I'm thinking of fitting locking diffs front and rear on my Defender td5, which is fitted with ABS and traction control.

Will the TC interfere with the locking diffs?

I've done some research online but can't find a definite answer.

Are there Difflockers who have done this? Experiences?

Any recommendations as to which locking differential to choose?

Not sure how that would work, Jim. I've driven a range rover on one of those LR Experience off road days and it was amazing what it could do with the traction control. What is your Landy not doing that's making you consider lockers?

TC only kicks in once traction is lost in one or more wheels. In practice this means that, for example when going up steep terrain, you come to a halt, then TC kicks in and (with luck...) you get moving again. It's indeed quite amazing what it is capable of, but not as good as lockers. A limitation is that TC operates for a short time only (I think it is one minute), to stop the brakes overheating.

If you lock the diffs the TC doesn't see a speed difference between the wheels so doesn't do anything surely?

If you've got the rear and centre locker in but not a front and it starts spinning a front wheel it will still only brake the wheel that's spinning?

Seems logical to me but I've never tried it?!

I donít see the problem, the diff locks will do the intended job and if it slips the TC will help, if no traction is lost it be dormant until needed if at all, itís the same process in some high performance cars with LSDís fitted, it will also not affect the ABS.
