    Hi all. I have a '02 regular cab and I want to put a locker into the rear of my truck. What kind should I go with? What size is my differential and what is the gear ratio???
    Thanks kindly. Curently I have a 2" lift with 265 75X16 tires and the 2.7L motor.

    ARB Air Lockers are the way to roll with on board air if you can afford it

    ARB. Gear ratio does not need to change, it is most likely 4.10. your diff is probably 8" R&P. (this info is only relative if it is a 95 4x4 like in your profile)

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    What are your spending costs, and why do you want to lock your rear end?

    Is it a TRD, Probably not since its a 2.7... then it's a 8.2" technically they call it 8" but yeah...

    Lock rite is the locker to go with IMO.

    Arb costs are WELL over $1000. Locker is $850 + $150-400 compressor (depends on which you choose) + install = at least $200-500...

    if you drive your truck on the street a lot and you dont wanna spend the money for an arb, go with the detroit truetrac, its a limited slip but its all gear type so there is no clutches to wear out or slip so you all ways have lock up and u cant feel it at all on the street, i love mine and it was around 550 or so i think its been a while but i put it in myself

    They don't make one for the taco's rear end... in 95 the 4 runner uses a different differential.. That's why.
