@fjfjfj might be able to help. Unless he sold it he has a 83 JDM BJ46 with the vacuum operated 4WD. Not sure when since 72 was last time Toyota imported a vacuum operated 4WD but switched from a mechanical to electric in the 40 series.

I'll post a picture mine when I get home but it's a 1980 BJ44 VL with locking hubs and the FD pull switch, lights up red.

Cool!! I've never seen this style of FD knob before. Thank you for sharing.

On an early cruiser, i had the plastic FD knob. When friends asked what it was for....I'd say "Oh the FD knob? It's for when s$%& gets real and you approach a F$&%ing Disaster....you pull that knob."
