    so i was just playing with diff lock on my ’07 DC SB TRD 4x4 off road. and from what i can tell. my diff lock works in 2wd 4wd and 4low. and i thought the JUST worked in 4low? so i took a video with my phone. and FYI i have done NO MODS to make it do this. i thinks it’s the yellow wire mod? not sure because i have not looked in to doing to much.

    ok hears video. http://youtu.be/NHvp4Vyf_NE

    so is it working in 2wd 4HI and 4low??

    In L4, there is no flashing or beeping when you are engaged... and as everyone above said... flashing diff. lock light mean it is NOT engaged.

    The locker anytime mod requires a relay, and not just cutting a grey wire like the 1st. gen tacos.

    Between the owner's manual, the card in your sun visor pocket, and the sticker on your door... you can get a lot of how-to 4WD info. Naturally, you can just ask here, too... and get facts, fiction, and opinions on everything!
