I have the Tazer. The guys who installed my lift and tires also installed the tazer. I haven’t even looked into how to use it. You can lock in 4 hi with it? Thanks!
Yes, I have the tazer jl mini, I’m not sure you can with the other versions. You can go on their website and download all the information and instructions. Do you know which tazer you have?

Who says you gotta be under 25mph?
I'll bet its due to the 4 to 1 gear reduction in the rubi transfer

Would be the same as 100 in high

Thanks for the reply! The manual for the JL says for 4 lo you need to be under 25 or 30mph.

So for a muddy hill with no traction in 4 lo you are going to use 4 hi? Or are you going to keep it in lo?
??? Which is it 25 . . . or . . . 30 ? Apparently you seem to be GUESSING . DIDN'T EVEN READ IT DID YOU ?
Some things require COMMON SENSE . . . ! That's all I'm saying . . . agree with D60 .

I've never had a situation on the road to use 4WLo.
I use it only when doing rocky or hilly trails (normally engaged the entire day) I was told it eases the strain on the entire drivetrain and never felt the need to go fast on those trails..

I only use 4L for rocks and really steep climbing. 4H on any snow, mud, hills or any combo of the three.
Unless your crawling 4L is just too slow for fun and slinging muck.

Just a thought, not a recommendation. If they were indeed in 4LO and hitting it "hard", they probably were running with a high RPM. It takes a lot of rpms to move very quickly in 4lo
They weren’t moving much at all, very slow crawl up the dirt mound but tires were spinning like crazy all the way up. That is what I was thinking would cause damage.

Thanks!

Lol, you’re a tool dude! I read the manual and couldn’t remember what the speed limit is on it. 25 or 30 has no bearing on my question!

Hey buddy I’m all about Joking but your post didn’t come off that way to me. But glad you were joking.

Wasn’t a Staff Sergeant, the SS was my MOS. 8541

See you around Lou and stay safe as well!
