I have 4.56 gears with a locker. I was looking at 5.29. Could I use my old locker with 5.29.

heh mike how's it going it's Nick. You don't want 5:29's who's got you going on that. Your 4:56's are way better than 5:29's, they are awsome for rocks crawling but your truck is going to be way slower and any aftermarket gears are about 30-40% weaker than your toyota gears go dual transfer case like i'am save'in up for it's the best way to go. As soon as that snow melts were all doing a camping 4x4 explortion trip.

Do you have a Toyota Electric Locker, because if you do I'll trade you mine with 4:10's (as your regearing anyway) and I want 4:56's. Trade plus a little cash of course!

Why are stock gears stronger than aftermarket? I thought that they all used the same metal except the precision stainless gears

Just because the next guy has frosted tips, an earing, and a jeep doesn't mean have to!

because as you go numerically higher in gears the gears become smaller.

I understand that as the gear goes lower there's more cut out of the pinion. I was just wondering why stockers were stronger than aftermarket 30-40%

You're both right. When referring to gears, lower means a higher numerical number. Think of it this way, lower = slower.

Buddy of mine brought up an interesting question, the new electric lockers that come in the Yotas, can they be used in the front as well??
