    Hey guys,
    Got some locker questions from the guys with experience. I read a bunch of the older threads (no, not all of them) but still have a few questions.

    Long story short, I went wheeling this weekend and finally had some problems getting some places due to having a TRD Sport. The guy I was with had his locker and A-trac TRD OR and it crawled right up the obsticles with barely . I had to take different lines, use a bit of throttle, and dumb luck but still did the two-wheeled boogie until I got enough traction to pull me up.

    I most likely will go with an ARB locker in the rear (although I dont really want to spend the $1500 total install price). One problem I have is the normal mounting spot for the compressor behind the battery on the drivers side is being used by my TRD heat supercharger heat exchanger coolant resorvior. Is there another mounting point that people are using?

    Second question... Front locker/LSD... Again, after looking at another $1500 for a front ARB, are there limited slip diff options that work better than the normal open diff but are 75% of a fully locked diff? Opinions, options, etc?


    Thanks for all your guys help. :bowdown:

    Anyone?

    Let me say I have looked at most of the LSD/locker options, I am looking for people opinions/reccomendations!

    same shit as everyone else
    Get lockers bro. Only thing you can do. Trust me. I had to lock my rear up three times Saturday in the sand. I wish I had the new bells and whistles too that they get on them 2011's...

    I just read about the "yellow wire mod" that basically gives me poor mans A-Trac in 4-L. Its not as aggressive but might jsut be what I am looking for. Definatly combined with an ARB rear locker it should take care of the front for the most part.

    Thank you for the heads up whipper, I think thats the route I will go. ARB in back with yellow wire mod.

    Now, does anyone have a alternate location for the ARB compressor. Like I said before, the normal location is being used up by my TRD supercharger!!!
