You can do this:

or you can piece one together yourself like this

What I did was buy the toyota wiring harness so I could use the plug and have a nice interface with the elocker. Cut off the wire and solder my own wires to it which lead to the switch.

And then I followed this wiring diagram.

Google has lots more info.

Excellent info, thank you for your effort. Do the 4th gen instrument cluster have a separate "locked" indicator, similar to the landcruisers? I think I heard that a certain 4th gen came with a rear locker from the factory so I assume there is a bulb socket w/o a bulb in it. This is what happens in the 80 series landcruiser as well.

The 2009 Trail Edition had a rear locker, but the light took the place of the DAC light in the cluster. So unfortunately there's no smooth way to integrate a rear locker light in the cluster that looks totally OEM.

That being said, if you find a way to do it, let me know.

Would I be able to use a third member from any Toyota E Locker vehicle that came with 3.73 gears? I have a 2005 V8 4x4 4Runner with the 3.73 gears and after doing some research it seems that all the automatic transmission and E Locker equipped 2nd Gen Tacomas, FJ Cruisers, and 5th Gen 4Runners came with 3.73 gears. Please correct me if I am wrong on that info, but does that mean I can search for a third member from any one of those vehicles?

I know this is an old post, but I used information from this thread to install an FJ locker into my 4th gen over the weekend and thought I’d post a few installation notes from my experience:

• When using the gasket to locate and mark where to grind and drill, make sure you use the correct side. There is a right way and a wrong way…

• Better yet, after you’ve used the gasket to mark where to clearance the housing for the locker assembly and ground that out, fit the new third member into the housing before you drill the holes for the studs. The gasket can shift around a little and scribing where the holes need to go directly from the third member vs. using the gasket will be more accurate.

• You’re going to be able to get the drill a lot more perpendicular to the housing if it’s removed vs. in the truck. I had trouble with two of my holes not being straight, probably because I was lying on my back underneath the truck doing it.

• If you do choose to leave the housing in the truck, you don’t need to remove the e-brake assembly. You can cut small notches in the brake line mounting tabs on the backing plates to get the lines free which will allow you to slide the axles out of the carrier enough to pull the third member. This saves a lot of time on reassembly.

• Inspect your axle seals and be prepared to replace them if they’re leaking. Good time to do this while everything is apart.

• Buy replacement studs, nuts and washers for everything, not just the longer two. All but one of the studs came out with the nuts when I removed the old third member. It would have been a lot easier to just replace them with new ones, plus the OEM ones have thread sealer already on them.
