Specifically when in edit mode and wanting to extrude along a specific axis orientation, you can set Transform Orientations to cursor. enter image description here

Then in the view panel, set the cursor rotation to the orientation you want to extrude along. enter image description here

Then simply extrude. Pressing the key E starts an extrusion, then you press the axis key you want ie Z, you can use mouse to set visually, or then just enter the number value.

Press Enterto commit the extrusion. Alternately you can set Transform Orientations to normal, setting Transform Orientations to local will refer to the objects transform orientation.
