    How do dealer-installed LSDs fit in? Would a dealer use a complete LSD with gears, or would they order a bare LSD and swap the gears?

    I'm currently running the Marlin kit right now and have been super happy with it even with hard wheeling and heavy clutch work. I guess the concern here is how much heavier it might feel when crawling.

    the LCE is stock feeling, I wish it was heavier. I used to have and ACT2600 in my old eclipse which was a leg workout, loved it!

    That doesn't look good for other drivers. Take a night shot behind another vehicle. If you can see their rearview mirror then that's no bueno.

    Those head lights are illegal AF. Would not run those on the road.

    Look for something like this:

    Various makes that make lights like that, those are DOT approved and work much better.

    There's a caveat to that. Not all lockers are "TRD elockers"
    First of all, the locker was available before there was even such a thing as TRD. Second, the locker was available to be ordered without the TRD package, even after there was TRD.

    So the distinction is more clear to say almost all lockers had 4.10, but not all of them.

    Yes, an elock 4Runner axle would be 8.0

    As a matter of fact ALL 3rd Gen 4Runner rear axles are 8.0. Regardless of whether they were locked or not. There is no 8.4 3rd Gen 4Runner axle.


    And also... it is a pretty simple modification to get a non-elock T4R to accept a locker. It requires a little bit of clearancing of a couple areas with a grinder, and drilling and tapping 2 holes. There are a few vendors that sell a template for this. Low Range Off Road is one. (just a tid bit of random info)

    @Dan8906 Mine were Baja XRS, but Zane's right - they were not comfortable at all - like sitting on hard plastic. Might work for some, but not for me. Looked great though. Took some doing to get them installed well, too.

    Replacing My Seats with Corbeau Baja XRS…Or Not

    [​IMG]


    I've just recently moved on to something more comfortable but significantly more costly, also on Zane's recommendation. No write-up yet, but one's coming.

    I've got the Moabs. They're OK. I think I would've stepped up to the trailcats if I were to do it again.

    I wish there was a shop you could sit in all the seats and see what works best for you before you buy them.
