    I did search and I didn't find all the info in one place (perhaps I didn't search well enough).

    So is this correct?

    05-08 TRD Sport = Mechanical LSD
    09+ TRD Sport = Auto LSD

    05-08 TRD Offroad = Rear Locker (some with TRAC as an option)
    09+ TRD Offroad = Rear Locker with ATRAC

    Non TRD versions had open differentials with some having added LSD as an option?


    Thanks.
