Gday All, I've had a search but come up with nothing. I was after peoples experience or knowledge on the reliability and use of the Toyota factory lockers. I know they are electrically operated and about a $2200 option. Being factory fitted i would assume that the 3yr warranty would apply. Are they a good/bad option or would air lockers be a better.
Any advice would be appreciated

Cheers
Al

DiesAl,
Dont know about current model but I had a 1988 75 series with factory fitted diff-locks. They were cable operated and I found them to be simple to use and capable of taking on any gnarly track I needed there assistance on. Vehicle sold with 350000k on the clock and still performing well

Factory lockers might finish up dearer than the nominal price as you might find it harder to negotiate a good deal on a vehicle with factory lockers compared to one without. When I looked for my trayback no dealer at the time seemed to keep stock of vehicles fitted with diff locks. They would get them if the customer wanted. This could be different now.

They are excellent value, covered by the full factory warranty and work perfectly. A standard fit on any LC 70 series we purchase

Hi Al,
I have the factory lockers on my 79. When they turn on they work well, just a little slow soemtimes to engage but not a real problem. Since they are factory they're covered by warranty and removes the need to run unnecessary air lines.

Hi DiesAl
We have factory lockers on our 1995 75 series troopy have had not issues have done some extreme off road. Purchased vehicle in 2004 with 298000 and now have approx 350000klms on it. We seem to do the same amount as the vehicles with air lockers with no problems at all.
