You ever drive on snow? That's where folks tend to have the biggest "awshit" moments with the auto-lockers. Otherwise it's just the odd skidding tire around a sharp turn.

My two cents is if you're paying for the labor and parts anyway, may as well upgrade to ARB. Then you'll run the air line and you'll be set to lock the front if you ever choose to do so.

Ah. Skip the part where I talked about locking the front up, then. :-)

Detroit makes a good product. Check out Powertrax to save some money. In the end it comes down to selectable or not.

damn, that sucks. Yeah im thinking that will be my best bet.

Does anybody have info on how the non selectable detroit locker works on the road? I think it would be a bit annoying having it on all the time while offroading in the desert..

Also for a selectable locker, when its off does it act like an LSD? I dont know much about it so it might be a dumb question but basically when the locker is off will both tires spin evenly?
The ARB unit would need air lines, a compressor or air source and wiring. An elocker(if there is on for the 8.4) would need wiring. Other than that no cons.

A selectable locker is open when unlocked. It works fine for the street though. The only locker that is a LSD when unlocked is the Auburn Gear ECTED but they don't make it for Toyotas.

Check out http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/ or if you want to have it done http://yotamasters.com/ in Corona can do it.

i would not recemmend non selectable lockers for DD use. it will engage while turning a corner, scary when in wet traction enviroment. and as mentioned above..will suck ass in the snow while driving on the highway. i have Detroits front/rear on my MonkeyCrawler so i can speak from actual experience in having non selectable lockers.

if you are serious about a rear locker then i would recemmend an ARB, you cannot loose with an ARB locker. aside from setting up the actual locker in the 3rd member everything esle is easy to setup. the wiring harness for the ARB is absolutly foolproof..anyone can do it

also known as lock-rights..they are the cheapest version of a non selectable locker that you can buy. they have a big bad reputation for being weak and breaking even under easy loads on the locking mechanism. i wouldnt even consider a lock-right locker, not even for my bigwheels lol.

I said it right the first time.

True. I have a locker and I rarely use it but mostly because I don't wheel to much anymore. On the street having an open diff sucks because if I go around a corner and touch the gas it will one tire fire and TRAC will kick in making my engine sound retarded. At the same time if I get into wheeling again a locker is a valuable too.

If you decide not to go with a locker you might want to consider the Detroit TruTrac (mechical limited slip) It works great on and off road and IMO its the closest thing to a full locker. I wish they made one for the front diff.

I would go with what Monkey said. He seems to know his shiznit. I would rather have one tire fire than an unpredictable locker.
