Question about front diff on 11' AC 2.7

Been trying to search this. I know on the OR models that the front diff is limited slip when 4wd is engaged. My question is does the 2011 SR5 4x4 2.7 ltr have the same diff or is it an open diff all the time. if this is a repetitive question -sorry in advance

All 09 and newer have TRAC/ALSD. All 4x4 have FOUR WHEEL TRAC/ALSD. It uses BRAKES to achieve the same effect as LSD -- clamp the brakes down on the wheel that is slipping to transfer power to the wheel with traction.

Note that non-OR does NOT have TRAC/ALSD in 4LOW, rather only in HIGH (ATRAC). Search yellow wire mod to enable it in LOW if you need this.
Ok got it. I initially thought that the off road model had the ability to send power to the wheel with the best traction (lsd). So on all models only one front wheel has power. Thanks
