    Has anybody ever looked at swapping the locking rear diff for a limited slip from a TRD Sport?I have an 05 w/ the TRD off road pkg. Of course it came with the locking rear diff standard. I don't off road much but I do find myself "traction limited" at times due to my heavy right foot and the light rear end.

    The two rear ends are different and the LSD from a Sport will not fit in the Off-Road rear end.

    EDIT: you could always swap out your entire rear end for a "8.4 rear." I'm sure there are plenty of people that would be willing to trade. The swap would be very straight forwoard.

    Sorry to be off topic but does anybody know if the rear ends are the same for the SR5 and Sport. I have an open rear and want a limited slip.

    They are the same, the only difference is one has an open carrier and the other has the LSD. All non off-road models, and non base 4 cyl models utitlize the same rear end which is the "8.4" rear.

    The SR5 is a trim/accesories package. A 4x4 truck will have the same axle as a 4x4 with SR5. Hope that helps.

    I'd take a locker in a heart beat... Here's your offer for free trade! Wiring will probably be a PITA but we'll figure it out.

    I been hearing a lot on the forums that the 3rd members dont just swap due to a bolt pattern difference from the lockered axles to the regular open like mine. Since i rarely offroad, i was considering a decent ltd slip that might help with traction in snow, but that can cut both ways when driving on ice.
    The thought of a full factory axle swap with the locker and switches would be nice though.:D

    My 09' has the new and un-improved electro LSD....Which isnt an LSD at all!!

    I'm actually kinda irked as my 06' had a real LSD. This new one and the silly pulsating brakes sucks.

    bringing up a ghost of an old thread here, but I would do this in a heart beat. I have an 05 OR, but I never take it off paved streets. I couldn't find a sport when I was looking for a truck, so I got the OR. My truck will be going in in the next week or so for frame replacement. If it was a straight forward swap, I'd totally do that.
