I've taken mine up to 60+mph locked...
As far as dealer issues, they probably wouldn't like to see their wires grounded to each other. But I never have issues since the truck isn't under warrantee. hehe

toyota made it only work to save themselves from lawsuits brought on by idiots who left the locker on at high speeds on the road...where a locked axle can be interesting. I have had them search through all the wiring down there to figure out what kept causing my tail light/gauge cluster fuse to blow and they never noticed the grey wire mod

You can drive over 5 MPH but are you sure that's such a good idea? You wouldn't want to accidentally leave the locker on and be driving down a wet windy road and end up in the drink with some pissed-off sand sharks.

If you get on pavement w/ the locker on and take a turn, you'll be instantly reminded that your locker is on by the noises your tires start making. In a turn an open rear end allows the outside tire in the turn to spin faster than the inside tire whereas when they are locked they can only go the same speed, so when you turn on pavement the tires start squallin where the inside tire wants to be going slower than the outside tire. Problem gets worse the sharper the turn, so on a windy road you'd really know...
