Hi, Welcome to the forum.

Locking diff showed up mid 90's as an option on the FZJ80

All 80 series have a center locking differential (91-92 have a switch, 93+ are automatic when put in 4lo, no switch), the FZJ80 from 93-97 had a front/rear electric locker as an OEM option. The front/rear locker switch is a rotary dial to the left of the steering wheel, on the dash.

Electric Locking Differential years...

Hi,

I know that 94-97 have the rotating switch to the left of
the steering wheel to lock the rear or front and rear.

Does anyone know what years have the electric front and rear locking differentials for any of the newer years, or did
the electric locking diffs only have a switch for those years?

If the newer models do not have switches for front and rear lockers, are they still just as capable off road?

I know enough to know that lockers vs non-lockers is no comparison....lockers all the way baby.

after 97, landcruisers went to the 100 series which saw some powertrain improvements, but lost the solid front axle... personally i'd stick to the 93-97 rigs.

IIRC 98 and 99's 100 series rigs had an electronic locking rear as an option.

for the auto locking center diff you can buy a switch that allows you to lock the diff in 4-h and 4-L it also allows you to be in low with an open diff.

To be in 4low with the center diff open, you need to do what's called the "7-pin mod", adding the switch alone won't allow this.

In other markets, the 80 series got locking F&R diffs right from the get-go, my '91 HDJ81 has 3x locking diffs from factory.

There were cable lockers in JDM 60 series as well.

If you are referring to the Yellow light that comes on when you press the center diff lock button (or putting it in L4), that only locks the transfer case, i.e. locks front and rear driveshafts together. Some Cruisers had a locker option that locks the differentials, it would be a dial on the lower left side of the dash.
