    I found out what it is.. I searched. :D

    To save you the search.. Basically you cut a (4-6") hole in your airbox, and mount this threared ring to the air box. basically it opens up the air flow into your air box, then you also have the option of screwing the cap in and closing it off. If your in the rain or mud i guess.

    If you have a TRD with locker it allows you to use it in 2wd, 4h, and 4lo. Rather than just 4lo

    you don't need it. it is because the 4x4's can only use the locker in 4lo unless you do the mod.

    So stock the 4x4 can only use it in 4lo while the Prerunner can only use it in 2xd obviously since its not 4x4?

    Yes, you are correct. The stock TRD can't, the modded can.
