Hi all, slightly off topic, but I have a quick question.

If an after market elocker has been installed into the rear of a MN Triton, should the traction control cables running to the rear brakes be disconnected?

Leave them connected.
They are for the abs sensors.
If you disconnect them, the abs will no longer be operational.

If you have an incident, you can have your insurance cancelled for tampering with a safety system regardless if its your fault or not

Not sure why you’d disconnect them? With the locker activated they won’t sense any difference in wheel spin and won’t do anything.

And to go with that, the other diff has the benefit of traction control. Win win.

Wasn't for me Moses, i was crawling round under my brothers MN (which has a rear elocker) and i thought i saw that they were disconnected. On closer inspection i however found that there is 2 empty plugs on the wiring harness, and 1 that actually attaches to both drum brakes, SO CRISIS AVERTED hahah :lol:
