    I heard that u need to swap a whole axle with the factory locker, then just wire it.

    Also heard its easier/cheaper to just do an ARB locker install in your current axle, and its stronger. I've only done research though, no experience doing it yet.

    Yes, it requires an axle swap. No, the wire isn't there. You would need the axle (gears must be same ratio as the front diff), the harness back to the ECU and a switch. There are other was of wiring it also (without the harness). IMO, the harness just makes it easier.

    I too looked into this once, and the gear ratio is different (trd = 3.73 vs sr5 =4.1 ). If you plan on bigger wheels, this will kill your already limited power. But if you do go with it I'll like to know how it works out. Good luck...:cool:

    you can't due to the different gear ratios. Unless you want to change your front ratios also.
