    OH MAN, What a can of worms you just opened lol, there's alot of differing opinions on this. IMO, I think they (Toyota) had intended it to be for low RPM ,HIGH torque slow going at least for the TRD 4X's anyway (which I agree with) but I don't drive mine any faster that 15MPH (or so) when the diff is engaged Also I don't know why you'd have it on if going faster anyway, oh well, get ready for about 100 different replies.......:D

    x2. Unless you have money thats just taking up space. Then by all means, drive locked full time.

    I would advise figuring out how differential works, how a locker works, and take it from there. Then youll understand how different conditions/situations affect your truck when locked or unlocked
