If you are eventually wanting a front locker, an ARB makes more sense, as you'll need the compressor and air components anyway.

If you can't find a used elocker diff, might try emailing ECGS and see if you can swap yours plus some money for their rebuilt elocker diffs. You could get it rebuilt with a solid pinion spacer at this time too. Not sure if they stock elocker motors or if you'll need to find one separately, those can be expensive.

I'm looking into this since 8.2 axles aren't really that easy to find. Looks like assembled 8" rear elocker + front 8" reverse IFS clamshell with 4.56 gearing (and solid spacers front and rear) will run about $1400...then I'd have to source the elocker motor and a harness (no idea whether I'd need a high pinion or low pinion plug)...

Would all this simply bolt up and go?

You will need the low pinion plug I believe. One thing to keep in mind is I think you will need to send them an elocker 3rd as your core in order to get it for that low of a price. I would probably give them a call and see If they will accept an open third member as a core. I'm sure you can find a motor on ebay

I have been there in person, id steer clear unless you are in DESPERATE need of parts. They like to overprice their items.

Another vote for ARB.

I've had one in the front of a 92 Bronco since 2001. Works every time.

My son had one in the front of a 79 Bronco. Dana 44, RCV axles and CV joints. He beat on that truck and the only thing he never had to work on was the ARB. He broke a rear axle at one point, pulled the driveshaft and drove 50 or so miles in the desert back to his house on the front axle with the arb locked.

ECGS sells a 8.2 elocker conversion kit for $3500.

8.2'' FJ Cruiser/ 4runner / GX470 Elocker Complete Swap

And like mentioned, the one you linked, you'll need to call them on because you will be sending in your non-elocker 3rd member.

I saw that....at that price I'd way rather wait on a wrecked 8.2...or even skip it! I could do a rear Harrop/regear and regear the front for $800 less than that price! Or even go triple locked ARB for +$200 less!

I wonder how much money on top...

Their assmbled 8" elocker housings shoulda just bolt up no?

An 8" housing will bolt up, the 8" 3rd member w/ elocker will require you to notch your housing and I think add a stud or something like that.

All depends on what tire size you run and how hard you wheel.

Ah, I had assumed the assembled 8" elocker ones would just bolt right up - not a whole lotta info on people bolting those up I guess. I'll have to dig some more.

"34s" right now, possibly "35s" later. Moderate wheeling - would likely go harder if I had a rear locker doe hahaha.

Does it matter if elocker comes from 4x2 or 4x4 Tacoma?

The elocker motor itself? Probably not.

The 3rd member might have a different style driveshaft flange for the 2WD. This is true for 4Runners at least.

The 4Runners have a different driveshaft flange between 2wd/4wd but the 4wd driveshaft still bolts up. The thicker 2wd harmonic flange is thick enough the 4wd bolts thread into the flange itself instead of using nuts on the backside.

I never realized that there was a Toyota rear E-Locker that would work with my V8 4Runner, this is perfect! I would love to fit one into my rig over the air locker.

I know re 4runners, that's I'm asking if RWD and AWD Tacomas have different 3rds as well.

It's not easy to find (thus the thread) and requires some grinding to get it in. But it is a good option.

Supposedly at SEMA last year Eaton announced their own e-locker release for the Toyota, which might be more cost effective than Harrop.

Good to know, I always see there ads on craigslist so figured they have a pretty big inventory. Yotamasters has a used elocker motor for 250 if anyone is on the hunt. I've bought through them numerous times and they are super helpful.
