    Hello all! Just picked up a Tundra and thought I'd join to learn from those who know. Not new to forums or Toyotas. Been active on T4R for years and 4Runners.com for a few also. Have an '88 4rnr, '03 Tacoma Pre-rnr, and an '01 Tacoma 5-lug. I suppose a picture is in order... IMG_0990.jpg

    Definitely not cheap and really not worth it unless you choose to do a full time front diff lock. Then the wheels can roll free when you are not crawling.
    I looked into it for my 07 Tacoma. Briefly looked into it. Think there was a DIY on tacomaworld for it.

    Exactly. I wouldn't want hubs on anything modern.

    Hell, my D60 in the Heep doesn't even have hubs (I have flanges) with a mechanical locker ( full hydraulic steering aids in that).

    Hahaha alright. I had to ask because you mentioned you had a first Gen 4rnr fd6477b0a42aa07346b3c54eb1dee14c_9af03f4b2c3e695c8ee8b2908ddbddce7919867c.jpg I'm sure you see my confusion. But it appears yours is white. How's the body on it?

    Checked out the Off Road Solutions 'solution'... It ain't cheap that's for sure! You could save a chunk of change by sourcing the locking hubs from elsewhere. They charge 3x the price Rockauto does for genuine Aisin hubs! The basic kit comes with new axle shafts, outer CV joints, seals, bearings and such. No boot but u can reuse the original. I'm wondering why I couldn't also reuse my axles n CVs..? I have access to a press so that isn't an issue.
