    Im curious how does the factory E-locker work for you guys? Hoping for a 2nd gen, didnt know if the 1st and 2nd generation both have the same locker. But im hearing ifs and ands on them. Mine is staring to act up so I think like when I engage the locker the RR diff lock light flashes for atleast a minute before it locks and sometimes it can take 5 or more minutes for it to pop out and open the diff (sometimes other times when I push the button back in it pops out right then.). Is this normal?

    No, not normal... at least from my experience with 3 Tacomas all TRD Off Road 4WDs (2001, 2005, 2010, combined mileage of 260,000 miles).

    While the rear locker doesn't always engage at the first try... sometimes up to 5 trys to get it to lock... it still does, and sometimes even on the first try. Turning it off has always been much easier...

    I think the key is to use it frequently to keep the parts 'loose' and working... In the case of the 2009 or newer 4WDs, we now have A-TRAC and the 'need' for the rear locker is pretty much gone... just nice to have as a choice!

    Why would turning help lock the rear?
