    It comes with a Rear Locker from factory and I understand it acts a little like an Auto Locker once engaged. DASH Offroad do a little Loom plug that you plug in and it turns the Locker selection switch basically into an E Locker with certain On or Off.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    They have a (rear diff) helical LSD , and a factory electric switch activated rear locker, once its locked, its locked, and will not act like a Auto locker nor allow slip off throttle like a Auto locker, it just locked.

    The dash off road locker switch, is the KO Gear one, this box plugs directly into the factory locker loom behind the rear quarter panel trim.

    As standard, activating the locker switch, it can take a while to actually engage the diff lock, the car has a good old think about it, sometimes needing to drive forward and turn the steering wheel etc, (pretty anoying at the entry to a steep hill climb) but with the KO Gear switch fitted, it bypasses all the "thinking" and just engages the locker straight away when you say so, also enabling the locker to be activated at any time in any other modes.


    Kerry (KO Gear) also does a switch to disable the 4x4 system so you only have drive to the rear wheels , combined with the rear locker switch "on" in any mode.......well you see where that goes (lol)



    The other thing to consider, is that the traction control works so well in the 62 as standard, that you rarely even need to use the locker, in fact ive spent the weekend at Janowen hills 4x4 park, another at LCMP, and countless other 4x4 trips, and never used the locker once.
