4X4 Conversion or ELocker
I have a 02 Ranger Edge that is 2wd. It is a great truck with really low miles, and I like it a lot except for the terrible off road abilities. I am a poor college kid so I really don't have a whole lot of cash, but my major and interests take me some pretty remote places at times, and I would really like to have more confidence in not getting stuck. I have researched this forum a good bit about converting Edge's to 4wd, but I know that finding some of the parts are really hard and the conversion is pretty involved. I have a friend with a Toyota Prerunner and an electronic differential. My question is, how much difference will an electronic differential make on my ranger? Is getting a good one like the Eaton ELocker worth the $750 + install? Could an auto shop install on and about how much do they cost to install?
