Our resident 4WD expert Jason Lock talks about the history of the diff lock and how Uneek 4x4 has developed a new Cap Locker.

We talk about the effects of a factory LSD when you fit a traditional diff lock and how the cap locker will enable the vehicle to retain the use of the LSD.

We look at the changes to the design, which will make the cap locker easier and cheaper to install and also more reliable.  We talk about the design and testing process that the Cap Locker has gone through to be able to bring this product to market.

We talk about what models will be available now (Suzuki and Landcruiser) and also what will be next as well as some of the new bull bars, followed by Subaru and Prado lockers.

Another great Australian manufacturing story about a product that has been wholly designed and manufactured in Australia!

We talk about how to prepare for a trip out into the Snow.  Snow driving is a lot of fun, but the conditions are very different to other types of 4 wheel driving.

Snow driving is usually done in very cold environments, so preparation is a lot more important.  Spending a night out in the snow can be life threatening if you are not prepared for it.

  • What equipment should you think about taking out on a snow trip.
  • We talk tyres, what type and what pressure you should be running.
  • Alpine Diesel fuel - what is it and when you should use it.
  • When you should carry chains.
  • How conditions change when driving in snow and on icy roads.

We also talk about the upcoming 9th Annual Victorian gathering in November 2016 at Sheepyard Flat.

This is a great opportunity for people new to 4 wheel driving and camping to get together with other 4x4earth members.  There will be a lot of 4x4 tracks to be done and a lot of people who can make your first or second time out a nice and easy trip out.  Sheepyard's is a gateway to some amazing tracks and huts.  This is Australia's largest free 4 wheel drive weekend away, so check out the details and come along!
