    Probably need to give us more info on how you use your truck in order to get good info.

    Also, does the linked auto locker even come in a size for Toyota axles???

    The "lunchbox" locker linked above will work and is less expensive, but has a few "interesting" characteristics on the street you should google up and be comfortable with before plunking down your hard earned denero

    Well, I'd prefer you'd read comments from folks who've driven with it, than comments I'd give you second hand.

    I have an ARB, so I can say it's smooth on road and works well as I expect in locking situations off road. But it's expensive.

    Auto lockers and lunchbox lockers are fairly streetable, but they have been known to lock up on the street, when you don't want them to - especially in snow and ice conditions. Lunchbox lockers are the most affordable, since in addition to being less expensive they don't need a carrier replacement and re-shimming of the gear pack, so it's an install you can do yourself, or at least a less expensive install.

    Limited slip differentials are often driven on the street, and are considered by some to have better snow/ice performance than open differentials. (opinions vary) but they don't lock up tight in offroad "lifted wheel" situations, though they will force some torque to the driven wheel, especially if you add a touch of parking brake.

    Hope this helps, but you do yourself a disservice if you don't spend a weekend doing additional research in addition to what we tell you here in this forum.

    Here's one, I found by googling the following phrase (including quotes as given)

    "lunchbox locker" driving characteristics

    http://www.offroaders.com/tech/Lunchbox-lockers.htm

    I don't mean to say they're awful and no one should ever use one. I mean to say it's different than a stock vehicle and you need to be aware of what it'll do.
