I have a 99 2.7 reg. cab and I was wondering how much money I'm going to have to dump into a locking diff. or detroit lockers or I have heard about arb lockers as well. New to this kind of stuff wondering what kind of a chore it is to get both wheels to spin because it has ruinned the day before and I don't want it to keep happening

on the cheap side you can use an aussie or a "lunchtime" type locker, on the expensive side you can go arb. but then you gotta buy a compresser, or a co2 set up to run it. Then you could buy a spool locked all the time traction all the time but its not your best bet for the street but can be done.It all dependes on the size of your wallet.

cheap http://www.performanceoffroadcenter.com/oscommerce/product_info.php?cPath=37_38&products_id=134

better/stronger http://www.performanceoffroadcenter.com/oscommerce/product_info.php?cPath=37_76&products_id=1050 or http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?autofilter=1&part=PWT-92-2080-3002&N=700+400018+4294907680+4294902613+4294907573+115&autoview=sku

best http://www.performanceoffroadcenter.com/oscommerce/product_info.php?cPath=37_52_162&products_id=200 but also figure another $200.00 or so for a compressor and wiring , another option is to swap a entire TRD (locker equiped) axle in but this will prob cost over a $1000.00 and you will need to find one with the same gearing as your current axle

With the lunchbox styles: lockright, EZ locker, No-Slip, (I'm not sure about the Detroit) they are a simple do it yourself install as they use your existing carrier. These are full time automatic lockers meaning that anytime torque is applied your wheels will be locked together, on the downside your truck will handle differently and you will hear some ratcheting and etc when turning

With the ARB I believe you will need to have gears set up (best done by a professional shop) as I believe it replaces the carrier but on the positive side you can turn it off when not needed and your truck's handling won't be affected

Oh and get over to the OH forum and introduce yourself http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=178

How ya doin' old man? Indeed, solid axle fronts are easier than IFS, and removable 3rd rears such as yoyo's or 9's are easier than Dana's.

ARB's can be a REAL PITA! There is currently a 7.5 front in my garage just now for another beloved member, and it is being almost as difficult as the 4.30 ARB 8.4 we put in his rear. The worst one I ever had to deal with was a D44 front ARB with 4.88's to go in a T100. Can you sense my love for ARB installs? ;)
