I am just curious what year Toyota started making the TRD axles available in their Tacomas?

As a package, thats correct, but you could still custom order the locker even before that. It was just very rare to see a truck with the locker that didn't have the TRD package.
Like mine...97' Std cab V-6 with an E-locker..:flipoff1:

Right..I believe it was a $400 factory option, haven't looked at the window sticker in a while though..

honestly, isn't it more fun to try to find answers for yourself?
(NOT GIVING YA SHIT, JUST CURIOUS)
What do you mean? This is loads of fun.

The reason I ask is this...

I bought a tacoma 3rd member off of eBay. Said it came off a 4cyl 4x4 from 1996 w/4.10's
I assumed it couldn't possibly have a locker or they would have mentioned that.
Well...it has a locker but no motor! So I am kind of stuck with it as selling this will be difficult.

I was going to try to prove to the seller that the item was incorrectly listed and I should get a refund. But it seems that it is possible (though rare) to see a locker in a 96.

Since you are wondering...I really don't want to bother paying $750 for the motor and then finding the right axle so that i can use it myself.

Yup, pre 98, the best bet is with the SX package (4 or 6...doesn't seem to matter) from what I've seen. I have the SX...but no e-locker :(
