    SOLD

    I bought this from another TW member some time ago and have never gotten around to installing it, so I've decided to let it go. It's in like new condition with no noticeable wear. The previous owner ran it for ~2k miles!! I'm asking $350 shipped to continental US firm. The install instructions are included.

    Part No: 92-2080-3002
    Spline: 30
    Application: Open Rear Differentials Only!!
    Fits Models: T100, Tundra, and Tacoma

    The application guide, installation guide, and other information can be found on the Richmond website. The installation can be completed with common mechanics tools and there are a few write-ups for 1st gen's here and here. Please verify that this fits your truck before buying.

    The POWERTRAX® TRACTION SYSTEMS are the latest design in traction adding differential technology. It combines the smooth operation of a limited-slip differential, with the traction performance of a locking differential.

    A precise synchronization mechanism eliminates the ratcheting sounds typical of other locking differentials. Special gear and spring design reduce the backlash and therefore driveline windup. Only ultra strength material is used which is 67% stronger than titanium.

    Installation is simple because no ring and pinion set-up is required. In addition, no special tools or oils are needed. Step by step model specific instructions are provided with every kit.

    The POWERTRAX® TRACTION SYSTEMS are the ideal solution for just about any light truck, sport utility, and muscle car on the road today. Whether you need the safety of added traction for daily commuting, recreation, work, or just so your muscle car puts power to the pavement instead of burning one wheel up, the POWERTRAX® TRACTION SYSTEMS are your answer.

    The person I bought it from was running it in an 06 4x4. The open 8 inch rear end is the same (aside from ratios) for the 1st and 2nd gens. This won't work if you have the elocker or LSD. If you have doubts if it will fit your truck then I would give Richmond Gear a call and they should be able to tell you if this part no. will fit your truck.

    The 8" diff was used in both 1st and 2nd gen Tacomas
    This is the one I would recommend for use with a manual tranny. Much smoother operation. Of course it would work great with an automatic too.

    so im reading more into this locker and got a question: it says when you get on the gas it locks let off the gas unlocks. what constitutes as letting off the throttle, is it when you take your foot completely off and coast in neutral or is it when you just let off the throttle and coast in gear?

    also read that its not recommended for large tires :confused: what do they consider large?

    Drew may be able to provide a better answer from experience than me. I asked a similar question in email to the folks at Richmond some time ago but didn't get a reply. So I've done some reading to try and answer your question.

    Letting off the gas in an automatic is different than letting of the gas with a manual. With an automatic, the tranny unlocks from the engine when you let off the gas. With a manual the engine and tranny stay locked together unless the clutch pedal is pressed or you are in neutral. Richmond says it locks when torque is being applied to the rear wheels.

    My understanding is that with a manual, torque is applied as long as you are in gear until the engine's RPM's drop (while coasting) to the point where you can easily move the shifter to neutral without using the clutch. At this point there is no torque difference between the engine and transmission, hence why it is so easy to move the shifter to neutral. If I had to guess, I would think that it would be at this point that the no slip would unlock too.

    Someone please correct me if this is wrong.

    Think of it this way, when you floor it you're putting positive force on the driveline. When you let all the way off the gas you're putting negative force on the driveline (unless going down a super steep hill). Somewhere in between positive and negative (exactly where depends on conditions) is slack throttle, which is where the locker unlocks.

    "Large" is bigger than 35"
