OH i no what it does now its positrack that you can turn on and off thats way over rated i dont need that my crusier gets me anywhere i need to go better than any jeep so im good, so i dont need to do any thing like that
yes glad to know you know what it is they are very expensive anyways so i dont know if you want one unless you are going to do some major wheeling but yes land cruisers are tough but the springs still very close to the ground not much ground clearance get stuck in heavy mud very easy
Learning driving skills with open diffs is valuable. When you get to the point where you recognize what a locker can do for your ability to go places, then would be, IMHO, the time to put it or them in.
There are people (the 4x4 equivalent of a "RUB" - a "RUOF"?) who put them in first thing and then because the locker enables them to go places that otherwise would be inconceivable they never learn how to actually drive off road. Their equipment offsets their lack of skill and knowledge. Until it doesn't, and then they don't understand what went wrong.
The truck I bought came with working front and rear ARB Air Lockers and an Air Compressor, and to be honest, most of the time, you don't even need to use them, and you can get to most places you would want to get to without them. And even most obstructions can simply be avoided by not tackling them and taking a slight detour. However, the truck I bought cost less than the cost of the added goodies as listed in estimated price by Lost by about $300 or $400, and quite honestly, was a great learning experience for me as I slowly learned how to work on what I could, and sourcing out the big things that I couldn't tackle on my own. Overall, I would say you probably don't need them most of the time, and when you do, a simple reassessment of whether you NEED to get over an obstacle to where you would like to go is a better way to go than saying "lock it and drive it" and also safer in most cases. Just assess your needs first before jumping in.
