    You already have a limited slip differential. I'm a first gen, so I'm not sure how it would work for you because you have a lot more electronics then I do. I think you would want a TRD Off Road axle if you wanted a locker, because that's what it is for the first gen, but I think it may be different for you. I think they did away with all the mechanical lockers and limited slips and went to electronically lockers and limited slips.

    nothing gained unless you want the elocker from the trd off road like said above ^^^ you might as well just put an arb locker in there if you want a locker or a detroit trutrac if you was a mechanical limited slip instead of the electronically limited slip (auto lsd)
