This is usually the best time to explore other options so it's good to look around and compare.

Not so difficult to set up, same as a Ford 9", you can do it on the bench, not really my issue, I have picked up a standard rear end assy., and am considering putting a Detroit locker in it, but then I have to buy 4:88's again for that rear, still ends up being a big expense, the work is not a problem for me, I've twisted wrenches all my life, basically I was just wondering if anyone knew if there was an aftermarket e-locker to replace the stock TRD one. I have looked at the mechanical units, and I'm not really sold on those, they are $500.00 and I expect there would be corrosion issues with them over time as well, lots of salt on the roads where I live.
