    I have found some great information on TRD Axle swap with the search.

    Now, tell me which years will bolt into my 2001 Double Cab? Can I use anything from 96-04? What about ABS?

    Assuming I can find a good one, I think I will do this swap instead of the ARB.

    Thanks,

    So, does anyone know what years will fit without much modification on my 2001?

    Thanks,

    Well i thought that the third member swaps but i guess i'll have to find a whole axle, I want a locker and don't wanna pay $800 bucks for an ARB, Do u know if the non-trd and trd have the same gear ratio?

    I am not sure but it is more based on what motor is in the truck. Have you looked into Powertrax?

    Also, there is more to it than just swapping axles for the e-locker. You will have to have a the harness and the plug to hook it into the 4x4 ECU.
