prerunner with rear locker diff

I have an 03 Tacoma prerunner and was wondering if I could put a rear locker? I thought it could b possible so I went to a junkyard to see how much parts run and the shop manager said that I wouldn't b able to do it. Is this true?

Hm I don't think you can without replacing the entire axle. So you would need an axle out of a TRD truck, the locker actuator, and wiring harness I believe.

At that point, you may as well just go for an aftermarket like ARB or Detroit or something.

yeah just go with an ARB air locker. the onboard air will come in handy for other things as well.

Powertrax no-slip $4-500 + install. Mine works f'n great, but an ARB is unbeatable if you want to spend $1500+.

Well thats what i meant. You'll have to swap the whole axle for a TRD locker. The open diffs are different then the TRD ones.

Or yes you could just get an ARB. Much more expensive but stronger and OBA is cool and nice to have. should be around 800-1200 bucks.

TRD axle will run anywhere from 200-500 bucks.

The e-locker 3rd won't fit in a stock trd axle..without modifying the housing.

You'll need to modify the housing or buy the entire axle assembly..or at least the housing and the 3rd member. Don't quote me but I'm 95% sure the splines are the same on the carrier for the e-locker as the splines on your trd axle shafts.

ARB is $1000

Rofl $850 used for a housing modified for a e-locker? just the housing? if so fucking rip off lol, if it's entire axle..that's a DECENT price if it's in good condition and has gears in it..if not, complete rip off.

I can have a buddy do it for $100 and you can find e-lockers for $200-400 with the actuators..

Marlin and Pirate FTMFW.
and Pull and Save

yea the guy said i would have to swap out the entire axle and do some other things but i guess i can go for an aftermarket one. I saw some companies you mentioned but not sure what to go with. What do you guys recommend for me, i dont do trail very much the truck is a DD so what would you recommend i go with as far as the aftermarket lackers are concernd

it seems to me like there is more work i must do with finding the trd parts than by just going aftermarket, and it also seems cheaper to go aftermarket or am i wrong
