Yes, this is tough!

With less than 10% humidity being very common here, water-related issues rarely cross my mind

But, yes, those unloaded wheels plus the mud and the water, this is serious.

We can quite accurately predict rainfall. In fact, we have a reliable way of making it rain. Just organise a camping weekend or off road trip, and voila, lots of rain in the very area you plan to go. And if that fails, which it rarely does, I can always wash the car.

Yes, big difference being welded is permanent. Results in tricky handling to say the least, especially in the wet. Will end up snapping axles or something inside the diff. Not something you should do to a road car.

but when you will lock your diff with e locker it will be as welded diff. meaning it can snap CV too.

Firstly, you are more likely to break an axle on high grip surfaces, such as a normal sealed road, especially when turning. You turn off the e-locker on such surfaces. Secondly, I run the bigger R180 axles, which from the factory are far stronger than the R160 axles people have been using in welded diffs

Awesome!! Well done!

Unfortunately with the tyres you're running you won't be able to get the most out of the locker. Now to get some offroad tyres designed for offroad use & to give better grip in slippery conditions like that boghole. Then you'll be able to give the locker a decent test in some tricky conditions.

Now for the rest of us to get a R160 e-locker...

It need to climb some places and test when couple tires in air thats when those 4x4 uses lockers at least.
