    So my current 04 Supercharged X has an open diff, but I have a limited slip diff lying around from an Xterra which I parted out. I've heard the LSD's on Xterras were kinda useless - wondering if it's worth the hassle to swap to the LSD?? The LSD has 108k miles on it, so not much, so I'm hoping...

    I have a 2000 XE 4x4, and I seem to recall someone saying that anytime you cross any deep water you should replace the fluids, (transfer case? differential?). Is this accurate? Thanks, Jerry
  4. Offroad Drivetrain
    I have a Lokka for the front diff on the way, and thought it'd be great if I could get the rear end acting a little less like an open diff. ARB is out of the question as I'd just as soon buy a different vehicle altogether for the same amount of money. Also the front locker will likely take care...

    Ok so I just bought my '02 SE a week ago w/ 118k miles on it. When I test drove it I didn't really test the 4wd, mainly because at the time I didn't know I had to push down on the lever to engage 4-lo and 4-hi worked for me.
