O.K. Here is my first newb ? I am taking my rig off road for the first time this weekend. So I needed to know when to use the locker & if there are any speed restriction. I have used the search option, but I didn't find what I was looking for. I don't really know what my 2WD is capable of, so if any other two wheel guys can send me some pics, I would be very gratefull.

First, Welcome Noob!

Your Pre-Runner doesn't have the same type of restictions that the 4x4 has stock for using the locker. Push the button, give it a moment to lock up and you are good to go as fast or slow as you desire.

You should lock up any time there is a chance that you might lift a rear tire or otherwise spin a rear tire. Your two-wheel drive is remarkably capable, just take your time to learn what it can do and improve your skills as you learn what it can do.

Also I would have a buddy go with you in another truck so if you do get stuck someone is there to pull you out. Other than that see what you can do and have fun!!

Mine would take up to 30 seconds to engage. You also might have to roll a few feet once the button is pressed to get the locker engaged. If not, my damn prerunner is just wierd...

and watch out for thick mud. i just got home from being stuck and i got BFG AT's and some kinda posi unit in my rig. if you are worried either back away before you get stuck or just go for broke and haul ass and hope you dont break something. with 2wd you really just gotta keep the momentum going.
