    Or you could learn what the switch does by looking in the manual? Free and informative

    I believe that switch releases the rear axle. The Tartan Prancer had a similar option.

    Give me a little credit. I know what the switch does, blah blah. Maybe I should have worded it differently.... would love one that actually said Rear Diff Lock, or the like,,,

    CH4x4, as the above post mentioned, should cover what you're looking for. You want the "Toyota small" style switch, there is plenty of room behind the overhead panel for anything you would want.

    Honestly if you don't know what it is and you got a off-road the chances of you actually using it are probably slim to none......
