    The locker I put in my 8.4” is advertised as being for an 8” since we technically have an 8” ring gear. That’s where all the cross referencing came into play to make sure it would fit my truck.

    I think it worked for you because the no slip in question covers up to 09 tacomas and you are 05. Was 09 when they switched from mechanical to electronic LSD therefore changed the carrier?

    No, we have the same diff. Electronic lsd is all in the brakes, nothing to do with the diff itself. 09 is the first year of electronic lsd, and @FadedComa installed one in his.

    There were only a select few trucks to get a mechanical LSD and they were only TRD Sports and for like 2 yrs only 06-07 I believe. Everything else is open diff., electronic traction control gizmo stuff to act like an LSD, or the TRD OR with the electric locker.

    Do you have an auto transmission, and can you give us a more detailed impression?

    I had a No-Slip in a 1st Gen MT and am thinking one for my '14 Sport AT. With the 1st Gen MT I occasionally had to push in the clutch on medium-tight turns in parking lots to keep the No-Slip from modulating between open and locked, causing the drivetrain to buck, but otherwise it was good to go and was great in bad weather and bad terrain.

    How is it in an auto transmission? If it snows, would you hand the keys to someone who has not driven with an auto-locker before?

    It will chirp if you get on the throttle abruptly. You learn to feather the throttle in inclement conditions. I would probably show someone throttle control before I just sent them out.


    Other than that it works great and I have no regrets.

    Thanks, @FadedComa. Any funny feelings in parking lots?

    I'm looking at installing the same locker (powertrax no slip 9220803002)

    This question has been asked but the answer is unclear to me.
    I have a 2010 2.7 4x4. On powertrax website, the no slip says it's applicable to tacomas up to year 2009. Does anyone know why this would not fit a 2010?
    I called Powertrax but just received an, "I don't know, they must have changed something."

    as far as I know, the rear end in your truck is the same as mine (except gear ratio) and all are identical from 05-15.

    Actually, @FadedComa has one in his truck and it’s a newer second gen. That should confirm fitment.

    Edit: jk, apparently his is 09. But my statement stands that your carrier should be identical to all 05-15 non e locker trucks.

    Thanks for the reply, I called back and got a different guy on the phone. I asked what the geometric differences were between the 1615-LR (lock right) and 9220803002 (no slip). The gentleman said he would look into it and find out.

    Turns out the 9220803002 validity up to 2009 is typo, both lockers should work through 2015. They're correcting the typo on their site. Hope this is helpful for anyone with same question.

    That’s good to hear, and what I expected. Report back with your thoughts on the locker once you get it installed, if you decide to go this route.
