    Any 05 and up 4wd Tacomas with optional TRAC/VSC and all 09 and up 4wd Tacomas. It lets you use TRAC when in 4wd low so it acts like a LSD on all 4 tires.

    You have an offroad so ATRAC works in the same way just more quickly and it is more powerful.

    Umm, the Yellow wire mod (4-low trac mod)... is for NON-ATRAC equipped 4WD Tacomas 2009 +. It tricks the truck into thinking it is in high range (where there is TRAC limited slip) when it is in low range... so you get the benefits of limited slip in Low Range. Otherwise only the Off Road TRDs have traction control in low range.

    It may work on pre-2009 4WD Tacomas that have TRAC.

    A much simpler answer: YES.

    I'd love to do this mod, but will it work on a 2012 standard cab 4x4?
