    Not sure. haha, some of the differences between the two surprise me sometimes. Like how the auto's use the wheel speed sensors to determine speed, but the manual's use the transfer case. So regearing an auto doesn't affect the speedo, but it does in a manual.

    Ah. He doesn't have a factory locker anyway so it wouldn't fit. You have to get a TRD Offroad diff for a TRD offroad.

    How many Miles/Kilometers on your Tacoma? It may be covered under the 60,000 mile drive train warranty. The dealer is replacing mine (46,000 miles) right now at no cost.

    Right, but the problem there is you get another Toyota gearset.

    Lets say my stealership is the laughing stock of Canada for warrenty work.... Bastards..lol

    Mostly gears... IMO

    But certainly it's "too small" when you start throwing large tires and wheel spin at it, considering the weight and output of these trucks. Not that it's going to break but it's maybe a bit undersized for the job, considering it's basically the same rear end you have in V6 3.slow trucks with minimal weight and power.

    The non-elocker rear end is marginally better due to the trussing but you still have an 8" ring gear.

    I also wonder what kind of carrier bearing pre load these things are coming with from the factory... that could have a decent amount to do with why stock gear sets break.
