Hey guys,

There was a thread here IIRC where a guy had converted his front high pinion e-locker (FZJ80 locker or Tacoma?) to cable activation. It had some nice pics in the post. I can't find the thread anymore. Can anyone help me find it?

I have the rear Downey cable locker. Downey doesn't know sometime if it is for the front or rear. It is for the rear. I don't know if it will work with the front but don't think so. I will look under the 80.

Not in a Cruiser, but for a Mini TRD rear end... http://members.cox.net/vavp/trdconversion. That's the only one I've seen besides Kurt's, but tons of teh mini guys on Pirate have done it. FWIW, I've talked to Downey and they said they had it for the front high-pinion and the rear 80 series diffs.

Thanks guys, I'm looking for the one where the guy puts in a lever where the motor was and the cable pulls on that lever.

BTW I read on the POR Toy 4x4 board the Downey 8" diff locker kit hits the leaf spring if installed on a Toy truck? It may not be a problem for 80 series guys since the wider axle and the coil springs, but I'm thinking of using it on a high pinion 70 series axle.
