I may have asked this question about converting a regular p/u to a prerunner.


Now all I want to know is a regular 2wd truck, can I install something like a detroit locker or some other bread to have 2WD.

Yes....

You gotta know exactly what you want. There are many different types of 'lockers' (so to speak).

Do you want a full locker?
Do you want a limited slip?
Do you want selectability?
What's your budget and how much you want to spend?

and

What are you looking for in a locker? What do you plan on using it for?

Sorry for all the questions - but when people ask a question like this, it's hard to explain when we don't know exactly what you're looking for and we also don't know if you are familiar with the differences.

Eaton/Detroit does not currently have a locker or Limited Slip Differential that they recommend for the 05+ Toyota Tacomas. I have called them and got disappointing results.

Currently ARB has the best locker for the Tacomas (4 or 6 cylinder), but I am not sure I want to spend $1200 for the complete setup. Hopefully Detroit/Eaton will come out with a good one soon.

Cheers!

I got this from another forum. Gadget is a very very reliable source.

YES!!!

The TrueTrac that fit the pre 05 8.4" Taco diffs also fits the 8.4" diff in the XRunner. Works great!!!

So, with that info, any diff that fit the earlier 8.4 diffs will also fit the new ones like the ARB and so on.

I think the pre-runner uses a different rear assemble than the X-Runner.
