No A-Trac and no Locker

I have a DCSB without lockers, without A-Trac, and no lift. Do you guys think that I could get around with the rest of you at Shoecreek or windrock/coal creek and other wheelin places in our region? I do have plans for ARB lockers and a little bit of lift later on but right now im strapped for cash (truck payments).

I have an SR5 4x4 Open/Open and I have yet to run into anything I couldn't get through. You just have to make sure you pick a good line and approach.

I have gotten to a point climbing over an off camber slick rock that if I had a locker, I would have gone over just fine however after a little spinning the tires I got over it w/ the open diff.

4x4 will go a long way! The other stuff just makes harder stuff easier.

As they say... the traction aids just make it easier to get there or get out... Lowering air presure and adding weight to an empty bed will do wonders for traction.

A-TRAC wasn't available on Tacomas until 2009, anyway... You next truck perhaps?
