Question Sigh...2005 Tacoma SR5 Diff. Question!

Hey guys, before you take me out to the pasture and shoot me, while I was working on my truck today I noticed on my rear end the sticker said "LSD Fluid Only". Now, I have a 2005 4x4 SR5 that I bought used when the truck was 6 months old. Just wondering if this sounds normal or not? I didnt think I had LSD and this may be a very simple answer to a dumb question. (I am sorry then.) Yes, I searched for awhile.

PS. I always took my truck to the dealer to get the fluids changed. I dated the owners daughter so it was REAL cheap

Some SR5s had a LSD diff. If you have the sticker then you have LSD.

One last question: I assume this is auto LSD since I have no in-dash buttom. This is the brakes/computer LSD correct? ......Or am I ass-backwwards

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
