I’m going down the road of installing a rear Harrop in my 460. I ordered from Georg@CruiserBrothers last weekend. It should get here next week.
Rear locker for Toyota 4Runner, FJ Cruiser, Lexus GX 460
I do have some good leads already from GXOR-WA but the challenge is finding an installer as most either won’t install a Harrop on a 120/150 series or only do ARB. This is in Western Washington.
I am going to use a 100 series rear diff switch and I do not plan to regear at this time.
This is 80 series switch but going to pick up the wire splices and male connector for my 100 series switch.
Male Connector: Toyota 90980-10631 $4
Wire Splices (x3): Toyota 82998-12170 (165mm long)
Anyone else here in forum running a Harrop on a 460 or a 5th Gen 4R for that matter?
Other than changing my diff fluid and knowing the basic functions of a rear diff..not my expertise to install this myself.
I plan to do all the basic wiring and switch as that looks fairly simple and feel comfortable with that.
••A question I have and hope someone can answer is what other hardware will the installer need assuming they have the basic tools for this job?
Would it be wise to pick up a kit like this?
This is a full set up kit to do the job right. It includes: Carrier bearings Pinion Bearings Pinion Nut Pinion Seal Crush Sleeve or Preload Shims Pinion Shims Loctite Marking Compound Adju
Looks like the differential gasket or is this an area where they would seal back up with RTV? Saw some debate on a 200 thread about cork, gasket, versus RTV.
I see this FIPG mentioned here - 00295-01281
Or is less needed if you don’t plan to regear?
A good time to replace the wheel bearings as well or a requirement with this kind of work?
Wheel bearings seem to be in perfect shape but usually replaced when the axles are removed?
What part of this install am I missing on the hardware installation side?
Admittedly not knowledgeable much at all in this area and appreciate any feedback good or bad.
