    How are you running the on board air setup? Is it just sitting in your tool box or something?

    To the OP

    If you don't have a E-locker now you need a whole axle unless you some how have the 8" rear end. The E-Locker will only fit on the 8" (4 runners have them). If you have a Prerunner you most likely have the 8.4" rear end and will have to swap out for a 8" rear with E-Locker for a selectable locker. As far as selectable lockers go you only have 2 options. E-locker 8" (400-1000+) axle swap or get a Air Locker which is only ARB locker (1000+). Both are equal in cost unless you get a good deal on a wrecked TRD Tacoma. Other options for lockers are Detroit (300-500) which is a DD friendly locker as well as TrueTrack (300-400) which also has a DD friendly version. They also have Truetracks (200 or less) non DD friendly for less. Theres many other companys out there for Full time lockers/ Auto lockers. And if your rig is non DD then you can just weld the thing. If you want a more selectable set up I would go with a ARB in your current axle, because Running a Full/Auto locker up front is not ideal and causes lots of binding. And a E-locker for the front of the Tacoma is non exsistat.

    Hope The info I have given you will help you make your choice.

    As for your question. Try TTORA for a E-Locker and Axle. Or your local junk yard but most of the time TTORA.com will have a better deal.

    I've used Both the Lock Rite and Powertrax No-Slip automatic lockers (different variations of the same locker). They are cheap and reliable.

    I'm fairly certain the reason they don't is because it would defeat your ADD system. It would make your front drive shaft spin all the time which would lower fuel economy and increase wear and tear.

    You may be right.

    It definitely would defeat your ADD though.

    I'd only do it if I also had locking hubs.
