i had an arb in my taco in the front and it was nice... just make sure if you get one to carry a spare CV or 2 as you will bust the hell out of them with it.

It's always smart to carry a spare axle but you won't necessarily blow axles just because you have a front locker. Use it when you need it and don't do anything stupid while it's engaged and you will be fine.

if you use your truck wisely you wont be in a place that needs 4x4 much less a locker :p once i got the front locked on mine i was able to do much harder trails which leads to more problems with busting stuff and that now explains the solid axle in the front... its a never ending cycle.

True and I have fallen into that vicious cycle of hitting harder trails like you did. When I did tougher trails like Pritchett and BTR (at least to me ;)) I carried 2 spare axles just in case. The difference between us is that I won't do a SAC on my 4Runner...I like where it is now and it would be too much of a pain in the ass on an '01.

yeah, i said i would never do an sas either bu my fj40 is rusted out and just not worth fixing, i couldnt bas my lx450 since its bone stock and in perfect shape, my old fj62 with a hole in the block was rusting away also and my perfectly good tacoma couldnt do real trails with ifs.... so i traded the lexus for a friends midly built runner plus cash, sold the fj40 for parts and then took all that money plus the axle from my 62 to build the taco. if i didnt just happen to have all that stuff i would have never done it but so far its been fun but over 6 months into it i still havent taken the truck out since i keep doing more to it will it sits.
