That's the beauty of this mod, the front driveshaft *doesn't* spin. I ran this mod for a year before the axle swap and have been running is ever since. It's especially nice after the swap because I have an automatic locker in the front, so when it's grumpy and doesn't want to let my steer, I can just press the button and with the loss of power to the front axle, I get my steering back :)

Yes. This is transparent to lockers, TRD locker included, if you have already done the "gray wire" locker mod.

OK, were the kittens the installation crew for this mod on your truck...?

Yes! And they were a big help. Well, except for the one that got into the starting fluid early in the day. It was down hill from there for him... ;)

Allows the use of low range on the transfer case without engaging the "Automatic Disconnecting Differential" or "ADD" for four-wheel drive.

Applicable to "push button" 4x4 models.
Someone asked if this would work for a manual in an earlier post so now I'm confused a little. I have the same year truck as you just the manual 5-speed transmission.

It looks like it would work for me since i have the push button 4-hi, 4-lo, 2hi stick. But just want to make sure before I go out there and mess around with it. Thanks WATRD!

He was talking about the non-push button xfer cases, not the tranny.

As far as I am aware, this mod will work for any Tacoma with the push-button 4x4 system, regardless of the tranny type.

There is another mod for two-low on non-push button 4x4 Tacoma's, but I am having a heck of a time finding the write up for it anywhere.

Thanks, :)
Sorry about the late reply, I am still getting used to the new board and skipped right by your post. There is a mod that works for the manual tcase rigs, but I am having a heck of a time finding a write up for it. If I recall correctly, the connector was on the other side of the tranny.

Okay, that makes sense to me. It's too easy not to try out! :D

I have the non-push button, 4cyl add tacoma and I did the two low mod. My driveshaft still spins. It worked really well until I locked the front end. Now I can still unlock one wheel, but my driver side wheel always spins. So that essentially turned it into a 3-low mod. It does make turning a little easier and helps a little bit when traversing across an incline.

Find that writeup yet becuase I sure cant and would like it... even some info from an FSM would work for me.

There's a light blue plug that comes out of the passenger side of your transfer case. It has two wires, I just interrupted one of them with a switch. I actually went and got a push button shift knob from a scrap yard and used that as my switch.

Wouldn't this plug be the easier of the two mods anyway, especially for a manual tranny? I would rather unplug something than cut wires while I'm under warranty.
