    ARB is the only option for the front. I recommend ARB for the rear as well, especially if your ride is your DD. Full time lockers are temperamental on the street. X2 for East Coast Gear Supply. Consider regearing for larger tires at the same time.

    $275 and free installation!

    I searched and searched for a cost effective locker when I had my Tacoma. The Trutrac was tempting but was not a true locker. The only other option was the ARB. I knew 3 people that installed auto lockers in their daily drivers and they all hated them and took them out. For the money they wasted to install, take out and deal with they were not far off from buying an ARB.

    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    I run ARB in my 3rd gen. I friking love them. Just a flip of a switch and your in. I do also DD my rig and it's on 37s.

    Also those guys above do good work. They set up the gears in 3rd Gen when it was built. No issues so far.

    Too many mods and too much money
    Keep an eye out for Group Buys as well. Picked up an ARB RD193 locker w air compressor and air line kit for my 5th gen awhile back. Pretty good discount too.
