Hey, Thanks. All I am going to do is to run power thru toggle. I am not too worried about the light in the dash.
When I get all done, on one side of my jeep it will have sticker that says
"RUBICLONE"
And on the other side it will say
"SAHARACON"

I.E. can I just run a wire to it, VIA a toggle switch on the dash, from any 12VDC power source, to lock it in?? Or is it some electronic gizmo that HAS to go through the ECM??
Thanks in advance

It is not needed but so you will more than likely just hook up the connection on top of the differential housing to a toggle switch and leave the threaded looking connector disconnected. It is located just above centerline and on the backside of the left side of the differential housing.

Imped It's not ECM-controlled. Just need a 12V power switch and as long as it comes with the pigtail, you're good. At least that's how things went with the last JK axle swap I took part in.
