    I would like to know this as well. Is there also a way to lock only 3 wheels and not all 4? Will this mod work if driving upside down? Where can I purchase the key to unlock it, or is it a combination lock?

    Thanks

    No - It will not effect the indications on the dash (or at least it hasn't for me)

    The RR DIFF LOCK light goes solid when the lock is engaged. If it is flashing you need to slow down so it can engage. Also the ABS light comes on solid meaning it is disabled.

    Did it to my 99 5 speed 2.7 a while back and nothing changed other than when I put it in 4lo the rear locks automatically. In 2wd I can push the button and it just blinks. Can't remember if it does anything in 4hi. Any ideas?

    They are rare but they were offered for one (maybe two) years when the TRD package was first introduced in the Tacoma.

    That would be correct. Ya gotta have a locker! If it doesn't have the differential locking switch on the left ya don't have the E locker.
