I am looking at a complete 3rd member for my '08 DCSB Prerunner 4.0. It has an open diff so I am looking to add some traction that I can install myself. If I am correct, installing the complete diff just involves unbolting of the drive shaft, unbolting and sliding out the rear axles, & of course, removing the diff. Is this correct?
I do not have computer access so I can't post pics but do this:
Google: just differentials
click on: Toyota
click on: Custom 3rd members
click on: Toyota custom 3rd members
click on: 8.4 Rear, T100 , Tacoma 4x4 & Prerunner, Tundra, Sequoia
choose: gear ratio (3.73)
choose: solid or crush sleeve (solid)
choose: traction aid (Heavy Duty TRD Eaton LSD)
Rather pricey but I don't have to pay someone to install it. Unless anyone has any other suggestions or recommendations. I think this is cheaper than an ARB and less extra gadgets. I know ARB is Top Dog but I have to pay someone to install that also.
Also, when you see the gear choices, not all of them have an extra charge. Is there a gear ratio that is reasonably close to the 3.73's that I can use with my 265/75r16 BFG A/T's or do I stick with the 3.73's?
Thanks for your help in advance!
