    ARB is awesome!!! They should involve professional installation with gear setup. Plus, air supply to engage it. Do some research. They're awesome lockers!! Just a but expensive after its all said & done.

    Before you buy a locker, you may want to think about switching your prerunner out for a 4x4 (aka sell it). A locker is quite useful for serious offroading and trail riding, but IMO a prerunner is kind of pointless in those situations. A 4wd is much better, especially a locked one.

    So if you're still thinking locker than take a good look at ARB because they are the best lockers on the market (and also expensive), but you may want a 4x4 taco first.

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    to throw a stock e-locker on your truck, you will need to swap out the rear end as well... you cant just add the actuator and switch to your existing rear diff...

    since you're doin desert wheelin, you def want to look into the locker and it's worth the money...

    you can find TRD rear ends for sale from time to time if you know where to look for as little as $300 for the 3rd member to about $500 to $600 for the whole axle drum to drum...

    hang out in the local desert scene enough, and you can make friends with a lot of folks who are parting out and upgrading enough to throw a deal your way...
