    So I've gotten stuck twice in the sand in my 2wd prerunner and I'm thinking of getting a locker. I wanted to see if any of you have experience with certain brands/ types aside from the Toyota e-locker. Or recommendations based on my situation. I mostly drive on road but plan on off-roading more. Mainly desert stuff and fire roads. Nothing too crazy. Oh, and I plan on upgrading to a mid travel kit and 285's. Thanks

    ARB are good.

    or...

    traction mats for sand (maxtrax or tred 4x4)
    get a decent portable air compressor like the viair 88p so you can air down on sand and air back up afterward (around 60 bucks)
