    super easy setup, not real noisy compared to others,(except aussie locker,very quiet) cons....semi weak..because its only as strong as the factory open diff case you drop it into. i took mine out for a stronger full case locker. was in jeep not a taco. i think your gonna haved to look at the older toyota pickups to get any real reviews. i havent heard of many taco guys running them on here. http://www.offroaders.com/tech/lock-right-locker.htm

    bgdeer1, you're killing me. You've got like 10 threads on this topic.

    I thought you already bought one.

    This is true but as far as I can tell, you have no intentions of beating the hell out of your 2wd anyway. Strength is only an issue if you're seriously wheeling.

    You know the difference. We've told you the pros and cons a hundred times. You'll have more traction. Equivalent to a locked Prerunner. Locked Prerunners can for the most part go the same places an unlocked 4x4 can go.

    If you go back to my post you will see it says "for the most part". I did not say they are equal. I will say I've seen some locked 2wd trucks do some impressive shit. They can get it on pretty darned well with a skilled driver behind the wheel.

    no one has answered though.. i wanna hear from someone with a 4x2 and see what they have to say, anybody can give an opinion about stuff. I wanna hear from a fellow prerunner 4x2 wheeler. If you have nothing good to say then dont bother saying anything on my post...

    You are either the most unappreciative person I've ever been in communication with or you're just "special". Many many people have put in positive input and all you have done is complained that nobody is helping you. That takes some nerve.

    I have no idea what question you want answered. In any one of your multiple locker threads, any conceivable question has been answered multiple times. You have had the technical differences of each type of locker and LSD explained. You have heard the pros and cons of each traction system. You know what they will do for you and what they will not do for you.

    Perhaps you want someone just to tell you what to do. At this point you must know as much about these systems as anybody. Man up and make an informed decision. If not, call your mom, she'll tell you what to do.

    If you must continue asking the same questions, at least have the decency to continuously resurrect the threads you already have going on this topic. I'm sure the moderators would appreciate you not starting more new ones on the same thing.

    Is there anything else I can help you with?:) Have a nice day.

    Flame away, I've got my fire-retardant race suit on.:crapstorm:
