Not without some significant engineering. You would need either a five speed box arrangement off a 4.2 or a thrird diff arrangement off a 4.1.

Over-riding the 4WD lock on a 4.3 would very quickly wreck the transmission or burn the multi plate drive unit out.

Is there a way of makin a 4.3 perm 4x4?

You could press the diff lock button + stay below 23mph, but seriously why would you want to :unsure: my understanding is that its always in 4x4 when neccesary, and their would be an additional fuel cost if it were permanantly 4x4, you currently have the best of both worlds + this weather won't be here forever! :thumbsup: Stew

Thanks for the answers. It would be nice if there was a snow mode that auto locked under 23mph. As for the snow not being with us for long I live in the countryside north of Newcastle we've had it for well over a week now an -11c temps make the roads a pleasure! Today was a nice 2c.

Has anyone got an exploded diag of the 4.3's 4wd system an any info on what the lock button does?

I dont really care about tyre wear or fuel costs im more keen on grip.
