I usually drive with diff lock and traction control on in difficult terrain, and it certainly better. In sandy stuff I use TC off and sometimes with the diff lockon, sometimes off. Still not sure which is best. Lowering tyre pressure has the biggest effect.

Can you engage the factory rear diff lock in 2wd? I have vlads TC mod loom installed. Or do I need to do something extra.

Diff lock is on a seperate circuit and would need a different mod.

Doesn't engaging diff lock deactivate TC anyway? (in fact ABS, ASC and TC are all off in this case?)

Says it can only be used in 4HLc and 4LLc.... never tried out-with... but probably an interlock in the ECU.

Jimbo's signature indicates he has a "TC mod", which is probably a wiring mod to allow both traction control and rear diff lock at the same time.

I don't know what effect such modifications have on ABS and ASC. But I have an aftermarket rear diff lock of which my factory systems are completely unaware, and have never had concerns about using diff lock with ABS, ASC and TC being operational.

The only issue I've ever noticed is that my Paj gets tail-happy on high-speed dirt with my rear diff-lock engaged (i.e. I've forgotten to turn it off) and the ASC intervention (power cut) becomes very noticeable. But the factory diff lock would disengage at those speeds anyway.

Note that I don't consider this behaviour (ASC intervention with rear diff-lock) a concern, because I'm an unreformed hoon who doesn't mind some opposite lock, and would probably enjoy driving more often with the rear diff locked if the ASC didn't spoil the fun.
