    I grabbed my DPDT DC relay from Radio shack (part 275-218) and the wiring was different than the PDF showed.

    Read this post.


    If you have any questions send me a PM. I am very familiar with this mod.

    Just be careful how you use it.....

    If you're still under warrantee and you break something in the driveline due to using the locker in 2WD.... they could deny your warrantee coverage because you disabled/bypassed the factory safety features from the factory.

    it is a really simple mod, my only suggestion would be to unwrap the wires so they are very easy to access.

    get a socket for the relay. don't want to have to disconnect and re-solder everything in the future b/c the relay craps out. just unplug old relay and plug in a new one.

    another set of eyes to verify the wiring would be good. a friend caught a simple mistake i made before i fried anything.

    make sure you can undo whatever you do, so if it is a warranty issue, can you fix it
