2021 Defender Limited HD10 Tracks and Diff-Lock


Recommended Posts

Greetings... Purchased my Defender and for 2 weeks been installing accessories to include LT360 tracks.  Much better than my Ranger was.  

Question, do you run tracks with Diff-Lock on all the time?  Thank you.  Ride Safe

Michigan Upper Peninsula riding in the snow and lakes is terrific!

Thanks Bad Daddy!  I run mine of-course in 4WD, I did notice it does not ty to "plow" thru tight corners in the woods when the Diff-Lock is off.  Just not certain if its hard on the machine to run without Diff-Lock.  I'll take your lead and run it all the time.  I have so much stuff I've dded I'll take pics for the rest of the guys and get uploaded.

On deep snow, for sure, locked. 

On groomed trails, you could probably go unlocked...I’ll try it and let you know!

We have added a few things too.  
Hence the name, DeFunder. 

I have tried it locked and unlocked. 
In low range, when doing steep trail work, locked. 
Deep powder locked. 
On hard pack unlocked. 

I think the manual said locked.  Or maybe I saw it on YouTube , lol

From my inexperienced viewpoint, yes, running in high is ok.  I've been testing the system with Diff-Lock one and off this last week and week-en and it certainly responds better in turns with Diff off.  So if I'm in the woods with sharp turns, 3' of snow, I stop and turn Diff Off and it performs great.  On open lakes with 12" or less of snow I run high with Diff off.  On bare ice -- scary -- I run high with Diff on, but go slow as this machine can get sideways quickly.  

I'm going to add a few studs for better control on hard glazy snow and bare ice.

We will be testing again this weekend. Over 15” of fresh!

 -31C (-21F) right now, sure glad I put in heated seats, half doors and a windshield. 

sure wish I put in a heater, full doors and fender flares!  Oh well, at the time it seemed like a lot of $.  

I need to figure out a way to make the half doors into full doors so no snow gets in... back seat is a bit snowy when it’s dry out!
