    Sorry if the answer has already been posted, but I was wondering if the gray wire mod will work on a 2011 Tacoma?

    I'm not aware of any gray wire mod. Does this give the truck aquatic powers? I know the yellow wire mod is good for traction on ground.

    I heard about the grey wire mod having to do with having your rear locker instead of running at only 5 mph, it makes it full time

    You can yes the ocker going as fast as you want, however you must be going less than 5mph to engage it. Not really a bad thing for life of the parts.

    The mod makes it so that you can engage the locker on while in 2hi and 4hi rather than just in 4lo.

    No Truck..well, maybe
    Grey wire MOD, deck plate, diff breather MOD, 2nd gen. OME 883# on Tundra 5100's, OMD custom 3" leafsprings, rear shock relocation, Ivan Stewart TRD rims w/285/75/16's, '02 bumper MOD, Famous Fabrications sliders , LED interior/exterior lights, bed bar, Custom tube bumper, Old school KC day lighters,Red Ring 8" HID flood, Kenwood vhf 2M.. umm some other shit I'm forgetting right now
    The Gray wire MOD in its simplicity refers to 1st gen 4x TRD's which allows you to engage the E locker in any range, a simple 10 min. procedure, takes longer to round up the tools than to do the MOD, stupid simple, the MOD for 2nd gens tho'..... holy shit !!
    vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv


    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Not so simple...
