    Hey Fink,
    If you, Dan, and everyone else are OK with it, I can post a few pics/vids later today.

    You are open diffed like me. Once you remedy that though, your truck should be very capable. Your truck is lighter than the 2nd gens & it has great ground clearance. If I would have gone in that puddle I would have sunk into the sand lower than you.

    BTW, I still don't know what the hell I am going to do about mine. I know ARB is the top choice but it's a lot of extra stuff (air compressor, air line, solenoids, switches, & it involves drilling a hole in your diff). More things that can go wrong IMO. I was super close to having a Detroit True Trac installed but then I read about some people having the bolts back out of the diff after 10,000 miles or more. That concerns me also. I even considered looking for an E-locker complete axle (drum to drum) and buying a wiring kit for it. Those are hard to find too. I do not know what I am going to do or if I do anything at all.

    I also went online and found a company called Just Differentials that sells a completely new 8.4 3rd member, ready to drop in which that I can do, for $1600. That comes with the Heavy Duty TRD Limited Slip installed.

    Hello Fink,

    I posted this in the 2nd Gen section before I realized that there is a step-by-step on how to remove the diff.

    I still don't have the torque specs to re-attach all the bolts back. Do you know where I could find this?

    BTW, It's not a locker but it's good enough for what I do.

    Thanks bud!



    Hello Forum,

    I was VERY undecided on what to do with my open diff set-up. Well, thanks to this forum highly recommending East Coast Gear Supply I gave them a call & after a few minutes talking to them I went with this for my DCSB PreRunner 4.0 Auto:

    2008 TACOMA PRERUNNER NON ELD:
    Complete Assembled ECGS Differential Toyota 100, Tacoma with 3.73 R&P:
    $600.
    TT 913A541 True-Trac limited slip for Tacoma 8.4:
    $450.
    Lucas SAE 85W-140 Gear Oil:
    $7.50 x 3 quarts.
    TOTAL:
    $1072.50

    !!!!!DELIVER JANUARY 7TH THROUGH JANUARY 11TH!!!!!

    I do need help with a couple of things which I hope I can get from you folks.

    1) Torque Specs for all the bolts involved in the diff swap.

    2) I want to confirm the diff removal process & please let me know if I left anything out:
    * Drain gear oil,
    * Unbolt the 4 bolts behind each brake plate,
    * Unbolt the brake line brackets but I do not have to disconnect the line so I do not have to bleed the brakes,
    * Slide out the axles 3 to 4 inches each,
    * Unbolt the driveshaft,
    * Unbolt the nuts that hold the diff and pull it out,
    * Reverse the process.

    BTW, my truck has 51,000 miles. Is it a good idea to replace the axle seals since I'm in that area anyways? I do realize that if I replace the axle seals I will need to disconnect the brake lines and bleed the system.

    Thanks Forum [​IMG]
