In the owners manual it reccomends a top speed with front and rear diffs locked, I beleive it is 5mph. I haven't found any reccomended top speed while in low range, having only the center diff locked.

Any ideas? And I presume this would be the same once I install my CD swith (in high range but with center locked)?

So, no real speed issues with the center locked? I'm thinking of dirt/mud/snow roads where it might be beneficial to have the center locked, but you might also get to 30 or so mph.

Nope, just common sense related to road conditions, ETC. :G

Probably the main issue with higher speeds with the front and rear diffs locked is controling the vehicle. BTW, the F&R diffs will only lock at speeds below 5mph but they will not unlock regardless of speed until told to by the operator.

I tried it and when I went into H it unlocked the front diff. My rear diff is "out of order" till I get the cable lock setup on it. Then I can lock the rear any time I want, H or L :wave:
