    Why E-Locker? Go buy yourself a ARB Air locker.

    I have done tons of research on this exact thing. By the time you get all the parts to do the E-locker correctly, you could have installed an ARB air locker. The ARB will also be stronger in your 8.4 housing.

    I was just looking into this for my daily driver. I, too, don't have a cool $1000 for an ARB, and I really wish Aussie Locker made one for my 1998 rear end, but they don't. (a quick call today and the guy said they plan on having one in the next 4-6 months. Apparently Tacoma rear ends are North America specific).

    What are your impressions of the powertrax? I would want it for staying on the road most of the time, but not getting stuck in the snow or (occasionally) mud. Is it weird? Does it make any noise?

    I had a noslip in my jeep for years and it was a great locker. Didn't cause fast tire wear either. It is a great, affordable option.
