    It's for my regular cab TRD 4x4 2.7L. I think my truck has 4.30 gears. Problem is it's geared 3.73. I think because it came out of an automatic. The seller only says it's out of a 2004 tacoma sr5. So my question is can I just re-gear the e-locker? And will I have to modify my axle housing?

    That's what I was afraid of. Is it a big deal? I am a machinist though :D

    Better if you can find the front diff to go with it, 4:10's and 4:30's on a street rig are just gas eaters.
