Ok, so I am looking to get the factory TRD Locker installed in my truck. Truck is a 2008 Pre-Runner Acess Cab 5spd manual SR5 model, no TRD packages and the 2.7L under the hood. I ran this idea by the salesman when purchasing the truck, and he replied, "I do not believe this is available in the 4 cyl Tacomas" but what the hell do they know? The axle is identical to what the 4x4's are equipped with and i don't see why this wouldn't be possible.
I have considered putting a ARB Air Locker into the truck, but have been somewhat deterred due to the need of an on board air supply. I want to keep things as simple as possible, 'factory', and be able to take it into the dealer anywhere in the country if something goes wrong.
Any estimates on cost either? I wouldn't imagine it could be over 700-900 installed.. I have the tools and knowledge to this my self too, if the dealers rates are not feasible, being that it wont be warrantied no matter how I do it. Some help on this would be much appreciated!
