    Traded in my 2008 Tacoma for 2012. Had to get under it and check it out. Noticed a yellow hose that ended up going to the rear brake housings and into each front brake housing also. I am sure that this was not on my 2008. My guess is that it is for the brake activated limited slip. Does anyone know? I read my owners manual, and did a search for "yellow" to no avail. This hose enters kind of low into the rear housing. Seems vulnerable to me. Thank you.

    Wheel speed sensor wire. It's very fragile, so no zip ties. Shielded wires + zip ties on a wire that should be able to move freely, is not a good thing

    It sits above the axle. If you find a way to get that caught I think that wire will be the least of your worries.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about it.
