Very very few 2.7 manual trucks came with a locker. So general no.
If you are wondering if you have one, look for a box sticking off the rear diff housing and a "rr diff lock" button left of the steering wheel.

I would bet my house that you dont have one. They are incredibly rare on the 2.7 and i've only seen two examples on all of the internet. (and I've seen the entire internet)

Yes OP, an aftermarket locker can be added.


"make the one that's already on there lock" isn't super clear about adding a locker.

I have a truetrac, which isn't a "locker" per-say but I love it.

Most are "lunchbox" style lockers where there is a mechanical lock between a set of flat facing gears when a certain amount of power is applied. When not on the gas the gears are able to skip teeth allowing one wheel to spin a different speed than the other (this gives the click click click noise most have) Also the truetrac is a good option as it has good road manners and seems to transfer quite a bit of torque even when a wheel has little traction.

^ it means it locks up when under throttle load...
and releases when there is no throttle load.

the release allows for differentiation
when maneuvering thru turns.

release commonly produces a ratcheting/clicking noise
as the vehicle goes around a sharp turn.

Occasionally it will bind or not release quickly enough
and can surprise the driver with a loud bang and chassis jerk.

Nothing is likely broken...
but occasionally it will sound as if something did !? Lol

If the road surface is oily wet...
the rig could swap ends pushing hard thru a turn...
if yer lousy at throttle control.
