When the "going gets tough", the third and the standard differential lock on the rear axle differential lock keep Daily 4x4 in motion. The front axle differential lock is available as an option. All differential locks can be engaged with the vehicle in motion and automatically disengage when the vehicle reaches a predetermined speed (varies according to the differential lock concerned).
