E locker rear end

I'm going to the pick and pull to pull an e locker rear end and front diff in the morning. What else do I need to pull? Ecu is already gone.

Might need the wiring from the diff into the car, check your car first. Possibly need the wiring from there up front as well.

I've heard that many 3rd gens are pre-wired for it to a certain extent, but that wasn't the case on my wife's '96 manual SR5. She ended up wiring that one from scratch.

I'd look for rust on the axle housing (perforated rear cover). Also look for rust in the e-locker actuator, or water contamination inside. It's a pricey little thing.

I guess another thing - look for bent axles. Many cars that end up in junkyards got wrecked, a hard hit to a wheel can bend the axle shaft. You can swap that out from your non-locker axle though.

Are you pulling the whole rear axle or just the 3rd member? I assume you know the 3rd member won't just drop into your existing housing correct?
