Front IFS Diff Locker

Ok guys, I have searched and serched and have found nothing, Besides an ARB and an auto locker is there an Elocker that would fit with little to no moddification? I have a rear Elocker but need to regear. I was looking and may be onto something with switching out a Hilux front IFS diff and they have lockers for those but not sure if its a plug and go. Thoughts/suggestions... this is not to be a pissing contest or a "JUST USE ARB" thread. Im on the hunt for an answer for this once and for all. I am willing to put my truck up on the block to use as a test dummy. Without solid axle swap of course.

I doubt it would be easy and would probably require a lot of work to get an a Hilix diff up front.
I'm gonna say it, ARB would probably be cheaper and less work than swapping in a whole new custome diff just to run a different locker than a proven classic.

stumbled upon even more promising info, the 05+ tacoma has the same IFS as the perado 120/150 which in turn are the same as the 05 Hilux.... thus meaning that elocker posed above ^^^ will work bolt in and wire and go...

from the link, that looks like its for a rear diff, the front diff in the 2gen is what they consider [or call] a clamshell design, meaning the two halves of the carrier hold the center section, its not a dropout as in the rear

if it was the same, there would be lots of companys out there making reverse cut gears so we could put e-lockers in the front diff

just go with ARB, the air lockers are proven, and taken a chance to possibly be SOL

Without recommending that you install the ARB, I can recommend you use their research.

Check and see if the ARB part number for the front Tacoma IFS is the same as the part number for the other model(s) you're looking at. If it is - you know you're golden. If it isn't - you may not be SOL, as the variation may be in relatively minor areas like wiring harness, installation instructions, etc...

I'd go with ARB and then you have support on this side of the world if your locker shits out on you. The e-locker may very well fit but I'd also wonder how robust it is.

I can see that the hilux would be the same as ours, cause toyota is not gonna re-engineer a minor part like a diff for a different country for basically the same truck.

Here is a flaw I see, as already pointed out. If it doesnt work correctly, who is going to know how to fix it? No support structure here in the states would put me off considering the $ spent on it

Is heard bad things about ifs and lockers. I am doing it though. Any input? No different than solid axle lockers I would think? Don't turn sharp...or at all...with it locked. Any other input?
