Pardon my response, as I'm a little confused of what you're asking.
You list that you own a 2001. And I'm not sure 'what' truck you are referring to.
If you have a TRD Off-road version (Pre-runner or 4WD variety) ....
Utilize in this order on non-pavement (hard non-slip surfaces) only:
If you can't drive the terrain in 2WD - Go into 4WD.
If you can't drive the terrain in 4WD - Go into 4Lo range.
If you can't drive the terrain in 4Lo range - engage the locker.
Note #1: The locker will only engage in 4Lo range on a 4WD vehicle
Note #2: The locker will engage on a 2WD Prerunner
1995-2004 trucks do not have TRD Sport and they do not have AUTO LSD.
Some (rare) 1995-2004 may have a mechanical LSD
2005-2008 TRD Sport has mechanical LSD. Only SOME have AUTO LSD but they DO NOT have mechanical LSD and AUTO LSD on the same vehicle.
2009+ ALL trucks have AUTO LSD
2009+ TRD Sport DO NOT have mechanical LSD
