Is there a center lock in the Tundras?

    I am wondering about a center diff lock capability on a Tundra. I had my LandCruiser that had lockers in front and rear and the center. The center diff lock would lock the front diff and the rear diff. I have not found any mention of this as an option for the Tundra.

    There was many a time that I did not need to lock the front or rear but when I came to something that caused a wheel spin you simply tap the center diff button and it would lock the front to the rear and problem solved.

    Center diff? Tundra has 4WD transfer case mounted to the transmission. When the knob is turned to 4WD, the transfer case is engaged and power is sent to the front wheels. The rear differential is not a locker...Toyota uses "LSD" which simulates limited slip differential with braking.
