    I bought my truck used about 6 months ago and I was wondering if it was a TRD? Its a 1999 toyota tacoma prerunner with no TRD stickers, the original owner says that it never came with any. But it did come with bilstien shocks and a rear differential lock which I thought only came on the TRD edition...?

    Yes you do, unless the shocks and the diff lock button are fake.

    Ha no they are real and all work. I think the TRD stickers look sick I and I want to put some on but I just didnt want to put them on if my truck really wasnt a TRD.

    This makes me wonder is mine is TRD. It has the Bilstein shocks. And the locking Rear differential. It does not have any TRD stickers nor does it say TRD anywhere.:confused: It is a 1999 Tacoma Prerunner Xtra cab. It only has 70k on it too.

    This is legitimate use of the search function and revival of an older thread that seems to fit the situation perfectly.

    Prior to the '98 model year, it was possible to order a truck with an e-locker and it not be a "TRD" model. Having said that, the heart of the TRD package is the locker. My guess is that your truck came from the factory as a TRD. Most likely, someone removed the stickers along the way.

    honestly a repost of something that has been asked 1000 times usually gets people more mad. But if you revive a 3 yearold thread to make a stupid pointless comment that is not really needed, thats pretty dumb too. reviving a 3 year old (yes i know this is not a 3 year old thread, its just an example)"do i have a prerunner" thread to ask and/or confirm if you have a pre runner is fine and encouraged. reviving the 3 year old "do i have a prerunner" thread to tell the OP that he does in fact have a pre runner, is pointless and un unnecessary.

    It could be.

    Keep in mind though you could order the locker from the factory on certain models.
