Is the 4x4 Posi-Lok a locking
4x4 Posi-Lok is the patented (Patent No. 5,605,213)
cable activated engagement device designed to replace the failure
prone OEM (Original Equipment Manufacture) vacuum and electric front
axle engagement systems. 4x4 Posi-Lok is not a posi-trac or locker.
4x4 Posi-Lok is simple and easy to install and allows you to engage
your front axle from inside the cab. After engaging the transfer
case, a one-inch pull of the 4x4 Posi-Lok cable ensures the front
axles are connected. This system puts the driver in direct control
of the 4-wheel drive front axle engagement.
4x4 Posi-Lok reduces front
differential wear and right axle breakage.
4x4 Posi-Lok provides 2-wheel
drive low range, giving the vehicle 4-LO torque at the rear
axle with bind free steering only available in 2-HI. This feature
is not available with factory systems and is beneficial when
4x4 Posi-Lok will not disengage
when ignition is turned off or the differential is submerged.
4x4 Posi-Lok is compatible
with manual or electric transfer cases and installation can
be completed in one to two hours with basic hand tools. No internal
differential work is required
4x4 Posi-Lok can be installed under two hours
with simple hand tools.
The weak link is eliminated. Vacuum and electric
actuators tend to fail for various reasons leaving you stuck! The
4x4 Posi-Lok puts the driver in control of the 4 wheel drive engagement.
The 4x4 Posi-Lok provides the benefit of
2 wheel drive low range by simply not engaging the front axle. This
is beneficial on the trail when maneuvering in tight corners or
when maneuvering trailers/campers.

No. The 4x4 Posi-Lok replaces

intermediate axle shafts. A locker is installed in the differential.
