    What is the current used private pricing on a stock e-lockered rear chunk?

    I have a line on one for a certain amount and can swap that sucker right into my 91 using the e-locker control from http://www.inchwormgear.com/ ($75)

    What's the word?

    Thanks!

    Dan,

    I have not tried to purchase a used locker rear diff. I can tell you that a new one lists for just under 1,300 bucks (off today, can't tell ya to the penny ::) ). Often junk yards try for half the new price. I would say anything over about 650 bucks is getting kinda close to what you could get a brand spankin' new one for (if ya know where to shop ;) ).

    Aside from housing mods I am not too intimidated by the install.

    the price I have lined is way less than of your lowest price...may be worth it!!

    Thanks!

    Guys,...guys,

    All I said was anything over 650 was a bit much, I wasn't trying to sell one for that ::) . I don't do used..... ;)

    I'd say 450 was very fair. :banana:

    Where did you find it, on the SOR web site? I was looking on their site and couldn't find it.
    They are $500 at Cruiserparts but they are out of stock :'(
    If I could get a low mi one, I then wouldn't have to rebuild mine plus I would get a actuator that is not in 3 pieces 8)

    It would be nice to go in with someone that needs the diff but the actuator and split the charge :-*

    Doesn't your 91 have a SF rear end? For some reason I though the e-locker required a FF rear end.

    Otherwise I would love to put one in my 55.

    The e-locker can be installed in a SF axle, I do not know the specifics. Theferg is in the middle of doing something along those lines.

    I don't think the electric locker can be installed in the rear land cruiser semi-floating axle [could be wrong, whats new :flipoff2:]. The toy semi-floater requires the c-clip to hold the axles in place - so the locker will not fit.

    In fact, I'm getting like Junk, and I know it won't fit ;).

    It does fit the FJ front FF axles.
    - lock axle in locked position, slip in housing
    - replace a couple of diff studs, which need to be a little longer
    - install longer splined, short side axle, i.e. front, short side axle from a 70 series, Downey, CV Unlimited, etc
    - wire up the actuator, use factory actuator controllers / relays, or cable attachment

    The Downey kit is for 40 and 60 to add 80 third member using a cable to lock the diff. The kit comes with axle, cable and a block to mount where the actuator goes.
    Maybe it won't work on a SF. That wouldn't be the first thing Downey sells that doesn't work.

    Well, the secret was I am trying to get a FF rear end w/o locker and the chunk with the locker to mate together.

    pricing is looking good too...who knows!!

    If that was directed towards me, yes, there is a blue light price. Send me an email or PM and I'm sure we can work something out so you'll soon have a locker in the rear. :D
