Depends on the application for which you want to use your truck for, but for weekend warrior/commuter I would say ARB is the best

I would think the Elocker would be better for the weekend warrior. IMO less things to have to worry about. No compressor or airlines. all that stuff.

Im also looking for a one. Do you know what kind of Locker the Tacomas come with? ive been looking around for one and cant seem to find one. Im going to check out that Eaton tho.

If you guys are looking for an e locker check out ttora or a more Offroad oriented site and prey on 2nd gen tacos who are saving up about to go through with rear LT. Lots of them swap axles to tundra ones and sell their current ones. Or check salvage yards?

You have to weigh your options. Not really sure what you're asking here.

If you're considering buying a TRD Offroad axle (with toyota locker in it) - make sure it has the same exact gear ratio that you have. If it doesn't, then you'll be spending more money to regear so the front & rear match. Regearing isn't cheap and should be done by a professional. Also, hooking up the switches to make it engage/disengage and anything else you come across while installation.

Do some more research.

ARB's aren't cheap but you keep your current axle. You will need to pay for regearing because you're replacing the entire carrier inside the diff. You'll also need a small air compressor & air line. ARB lockers may sound complicated, but when they're installed properly - they're awesome. I had 2 of them in my jeep and never had any problems for 8 years. I highly recomment a professional install.

I would get the ARB. It engages faster and is stronger. I'd also rather worry about air lines than electronics.
