    So I have a 2011 trd sport 4x4 I was wonder what's out there aftermarket wise as far as limited slip differentials. My truck doesn't not have a mechanical limited slip just the electronic brake controlled autoLsd is there anything out there I could install to get a bit more traction? Thanks

    Don't sell the auto LSD short just yet. I have a pre-runner with Auto LSD and had reservations about it's ability to pull my boat up a very steep and slippery ramp I use once a year. I had no problem at all. It got me up the ramp just fine, the same ramp that my Silverado spun on the year before and had to be pulled up. I'm still not sure what the limits are for the auto LSD but I'm cautiously optimistic.

    I agree. I have a '12 4x4 Offroad and a '07 4x4 Sport. The '07 has a real LSD, the '12 has auto LSD. I can hear the solenoids working on the '12, but that's the only difference I've been able to tell as far as LSD performance - the auto LSD works just as well. The auto LSD is also for both front & rear axles in 4Hi vs just the rear for '07 true LSD and it makes a noticeable difference. If you are experiencing a lack of traction w/ your auto LSD you need to upgrade to lockers as a conventional LSD won't make any significant traction improvement.
