Exclamation Petition for a Recall on TRD E Locker Actuators

I've been without mine for about a year now, finally looked into it today. Long story short it's no wonder these things fail all the time. They aren't sealed very well from factory and have a perfect hiding hole beside the 3rd member to trap salt, grime and moisture! Not to mention the crappy magnesium housing cover that literally fell apart as I took it off!

So I'm posting this wondering why Toyota is not putting out a recall on such a problem? There was recently a recall for the spare tire carriers rusting and falling off and from my research online the E-locker actuator has been a far bigger issue for a much longer time than this recent spare tire recall.

If you agree please take the time to comment on Toyota's Facebook page, under my post there (Tron K Blum), dunno how to link to it. Or just post on the page!

Also feel free to discuss here as well this isn't restricted to just 1st Gens either!

I was lucky to get my replaced with only 1500 miles left on my extended warranty and 118k on the truck. I have only heard of one other person where their actuator stopped working.

Well it was worth a shot. Thought it was more common of an issue.

I see your point on safety as well. I still feel like Toyota should somewhat stand behind this issue though. I just got quoted $1700 for a replacement actuator from the dealer!!! $1700??? I'd rather buy a new non TRD 8.4 axle and drop in gears and a posi/ARB.
