Rear Differential Install Question
Hi Everyone, I'm currently in the process of looking to buy a 1st gen dc taco and was wondering if I ended up buying a non-TRD off road package truck would it be hard to install a rear locker in the truck and about how much would it run $$ wise. Thanks

depends on what kind of lock you want.
You can install an auto locker like a lock rite (cheapest-$300-$500)
You can find a junkyard locker out of a TRD and swap in the entire axle (moderate price-$400-$1000, depending on where/what/how you find a locker/axle from another Taco)
Or you can get an ARB locker and OBA (on board air) (most expensive, $900 for locker and around $500 for OBA)

My advice, if it's not to late, would be to get a truck with the E-Locker already in it. I just finished up on putting a toyota 4runner E-Locker in my 2000 2.7L Tacoma.
I had to use a 4runner E-locker 3rd member with the matching gears ($600) and a 1st gen E-Locker Tacoma axle housing ($150). I tested the E-Locker before I put it in my truck so I know it works. The last thing I need to do is the wiring to a switch in my cab. Don't forget about purchasing new inner and outer seals for the axles, 3rd member gasket, nuts and bolts, paint and gear oil.
I used this site quite a bit. http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/tech/electric_locker/
