your rear differential fluid. In this process I unbolt the
differential cover (pumpkin cover) because there is no drain plug. Then I
make my own gasket with RTV because there is no gasket for this
differential. Only basic tools are needed and anyone could do this job.

How a Differential Works and Types of Differentials
Video I created for Toyota in 2007. This was produced on a budget but its
purpose is to explain the concepts and not be a Pixar-budget film.

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 - Explained
What is the difference between an open differential and a locked
For information on how differentials work, I recommend the following video:
A look into open differential, and locked differentials. The difference
between each and what they mean. It should be noted that some open
differentials have locking mechanisms, so that they can act as locked
differentials when needed.
Open vs. Locked - The Physics Explained:
If you don't believe me about the 50:50 torque split with an open diff,
read the first sentence of this link:
Still don't believe it? Read this article:
Here's a quote from the above article:
"An open (or unlocked) differential always provides the same torque
(rotational force) to each of the two wheels, on that axle. So although the
wheels can rotate at different speeds, they apply the same rotational
force, even if one is entirely stationary, and the other spinning. (Equal
torque, unequal rotational speed)."
I know it's not entirely intuitive, but these are the facts.

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

How Differential Gear works must see 100%
This is NOT the full video, cuz the full video has 4 useless minutes.. and
i was looking around in all the internet to understand how it works, and i
opened that video a lot of times , and i closed it , cuz i thought that it
does not talk about the differential, cuz it talks about it after 4 min, so
i make this useful CUT.. the original one in titled ---How Differential
Gear works (BEST Tutorial)---
