The big problem with Kinnettick is they just trick the system into thinking it's in 4-Low which means you end up with 4-low throttle mapping in 4 hi. Not ideal.

Yeah, I want the one that takes the Smartbar out of the equation. I don't care if I have it in 4wd high, I just find it annoying that it doesn't lock with out finesse. My ARB's. When you flip the switch. It locked. That's what I want.

I don't think there is much finesee involved as we think. I think your tires need to be able to slip so the gears can align and I think there is a speed limiter. Like you have to be under 3mph or something. I think people are trying to go too fast, or not moving at all, or on a surface that a tire can't slip. That's my lame theory anyway. I know mine got easier when I started not doing that, using them often, changed my first gear fluid and placed MagFilters in the diffs. /shrug. I know when i wasn't staring at it... and I needed them in Moab they were snapping right in.

My lockers almost always engaged quickly. Never had the problems others seem to have. I think Zak is onto something. There is a built in limiter. 3mph

Also, your axle can be under tension and you might need to unload it/roll to lock. It’s the same with unlocking. Sometimes it will take a minute to unload.

Another thing about bypasses and what not. With the center axle disconnect, I can engage my front pocket in 2 hi but the wheels won’t lock because the CAD only engages in 4Lo.

Not a huge deal to me, since I’m usually already in low when I want the front axle locked.

That being said, hard wire is INSTANT. It’s by far my favorite mod next to my King shocks.

I have stated in the past I didn’t see a need for a bypass, but my smart bar had the plug corrod. And now that I did it, I love it. I see the appeal.

It’s just nice to be in Moab on an obstacle and turn those t suckers on and off when I need them.
