    from what I can tell, it just extends the shift points in an automatic(holds them out further)

    It moves the shift points of the tranny higher. The engine revs higher before it shifts to the next gear, usually used for towing or when extra "umph" is needed.

    for the diff lock, you can use it as fast as you want, but not on dry pavement. you must be going under 5 mph to engage it. but once it's engaged your good to go

    Electronically Controlled Transmission. Holds out the gears longer.

    Yep. It holds gears longer, builds more pressure in the transmission, and I think it advances timing further too.
