rear locker speed?

How fast have you held speed w/ rear locked. I think i read some where 5mph was it. I have gone much faster for short stince, like thru the whoops on sand hwy. to get to the back of pismo. I have held maybe 15/20mph for longer on sand wash roads and duning. Am i hurting my fj

Re: rear locker speed?

You haven't hurt your FJ

I believe the Prerunner Tacoma Off-road package truck with factory diff lock automatically disconnects at 30 MPH.

I beleive the theme of the 5MPH warning is so noobs don't drive off the trail because steering is altered with the rear diff locked.

Re: rear locker speed?

thanks for the reply. makes since. the 4x2 aired down worked good/ok. i pull a 12 foot enclosed trailer and we camp about 150/200 ft into the deep stuff. keeping the speed up is key with the 4x2 trailer pull. once close i have the ford guys adjust me in to postion. once unhooked it's diffently a crazy ride. speeds around 25, drifting style turns, stopping only on downhills, and i not affraid to ask for a tug out. i keep the strap hooked up and thrown thru the window. we have done pismo a couple of times as well as the oregon coast dunes.

Re: rear locker speed?

I've gone as fast as 70mph with the rear locker on. No issues at all. The 5 mph limit toyota says is a joke.

Re: rear locker speed?

If you say so. Plus the steering being altered is half the fun of having a locker.

Re: rear locker speed?

I've brought it between 30-40 mph with no handling or operation problems. I'm so used to driving my mustang with a locker it made no difference.
