Rear Locker How Quick

Hey I'm in the market for a used Tacoma and last weekend I took one with the TRD option package for a test drive. In an empty parking lot I locked the rear locker while in 4 low. It took what seemed like a long time for it to engage. When I unlocked the rear it took even longer to disengage. I'm used to the ARB in my Jeep that locks and unlocks immediately, so is it normal for it to take a long time to lock and unlock?

I really liked the truck, but the locker speed concerned me. I don't want to by a problem, if you know what I mean. But, if slow is normal, I can live with it.

If your drive straight it will take a bit to engage but if you lock it and turn your steering wheel either to the right or left while moving slowly or even stopped it will lock right away .

It only takes a few seconds when everything is lined up. If you have a little slip in one wheel, it will wait until its aligned. It spring loaded. I would be to concerned about it. It will lock faster the more you use it too. There are gears and grease involved. Gotta use em to keep em workin.
