    5.29 Regear on stock

    I'm considering changing out my stock differential on a 2017 4x4 TRD-OR. Is there anyone who has made the gear change but kept the truck mostly stock? Pros and cons? Did anyone add a front locker as a part of the change?

    Yesterday I re-did my diff breather mod because I wasn't happy with it being relocated inside of the bed storage cubby. This time I mounted it behind the driver's side tail light using all pre-existing holes in the body and frame. Installation is extremely simple and the end result is much...
