well i was driving on some really tore up and loose sand and ended up getting burried to the rear axle. at least i know the LSD works pretty damn well. another guy we were w/ has a lifted f150 on 35x12.5's bfg m/t's and got stuck as soon as we got to the beach, so i beat him on the first run and didnt get stuck until he came to a complete stop. m/t's are ass for the sand, lemme tell ya. there were lil mazda mini suv's scooting past and it made me sick...lol if i'd have been able to keep going, i'd have been ok. those back wheels were both definately kicking up some stuff. now i've pretty much gotten the ok from the wife to get an 09 4x4 if i want.....but i love ol blacky, so i dunno. i think i'll just make my old 71 c-10 into my trail playtoy and keep my truck i have...have to think about it and go see how much an 09 4x4 black sport would run...lol i love the sport and having a locker really wouldnt matter anyhow if i get the sport in 4x4...so who knows...i'm about to go see if the 09's are on toyota.com...and if not i'll go look at my dealer this weekend and see if they have any on hand....choices choices...
Does anyone know for sure if anything other than the offroad will have any kind of LSD/locker with the traction control? I think the general consensus is that the Offroad will have the locker, and prob have the traction control disabled in 4Low.
Some type of traction adding rear diff is just as much needed with 4WD as with 2WD; cause if you let it dig down and bury the axles, you will find out you have 1 front and 1 rear spinning only; and 3 is better than 2.
