    I have a 03 taco v-6 4x4 and was wondering if anyone knows of an easy way to get 4wd low range without the front axle being engaged ( 2wd low range ). I like to use 4 low range for parking and moving my boat around as it is easier on the clutch but with the drive line bind in 4wd low I'm worried about doing damage. I thought I might be able to add a switch somewhere to deactivate the front ADD actuator.
    I have searched the web and various service manuals forever with no luck as to a solution.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Love my Taco.

    Thx Pugga for your help. I found a few things that I will try and see how it works. If I have any luck I will let you know how it goes. Mine will be easier as I have the first gen with the J shifter. (I hope :eek:).

    Nothing yet. Just getting started.
    Manual lock-outs?
