Went to put a elocker in my 95 5 lug ( which from research i though was an 8") got all the parts to make the conversoin. Got a locker out of a 99 tacoma pre runner, and the locker is smaller them my current 3rd member. Any suggestions of where to go from here. Dont want to change to 6 lug but want a locker and gears... ?

Get the axle from the 99, or take back the locker for a refund.

Get the whole rear axle out of a prerunner with e locker. Ether have your shafts redrilled to 5 lug, have custom 5 lug shafts made, I have seen wheel spacer conversions before, or sell me the e locker really cheap.

Anyone know where I can have the shafts re drilled? Do they make a kit? Or if I replace the entire rear end can I use my axels to keep it 5 lug?

No one makes a kit, cannot swap axle shafts between housings. Trd axle is gonna be wider if you find one. Plenty of custom axle shops will make you custom shafts, possibly redrill stockers for you.

Or just run 6-lug wheels in the back?
