Looking to get an 05 Taco TRD Off-Road. Should I be concerned about the E-Locker? It has about 8,000 miles on odometer and 17 months of warranty left.
From what I read on the this site, if it fails, it usually happens within the warranty period.

Thanks! :)

I've got 22K on my 05 and have not had a problem yet. I used my E-locker pretty hard this winter and it worked flawlessly.

Over 18K and no locker probs so far. I also did the relay locker mod...works great in any t-case gear.

Yeah, you should be fine. I drive my truck freakin hard, and at 26k miles the only things that have broken were my fault:

- Front mudflaps from playing in too much deep snow/ice.
- Tailgate from a boat trailer poppping off the hitch on shitty back roads.
- Radio buttons stuck from offroading with an open gatorade in my hand.

If I ever sell this truck I'd feel bad for the next owner if not for the fact that I'm pretty sure it's bullet proof.

Yeah, I got 30,000 on my '05 TRD Off Road 6 spd. and used the locker a lot in Baja this winter - no problems. The only thing was a squeeky clutch pedal that the dealer replaced and I also jammed up my radio knobs by spilling an open can of Tecate on it going down a steep, rocky trail in Baja. haha

I had a problem at about 26K with the rear end. Got it replaced under warranty. No probs after that though. The tacoma can survive the Loch Ness and a meterorite. We are good to go.

Thank you guys. Looked at it last night. Looked very sharp. Man, talking about a Yota fan! That guy had a brand-new Tundra AND "my" Tacoma. Signing papers this weekend, if all goes well.

Let us know how it goes for you! I've had an '07 since late September, no problems so far! I really really love this truck. Its true, once you own a Toyota, you rarely want anything but another one.

Did not get it. Got sold from under my nose. We were suppose to sign papers this morning, and someone else paid him cash last night.

I am not happy!
