    Has any one tried this on a 2010 off road yet. Tried it today and the check engine lite would come on and stay on until i unhooked the ground cable. Also the traction control stayed off and would not reset except by doing the same thing. I did work except for these two little dilemmas!

    It was the single wire and one switch not the relay one

    Well other that hooking up the wrong end of the wire,I dont think there is much you can get wrong on that style.From what I understand its only implying your truck is in 4lo,which should work in any model.I used the relay method and have never had a problem.Good luck on finding a 10 owner that has done it,you may be the first.

    How about a link to the place that shows the method he is talking about? I would like to have the option of the RR Locker in H4... However, my first off road tests sure make using TRAC and A-TRAC seem like the RR Locker may no longer be needed...?

    The ATRAC system would take time to engage the braking system and in turn not be locked or 100% power applied to both wheels,Where as the locker mod would be on and you would not encounter loss of traction or momentum loss before the ATRAC system kicked in.So it truely depends on how you plan to use your truck and what type of wheeling you do.As far as the method he is using,To each his own but seems like a pain in the ass to trip another switch unless you are a clumsy fuck when it comes to a button on your dash.It will not engage at freeway speed and its pretty hard to miss the light on the dash.As for the link The OP should post it so we can see how he is going about this.

    Agreed...

    The RR Locker is used for steep, slow climbing in poor traction (off road) conditions. I have used mine often in my '01 and '05 Tacomas.

    When I tested my new 2010 with A-TRAC, I didn't notice any greater amount of traction when the RR Locker was activated, over the A-TRAC. But, it is still a new Toy!
