Putting a front locker is on my future wish list, if I can get a unit that just drops in my housing with almost factory resemblance I'm in. Not sure why everyone is so caught up on the whole not having support thing, your basically putting in a Toyota Tacoma E-locker diff in the front vs the rear of the car. To me it's no different than guys wiring up their rear E-lockers to activate any time they want it

I don't think you understand differentials and lockers, but that's okay.

If you're referring to me I know a little bit more about cars than the average joe. I think we're all missing the point of the OP idea behind all this. He's obviously willing to shell out the money to see if this will work but is asking us for some help on data to prove him otherwise. Good luck OP and and keep us updated. Also sub'd the thread

There isn't, I was referring to the one OP found for Toyota Hilux on the other side of the world.

The real question is which would be cheaper in the long run? ARB in the front with the price of the air system or this e-locker. If the ARB is cheaper there's no reason to get the e-locker in my opinion since you'd also get the benefits of having an onboard air system too.

on top of this, no ones even thrown out what axles you'll need, how its going to bolt up, and how to actuate it.


Someones got some good pipe dreams here, but unless its plug and play, which it wont be, no one will buy it.


Nonetheless....

I thought some FJC's were available with a front locker. Maybe not.

Just get an ARB and call it a day. I have had mine for quite a while now. Never had ANY issues. The front (non-modified) CVs on the second Gen Taco are very strong. I have had it locked with the wheels cranked all the way over, in Aftershock (Part of the hammers Trails). Never had an issue.

I doubt it would be any harder to wire up than a compressor. You just add a switch and probably some relays to activate it. Sure it isn't going to wire in like the rear e-locker, but it should still be pretty easy after some research on what the locker needs from the ecu, etc before it will lock (if it even needs any of that).

Well,
I have two questions that the OP should try to answer before shelling out the money for a trial.

#1, The Elocker rear is well known to be weaker than the "8.4" version with an ARB insert for the rear. Would the same be true of the front? If so = no go.

#2, The front diff on the Tacoma lacks proper bearing support of the axle, which can cause vibrations on lifted trucks. The addition of an ARB provides all the supported needed. Would the Elocker version still have the bearing problem, or has that been fixed in the Hilux axle? If it does have the problem will the ECGS bushing fit?

In my mind, if either of these things has a negative answer the project is still born

The part numbers for the 05+ HiLux and 05+ Tacomas are the same here.. So I would assume they would work..

Air systems suck up here in the cold winters.. I am a H.E.T. in a mine and I spend my winters thawing out air systems..

I am with Ghost on this. An E-Locker would be my preference as well..

Now is there one that will fit the rear of an TRD Sport DCLB??
