    That and I dont want to do 4.88s and then wish I had done the 5.29s later. Buy once, cry once. As far as how low they are, I think it will be fine as heavy as I am. My motor would probably thank me.

    Well my e-locker wouldnt work on yours or Id consider an extremely charitable price for you.

    Im not ruling out 34s or 35s in the more distant future.

    You can't defeat the ECU on 3rd gens to let you use the locker in low? Do I need to read the wiring diagram/service manual for them and sell this switch/wiring upgrade?

    First Aid in the wilderness is putting a bandage on. EMS in the wilderness will save you.

    To this point, no one has been able to do it. Below is a link to the most recent thread on it. There is another one somewhere with basically the same people and info. I think this one likely summarizes whats going on as well as the other significantly longer one. If you got the skills to make it happen, there will be MANY people that sing your praises for eternity, or at least until the 4th gens come out.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/successful-locker-anytime-mod.591754/

    I would certainly be included in those singing the praises as you would save me a grand.

    You should be able to trick the computer that controls the locker with a false low range signal and get a locker at any time. Also, ARB doesn't make a locker for that application.

    I'd honestly skip the ARB all together.

    That would make it cheaper certainly. And I have no intentions of using the front except in controlled playing situations. I guess a limited slip in the front would be a close second place.

    I thought they had come out with one for the 8.75" diff now? Maybe I was wrong. Might explain why the vendor hasnt gotten back to me.

    If all that is the case, then I could probably be ready even sooner as the build just got significantly cheaper. Do you like the Nitro gears ok? I have always used Yukons in the past but there werent as many options then.

    0 as in zero. Never got around to buying one as I don't have a huge need for a front locker. Rear locker and a-trac is more than enough for the kind of trouble I want to get into with my 4runner. I will say, once locked in the rear, the a-trac has to work very little to get the front to lock up and doesn't de-tune like it did with the open rear.

    Guess you guys were talking front lockers. I am thinking harrop for the rear or should I look into a FJ cruiser rear?

    ^Read that post up there for why I don't feel the need for a front locker^

    I quit using Yukon in the mid 2000s when they had a huge quality drop. Have not given them too much thought after that. I prefer Nitro or Revolution in most cases.

    Meh, do the 8" cheap and see if you're a driver that like to break ring and pinions before spending much money on it. I'm about 1 diff every 3 years so I'm looking to upgrade

    Well I just keep getting the warm fuzzys today. Managed to save 2 grand on air lockers and I trust your thoughts on the Nitros. Looks like my ordering process just got easier and cheaper!

    Sorry. Does anyone have a Marlin Crawler Tacobox (additional t-case) in a 1st gen? Looks like a Tacobox runs around $2200 by itself alone. How much does a Tacobox install cost when all is said and done, assuming I took it somewhere to have someone install it? $3k? More?

    Is the 4.70:1 gear ratio the recommended ratio to get in a Tacobox?

    My application would be an '04 DCSB V6 TRD.

    Thx.
