I may be wrong here but i think the tacoma is an 8.4 diff if not elocked already.

If you have an elocker its a direct swap. The elockers are all 8" including the high pin FJ80 ones.

You have a few options to make it work...Find an axle with the same WMS- WMS (wheel mount surface)distance that had an elocker or one that is 8" and mod the housing. or a TG housing and shafts to match. Diamond axle and ruff stuff also have housings. Ruff stuff if i remember correctly doesnt cut an elocker mount plate so a v6 would be the best one to modify.

If all thats too much trouble then id say a youkon zip locker or arb is your best bet

Pretty much. Not really feasible to custom fit the e-locker 3rd into a non-elocker housing. The e-locker 3rds between Taco and FJ are the same though. As well as the "8.4" 3rds between the two but the e-locker and "8.4" don't really mix.

I was meaning a non elocked 8" housing. I have seen some guys either use FJ80 housings and run that locker...But i think the rear is bigger...dont quote me on that part. Or run a later v6 housing and run 1.5" spacers to make up the difference if they cant find a taco housing.
