    I think it is a 7.5 but I don't know for sure. I have also been considering a lockrite for my 95 2.7. Good luck.

    For some reason the toyota calls the 8 inch ring gear an 8.4 or something like that. Those are for the v6 non trd as far as i know, and i believe that the 2.7 runs a 7.5. Ask Matic, he was the no-slip and im pretty sure he has a 2.7. He basically convinced me to get it, the no slip is awesome, also check out aussie, theyre cheaper and seem to be about as good as a no slip, but im not sure if they have come out with a model for the tacoma yet.
