well today when I got home I had a box from MARLIN CRAWLER waiting for me. inside was a brand new SPARTAN lunchbox style locker . cant wait to get it put in and use it .
so your going to get out and wheel more often right? youll like it just gotta learn to drive again.well today when I got home I had a box from MARLIN CRAWLER waiting for me. inside was a brand new SPARTAN lunchbox style locker . cant wait to get it put in and use it .
It will be like its not even there in 2wd. Your dif has a actuator that connects both axles when on and sepperates them when off. Some people have wired it up to work like a poor mans selectable locker turning it into 3wd to turn sharper. I think Avy has one he never put in. He may sell it.I would like to know if anyone on here has run a lunchbox style locker up front on an IFS tacoma...with ADD.
I'm thinking of getting one but would like to know how they handle when in 2WD. I know the diff is not spinning in 2WD but the axles do. And since the axles still spin when in 2WD, and the lunchbox lockers are connected through the axles...does it cause weird handling?
I think you would be wrong. Bearing yes, but wheel bearing no. And it's not brake pads either. It's inside the diff.I think it's more likely you have a wheel bearing going out or need to replace brake pads.
I dont know if I'll wheel more often , but prolly better. the only reason I havent been out this last year is that I have an injury , and I cant sit in the vehicle with out extreme pain in my knee. but that will hopefully get fixed by the end of march.so your going to get out and wheel more often right? youll like it just gotta learn to drive again.
I went thru 3 lockrights in 1.5 years, I set up 1 and a shop set up 2. All 3 were noisy. I went to a Detroit after #3 and it was great, very little noise and very smooth. Never broke either. Just my :2cents:FWIW I had a lockrite in my rig before I got rid of it. Worked great on with my 38" creepies. I've personally heard a lot of NOISY lockrites in other applications than the Toyota platform (7.5" IFS/8" SA) diffs, but mine operated smoothly and had no noise. This was even with a carrier with spun carrier bearings.
Eric runs one in his front 60 (maybe rear 14B, can't remember which) and his works great too with no noise or problems. I've seen quite a few people that had Detroits that have problems where only one side engages at a time. Kajo's does this a lot!
