I need some in-depth technical advice!
I will be buying a 2nd gen Tacoma soon (likely 05-08) and want input on whether I should be looking for a TRD Sport or Off-Road, or if it really doesn't matter one bit considering my concerns below.
Based on my budget, the truck I buy will likely have around 100,000 miles on it and once in my possession will be used as both a daily commuter on the highway and my hunting truck (by hunting I mean it will be pushing through two feet of snow, not rock crawling). I want to have locking differentials in both the front and rear (I currently have an '01 Tacoma with front and rear lockers and they do phenomenal in deep snow which is what the lockers are needed for).
So here is my question:
*Would it be more advantageous to get a TRD Sport and put the full setup in at once, or to get the TRD Off-Road and just have to worry about adding the front diff locker? What are the advantages to both routes and if you were in my position, what type of setup would you want to put in your truck if it was being used for this purpose, taking into consideration the mileage of the truck when I buy it?*
