I been waiting way too long to try this out. Just want to clearify that if you haven't done the grey wire locker mod, your TRD locker will not engage.WATRD said:Yes. This is transparent to lockers, TRD locker included, if you have already done the "gray wire" locker mod.
WATRD said:With the switch in the up position, it grounds out the gray wire for the locker mod, allowing the locker to function in all xfer case positions. I did that so that if someone else drives my truck, the locker cannot be accidentally engaged while they are on road
WATRD said:To be perfectly clear, the switch goes to ground, not to 12 volts...
Yes, you still have to be below 5mph to engage or disengage the locker. Beyond that, I am not sure I understand your question.
I apologize for the confusion. What I meant was that with the seperate switch hooked up to the locker, you can by pass the some time trouble some stock switch. Because as stated in the rear lock mod section http://www.ttora.com/wiki/index.php/Rear_Locker, you sometimes have roll forward or reverse for a short distance before the locker engages.WATRD said:I am confused about where you are confused. Locking and unlocking the locker over 5mph is really hard on it. Yes, you could bypass the stock ECU all together and install that switch, but it still not a going to be a good idea to lock it over 5mph, so all you have done is removed the safety factor the stock ECU provides.
The switch I was referring to doesn't replace the stock switch, just enables it. Off the locker only works in 4-lo, on and the locker works in all positions. But, the engaged disengage safety remains in effect. Of course, once it's engaged, it will remain thus at any speed...
