    4.10 gears, sliders, lots of buttons, and yellow flashing lights on the dash.
    The Detroit is very similar to a Torsen diff. and uses worm gears. When torque is applied, the gears are pushed out against the case, and power is delivered to the wheel that is slipping.
    Though they say the diff doesnt "waer out" like other LS diffs, as it only applies a little amout of pressure to the case, it uses the case as opposed to friction plates (clutch plates), so if/when it does wear out, you have to replace the entire unit, as opposed to replaceing the clutch disks.

    The Auburn LS Diff uses a Cone clutch, and wears directly to the case of the diff. The Cones and the case wear, and neither are replaceable.

    This one is stronger than factory LSD. It locks up stronger from what I understand as well to perform better. It's cheaper than a locker. For a TRD locker, I think you need to pull a complete rear axle form a TRD Offroad packaged tacoma in order to get it. Plus since it's selectable, then you'd need the switch, wiring, etc. An LSD would benefit with traction both on and off the road as well, where as a locker would pretty much benefit offroad. This will fit the rear axle of a 2nd gen tacoma, so yes, it would fit your truck.

    The 2nd gens have an 8.0" and the 1st gens have an 8.4". If you want to confirm that, you can check the link I posted in the OP. It's linked to a PDF file directly from Auburn Gear that has the specs.

    Depends on your uses. It would be a cheaper route to go with the Auburn Gear LSD. SO really, depending on what you use your truck for, depends on which one would benefit you more. It'd be a lot more work to swap a rear axle compared to installing an aftermarket LSD too.

    In all honesty too, I'm not sure how a TRD rear axle would match up compared to the base model one. I just don't know that much about that kind of axle swap. Now if you were talking about a SAS, then I'd know all kinds of info for ya :D

    To clarify:
    This unit isnt any "stronger" then the OEM LS Diff. It will "lock up" stronger than the OEM LS Diff.

    Both the first and second genss use the same rear ring gear size, just the second gens are wider. Non TRD off road models use a "8.4" " housing.

    I'll vouch for the brand new part. Connor hasn't had it long enough to install it in anything! And he is selling it at a good discount, compared to some, http://www.shelbysautostorm.com/servlet/the-Auburn-Gear-Differentials/Categories.

    BTW, who ever does buy it might have a slight advantage is we do another photo swap;)

    Thanks Thom. The original plans for the diff changed slightly :eek: Will shoot you an email later today as a follow up to the last one. I've just been busy with work and whatnot.
