    I have a few questions that I cant seem to find the answers to, even after asking the dealership. Hopefully I have better luck here. First off Whats the difference in trims for the 2000 Tacoma (Base, SR5, Limited, DLX, and finally Prerunner). I know Prerunners are all 2wd, but anything else regarding things like in cab features? Was there a Tow Package that was available with the 2000 Taco?

    Also, these next few questions may be specific to my Tacoma, but how can I tell if I have ABS? Also, A.D.D. (Automatic disconnecting differential)

    I know theyre noobish but not even Toyota could help me out here. They were more interested in reading me the features of the 09 Tacomas...

    Oh! and where can I find a Tacomaworld Decal?

    i have a 2004 Double cab sr5 prerunner trd package. That comes with the ETC button, lockers and upgraded shocks the limited comes with all that and everything is color matched(bumpers and fender flares). I think maybe better speacker. Not 100% sure.

    for the abs, just take it to a gravel road and slam the breaks. you should feel it then. if not, just look in the fuse box. the add should have a button on the shifter to auto switch into 4wd, but if you are looking at a prerunner then it wont have anything

    Ah, ok.. so Limited is kinda like the "sport package' that they have out now for the 2nd gens. Wonder about DLX tho.

    I have 4x4 with Standard Transmission so there is no Automatic button (I think the 2 shifter knobs are really cool!) I'll have to try the whole gravel thing but I must admit, I dont think Ive ever driven a vehicle with ABS. Ill have to keep myself from pumping during the test.
