Diff Locks For 2005 Rav4?

Recommended Posts

I have a late 2005 Rav4 which I use every year to go to a hut in the Alps which is 3,500 ft up a mountain. Sometimes we need chains as well as winter tyres (obligatory in Austria) to get up and sometimes it is impossible - typically when temperature is near zero and there is fresh snow

My question: Is it possible to fit diff locks on this vehicle? Either central electric or get out and lock them - either would be vastly easier than chains which are a real pain when it is dark, snowing and cold.

The problem, as always, is spinning tyres ...

No. The only thing you can do is fit a limited slip rear if it hasn't got one. It's not easy to tell before you ask.
