    Yeah, looks like the one I used. Post up if you have any more questions. I may have put more details in the cheap/free mod thread in my sig. Took some experimenting on my part to get the right ends of the wires. Let me know! I can take some more pics if needed.

    What kinds of speeds are allowed with this mod. I understand off road, snow, ect. Just don't know if sustained higher speeds is recommended?

    Use good judgment. There is no physical limit that will shut it off. But if you're running 80mph down the highway, do you really need the locker on? Or ABS disabled (because it's turned off when the locker is engaged)? It's just like a posi or solid rear axle. You can powerslide easily whether you want too or not. I've used it to slide around in mud, but I wasn't going mroe than 30mph if that. Snow is another matter. If you're off on a trail or in a field that's fine. If you're on a road where the back end kicking out can hit a car, slide off the road, hit a guard rail, etc then you need to be careful about it. It'll build up heat and stress on the tires, axles, gears, etc if you use it on anything other than a straight line. Toyota designed it to get you out of a situation where 1 rear tire is off the ground. Not run around 24x7 locked. So just keep that in mind.



    The banks are identical. Two pins are for the coils (guessing the 2 rotated 90*), 12v and ground toggle both sides at the same time. Then each side has an input and 2 outputs to switch between. Look at the top of the relay for that schematic, and match it with the images in this or the cheap/free thread.

    You should be able to match it with this diagram: http://s82.photobucket.com/albums/j...iew&current=2005LockerModWrite-up_Page_1b.png

    A and B are the 2 inputs, A1/A2/B1/B2 are the outputs that are switched.

    That relay should be setup identically to the middle relay in the diagram above. Does that help?

    The couple of issues I knew about were from incorrect modding. What have you heard?

    Just one of the first people to do it had issues with 4wd or something... It was a while back since I stopped watching the thread. Looks like TN is finally back up so maybe I'll read through to see what the problem was.

    Yeah, I was thinking about Fortech's post:

    But I guess it sorted itself out... I unsubscribed at one point so I wouldn't be reading grumpyoldman's crap.
