    Look at build!
    do you have the button on the dash for "RR Diff Lock", and you can also look at the rear axle and see the motor sticking out "towards the front of truck".

    Well, if you have a TRD, you have an e-locker. If you have an e-locker, you can do the grey wire mod.

    Just because he has a TRD sticker doesnt mean its a TRD..the best way to tell is to look for the blue and yellow bilstein shocks if its still all factory, but locating the motor and switch will be the best way to tell for sure.

    I certainly didn't mean the sticker..:rolleyes:

    looking at the rear diff is the best, but having the "RR DIFF LOCK" button is a dead give-away too

    and btw my '01 TRD came w/ Tokico shocks from the factory soo.. did yours come w/ Bilsteins?

    Yea mine came with the blue/yellow bilsteins but deffinatly the best way is to look for the locking motor on the rear diff and the button

    TRD double cabs came with the Tokico shocks. TRD extra cabs and standard cabs came with the blue/yellow Bilstein shocks. You had to have the V6 to get the elocker. 4 cylinder TRDs only came with upgraded shocks, no elocker.
