Don't feel bad.. I couldn't get the mudders I had to spin worth a damn on pavement, not enough torque to move 'em with my little 3.4 Taco that I had. I tore the hell out of the stock tires though.

It does launch hard as hell, I used to get nasty axle twist with the stock springs.. that stopped when I got new leafs.. Probably didn't help that the stock springs were shot to hell.

Hey so i started doing the mod, but when i took off the panel i found this. i was missing that box that you have on your tacoma (box covered with black foam). Anybody know what its for?
it was just a loose connector

P.s. i already did the grey mod, but i want to know what that box is for?

SAND. SAND EVERYWHERE!! It think the box controls the transfer case actuator. So if yours is a J shift that could be why you don't have it. That's the Only thing I can think of.

Did this today. The only trouble was getting the white harness to unplug from the control box. I don't know why it fought so hard, but it wanted to just pull all the innards out with it. Other than that, 10 minute mod.

I just did this mod. Seems to work fine. It seems to take a while to get it to lock - 20-30 seconds or so. Is that normal?

Thats pretty common either with or without the MOD, you'll find that the more you engage it the easier & quicker it'll become...

Grey wire mod

Just did the mod since I put a new e locker motor on yesterday, so I did this today. Took about 20 minutes because I ground the grey wire from the wiring harness instead of grounding the grey wire from the connector that plugs into the 4x4 black box

Just a heads up on anyone about to do this mod, remember to ground the grey wire pigtail out of the white connector that plugs into the 4x4 box

Just a great mod, I love using the locker in 2wd. It has a lot more power. I LOVE IT!
a must do mod for anyone with an e locker
