    I have not purchased my new Tacoma yet but in planning for the future I want to go with 33's on the tires. Which means a gear change to most likely 4:56's is the stock e-locker in the trd good with that?

    I dont want to buy the trd for the locker then find out when I change to 4:56's I need to dump it and go with an ARB.

    Thanks

    I haven't had any issues with mine. I use it almost weekly and have 35's.

    So you have changed your gears to 4:56's? Not sure if my question was entirely clear. But in case it wasn't I am asking if the e-locker will allow for a ring and pinion change to lower gears.

    Thanks

    Yeah, Anton(all.on.black) really uses his rig offroad and the locker is fine. He does have 4.56's

    Thanks Eric.

    Yes, I have 4.56s and the factory E Locker. I have a sport model but I swapped an E Locker out of an 06 Off Road model. I have had the 4.56s for about a year and a half or so. I haven't had any issues so far. The only problems I've seen with the factory E Lockers are with the ring gear being stripped. The plus side of the 4.56 gears are that they are thicker and stronger.

    Ok good info, I just wanted to make sure I wasnt going to have issues with installing lower gears with the factory locker. Thanks!
