    the locker makes both of the back tires spin the same amount the are locked together you are not supose to drive with it on or on hard roads because when you take a corner the inside tire wont slow down so it drages around the corner and when you have the locker on it puts alot of stress on everything to engage the locker you have to be in 4low

    Well, yes, except he is looking at the PreRunner.

    Like 2003greenbean said, the wheels will turn at the same rate with the locker engaged. Because of this, it will eat tires quickly and cause excessive wear and tear on your entire rearend.

    A locker is great to get out of a tough spot, but it is not as good as 4 wheel drive. I am going to install an aftermarket Limited Slip Rear on my 2007 PreRunner. For more information about that, check this out... Limited Slip Rear

    It talks about limited slip rear (like posi-traction) and a few jabs at lockers.
