Looking into buying my first tacoma! I've wanted one forever, and finally getting ready to do it! Right now I'm looking at a 2006 prerunner trd sport (black) and a 2009 prerunner trd sport (white). Both have 60k miles and are in good shape. So my question is, with the LSD in the 06 and whatever it was that switched in the 09 model, which one is better for me? If i go with the prerunner instead of 4x4, i'm looking to do some mild off roading like going up the mountain a few times a year for snowboarding, down some trails for camping, and maybe through light sand going to the lake. One of my buddies is a huge off roader, and he says 06 sport with LSD will suit me better. Agree or disagree? I'm still trying to decide if i want to go with a 4wd, but i don't think i can make a good enough argument for it. Plus i've heard that getting good tires (i've been recommended the BGF all terrain) and putting weight in the back will be pretty much get me everywhere I need to go.
I appreciate the advice!
