Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum here. I don't own a Tacoma, yet, but I'm looking for some advice on which one to buy. I hope I'm putting this question in the right spot and I apologize if I'm not. My question is another "what's best for me" type but I browsed through the new member and other forums and didn't find this specific question asked by a newbie so I figured I'd go for it. Again, I apologize this information is somewhere else and I missed it. So, I'm looking for some in thoughts on Off-Road package vs. Sport Package. Quick bio:
I live in southeast PA and I'm shopping for this truck mainly because I live out in the sticks and snow removal in my township/county can be downright awful at times. So I need a good 4x4 for the winter months. That is if we ever get winter again here. I also do lots of fishing and hunting. I don't plan on doing much off-roading but there are a few things I want to do. I would say that this truck would potentially spend 90% of its life on the road and is definitely going to be my daily driver. However, I do plan to go surf fishing in some Delaware State Parks which requires driving on the sand and I do go hunting where I'd get semi-off trail on some poorly maintained logging trails. So my real question is: do I need a TRD Off-Road with the locking rear diff. or can I get by with a limited-slip in a TRD Sport or even just SR5? I'm mostly worried about the sand part if I'm honest.
Any input is greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time.
