2wd Tacoma come w/ E locker?
« on: Sep 21, 2012, 09:01:05 PM »
 My mother in law has a 2001 Tacoma 4door, it's 2wd V6 and I noticed the other day while driving it has a switch to lock the rear diff.. which I thought was odd.. I haven't looked under to see if there's an E-locker there yet but was wondering if that's possible?

Is there such a thing?

TIA!

The prerunner package is the exact same as the trd package in the 4wd platform, minus the front diff. Everything is identical

If it has the TRD package, it has a e-locker. Regardless if it's a 2wd or 4wd.

Prerunner isn't a package, it's a trim. TRD is a package.

Ya...you need a non trd axle to bolt into her truck or regraph the trd axle back to a normal 8" style 3rd.
and dont please just take her axle and put yours in place. im sure you know this but an IFS axle and a tacoma axle is a little different WMS

Is this an 8.4 as appose to an 8" third?    ...so you can't swap thirds out?

How much wider is the axle?

Yes. Not only that but there is a slot on an e-locker axle for the fork(which engages the locker).and i believe there 60"

you need to source a non-trd tacoma axle and just swap entire axles.

Not as free as you think. You'll have to get a stock non e-locker axle, doubt that will be cheap.
I would suggest you call around to some wrecking yards and see what they want for a whole axle.

buddy has one if you want its the non trd axle which means it the 8.4 and it came out of a taco also a good thing for your steal . this will be a easy swap and still since their both are for taco's it should go rite in....only thing is it will cost you for the axle....
