e-locker compatibility

I have a '99 4Runner with v6/auto/e-locker that I need to have rebuilt. What are my options for direct replacement? Years for 4Rs and Tacos. V6 only? Auto only? I'm not worried about ratio because I can run 2wd until mine comes back.

Basically I need to know if an e-locked 3rd from an ‘03 Taco axle code B03A will directly bolt into my e-locked rear ‘99 4R housing axle code A04A?

If you trust the axle codes then one is a 7.5" ring gear and the other is an 8".....they don't interchange.

an option......I can rebuild your 3rd.

Zuk!!! I’m trying to get something usable so I can ship MY 3rd to you. No truck or a rental for 3 weeks isn’t feasible.

With your expertise, would the B-code 3rd fit and run for 500 miles (40 miles at a time) in my A-code axle housing?

The confusion I'm running into is the conflicting information on the internet and nobody having hard numbers.

This page decodes a 2001 Tacoma with axle code B04A as an 8" with 4.56:

But the same company decodes A's as 8" and B's as 7.5"

To start with the syran wrap question, no. The axle shafts are supported by the carrier. Doing this will promptly destroy the rear wheel bearings. If I was in your position, instead of trying to find another e-locked third to use as a temporary replament I would look for another assembled open housing for a 3rd gen runner. It would cost less than a e-locked third and be much easier to find. Plus its close to the same amount of work the swap out. The only real down fall is finding a place to store it afterwards. A third is much easier to shelve than an entire axle.

Kolton you genius. All this time I’ve been trying to make a used 3rd fit my housing, when I had a non-locked housing with a trashed 3rd in my driveway.
