They are worth it as the 2wd with front drive train immobolised is much smoother on tarmac not to mention better fuel economy. That monster of a SUV gave me 6 kms to a litre on a 4.5 litre engine!
The process you have mentioned here is to lock and unlock the center differential to split 50:50 torque on front and rear,The procedure to unlock it is same in safari and scorpio but on endeavour there is a switch near steering to unlock it.

No Anshuman to the best of my knowledge there was no centre diff on the part time 4wd of the Landcruiser GXR. This procedure is to free the hubs once you are done with 4wd use.

Central diff appear on full time 4wds like the VXR series or the Lexus 4wd. Those have a electronic centre diff lock.

That bold doesn't come with the hub locks. It's the standard one fitted on the jeep so you can buy it from the dealer.

After searching high and low at all the India Garage's for the lamda hubs i got fed up and just landed up at the lamda manufacturing unit after electronic city.The price difference is too much.In India Garage i was quoted Rs 4600 for a set of hubs whereas i purchased the same at the unit for Rs 2750 plus taxes.

@4x4addict: I mentioned about you to Mr Arun but he could'nt recall meeting you.

One more good news.While I was talking to Mr Arun he mentioned that Lamda has started making winches and currently has a 5ton hydraulic winch.the cost he said was around 45000 rs.He said the same had been displayed at the recently concluded Palar Challenge in Hyderabad.Apparently they were able to lift a scorpio completely in the air using the winch.He also said that they were in the process of coming out with an electric winch and it should'nt cost more than 60000 rs hopefully.

Lamda Products were displayed at Jeep Thrills Mitsubishi Monsoon Challenge 2008 in Hyderabad and were received extremely well by 4x4 enthusiasts in the city.

Lamda had showcased
  • Manual Free Wheeling Hubs
  • Automatic Free Wheeling Hubs
  • 5000 Kg Hydraulic Winch

Visitors to their pavilion were impressed by the fact that the high quality indigenous products were priced economically as compared to the imported gear available in the market, making the buy excellent VFM. There is also a feeling of reliability as these products are made for Indian vehicles by people who know them very well and they relate to our conditions.

  • Automatic Free Wheeling Hubs
Anyone wanting to get a hold of Automatic Free Wheeling Hubs, please be careful. They were installed in 1 Mahindra and we did an OTR this weekend and they just did not work.

Will post a detailed report later after getting the full report from the Mahindra driver.

PS: This is just a heads-up.

One of them was Sreeni's Armada. He had a tough time. The hubs were slipping repeatedly, hence no traction on front wheels. Finally he replaced it with Manual free wheeling hubs. But then, it was a testing fixment from Lambda.

Default Free wheeling hubs

Hey Guys,

Hopefully I'm not hijacking this thread...had questions on manual free wheeling hubs, how hard is the manual effort of engaging and disengaging the wheels from drive shaft? Can we do this real quick? What are the chances of breakage?
