You'll get a lot of opinions about it. It's not a locker per se, it's a limited slip differential. It requires some slipping of a wheel for it to transfer power to the other wheel.

It depends on the style of driving you want to do. If you want to do rock crawling it would be better to have a manual locker or an Aussie type locker. If you want something to provide extra traction in daily driving slippery conditions then a limited slip is nice because you don't have to worry engaging it - it's always on.

I'm not sure that particular LSD *is* a TRD part. The text is ambiguous. You'd have to call them to find out.

I've never run one, but I think $500 could be better spent elsewhere.
For $300 you can get more traction out of an Aussie Locker, or save up for your ARB.
