Thread: Center diff lock question on V8 4Runner

    Re: Center diff lock question on V8 4Runner

    A related (dumb?) question; if I regear, I'd need to switch out both front and rear diffs?

    yes, the gear ratios need to match
    2005 Lexus LX470 - Stock for now...

    1998 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6 4x4 + a bunch of goodies. Lifted, Locked, Illuminated and Armored. Winner,"Best Offroad Truck" - 2010 Pismo Jamboree. It's been upside down and still drives me to work.

    I'm not sure how the toyota center diff works (how much of a power disparity it can handle front to rear), but you may be able to get away with doing one at a time, just never lock the center until they are the same.

    if you had to...you could do the front one week and just take out the front driveshaft until you do the rear.

    In that case, you would have to run the center diff lock, or you wouldn't go anywhere. Theoretically Troy, that method doesn't require you to do either first, as You can drive these trucks in FWD mode (although I've heard there are some interesting handling quirks when you do)

    Rear wheel drive is the way to do it.

    Toyota 4wd test.

    Heres a video showing the Toyota A-Trac 4wd system in action. Prado 120 and a 4Runner are the same except the prado is dressed up more. Same driveline design is shared in the all Toys,Lexus & Land Cruisers.

    Ford Maverick is the Ford Escape in the USA. The last Lexus has a mechanical issue imo?
