Let me get this straight before I get super excited on my choice...

For the Eaton TrueTrac LSD that will be a peg leg until it slips? Or does it run 50/50 to both wheels but adjusts according to turns on the road, gravel, slippage etc? Can someone please clarifiy the way the LSD works to ensure that I am not mistaken.

Thanks!

Janster, you got a point there.. it would be an easy fix when you can hear the air loss... never thought about that.. i know i have a meter, wire and some crimps with me when i got out... cuz you just never know. i guess both have their advantages and OBA is always a bonus...

I was just leaning aways from having 2 switches on my dash for the locker as the real estate is gettin thin

will i have to get a new carrier if i go with a locker, or can i just drop in a locker?

Scratch the whole Detroit truetrac idea .... Called them just now and they don't make it for our trucks yet. It's just not in the cards for me to get what I want.

Im running the TRD LS in the rear of mine. I got it put in before I picked up my truck. I was told it was different than the one in the TRD Spot package, and that the LS in the Sport package is a 2 pinion LS while the one I have is a 4 pinion LS. From what I have dug up, all the TRD LS diffs in the second gens are 4 pinion. Im happy with the LS so far. When I get a tire off the ground, It seems to transfer power pretty well. Maybe see if Torsen makes an LS diff for the Tacoma. They slip to a given point, but never allow 1 tire to receive all the torque.

I found this Eaton posi LSD on ebay. It is for the 8.4" 12 bolt rears (non TRD PreRunner, and 4x4). You could probably find this same LSD for about 50 bucks less.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/95-09...206169003r8606


Here is a Detroit TrueTrac I found on Jegs. The website claims it will only fit 95-05 Tacoma but I would check into that. It is also for the 8.4" 30 spline rear end. Does anyone know if it this will fit your 05+ 8.4 rears?

I'm pretty darn sure it is the '8.4' rear end. From what I have been told and read the 8.4 is actually a 8 inch ring gear but a beefier setup then the TRD '8'. The open 4x4 (non-TRD) '8.4' utilize the same rear differential setup as the PreRunner.


Can anyone add some incite into this? I am just repeating what I have been told from manufactures and some reputable sources on this site, although have not actually pulled my third member yet.


Bill Brasky looks like he is running this same rear, maybe he can chime in.



I'm starting to get confused my self... I need some backup on this one!

4x4's and Prerunners without the E locker have an 8.4" rear. The TRD Off Road (with the E-locker) has an 8", and a different houseing.

Hmm than Eaton must have there facts mixed up.. I called on Monday morning to find out what setup would be for my truck and the guy said that they haven't made one yet for my year and he mentioned that I have a 9.4 or something like that rear. I am going to call again tomorrow morning and hopefully talk to somebody else because he discouraged me!

What did you pay from the dealer? Did they sell just the LSD or did you have to buy the whole rear diff? I also looked into Torsen but unfortunately they don't make an aftermarket for our truck.

I cant remember what I paid for it. It was a little pricey.
