    Here is what i did..... I installed a Powertrax easy locker in my rear diff. I love it!!!! Its way cheaper. I paid about 430 Us dollars. All you do is take out your driveline, pull out diff housing, take diff out, pull off cover, and install it. You must have to know a little about difffs to install it but shouldnt be hard to find someone who will do it. You could take it out then take it to a machine shop who will do it professionally.

    yes it matters. I got the wrong part two times in a row because my ring gear is exactly 8 inches. Four wheel parts said otherwise. Call manufactuer and they will tell you exactly what you need.

    My friend and I measured it. You could call the toyo manu with Vinn number if you dont want to measure it. The manual is useless
