    No stock ff/rr locking diffs on a 92.

    Only the center locking diff, which was standard on all 80's, switch for 91-92, no switch (automatic) for 93+ (but you can add the switch for more control). Locking fr/rr diffs are 93+, look for the rotary switch to the left of the steering column, on the dash.


    EDIT: Just looked at the ad, another way to tell it doesn't have them is, anytime you see the 4runner 15" wheels it will not have fr/rr diff locks.

    What do you mean by so so tranny in the 4 runner? Lack of power? It is like a cousin of the LC tranny very stout for a vehicle of that size. Toyota autos are pretty good dependability wise.

    I was reading Consumer reports - and they said that the 4Runner had a weak tranny - I am just coming into this whole 80 thing - the 60 has a NV4500 and the stock 4speed is great in my 40 - well the clutch sounds like a bird while she is warming up...

    Thanks guys -

    ARB's always an excellent option and you can use the factory diff lock switch :)

    Didn't know that FJ80s came with leather option. On another note (certainly not talking you into a 4Skinner), but I really like the looks of a 3rd gen. 4Runner lifted and with big tires.

    Looks like mine. Mine has leather too. :grinpimp:

    I dont feel at all bad for what I paid for mine and its just under what that one is. Aussie lockers will surely do anything she needs them too. Hell.....my lokrite gets me around very well. :D
