    4.10 gears I believe in a pre runner, if you have a locker button, its open until locked, no locker button...... well I dunno , I'm in a reg cab.:)

    so when you add a locker you still use whatever gear you have in the diff?
    just add it with the locker?

    4.10 stock. ya its just comes off the stock assembly and gets bolted up to the new assebmly...well with the powertrax i think its more simple since its a lunchbox but with a detroit or ARB locker its what i mentioned.

    if your gonna lock and go with 33's or bigger i would highly recommend looking to do the locker and gears at one time. spending the coin to do it 2x makes absolutely no sense


    there is no, absoletly no, 4 cylinder that will have a locker from the factory so the button thing and crap is out the window!

    to install a locker you need: locker, install kit

    oh ok. what would be good..4.56? its not like im gonna be doing this anytime soon but its ok for me to dream for now lol

    i knew there was no locker. my restarted friend who has the exact same truck as me but in pyrite mica insists that our trucks come with a locker.:facepalm: i just refrain from telling him hes wrong because hes the type that thinks he knows it all and doesnt like to be wrong.

    haha we all got that kind of friend. if you go over 255/85/16 or 285/75/16 id go with 4.56 but some people "say" to go with 4.30. i havent met anyone running the 4.30 but ya you could go that way but the 4.56 puts you right at stock gearing.

    drew02a is a prime example for running 4.56 with 33's. he has a 4x4 reg cab 4 cylinder and runs it and is damn happy with it! pm him if you really interested, i have and he has helped me out a lot!


    i know what you mean about not doing it now. i got an arb sitting in my apartment but wont be installing till i need new tires because i want to do 4.56 gears and dont want to run small tires with that high of gearing. another thing to take into consideration if you really want to regear....are you going to be keeping the tires 33" or greater? if you arent then regearing makes no sense just deal with the sluggishness.
