    No. It is open when unlocked. The newer trucks has Auto LSD but that uses the brakes.

    Front diff is OPEN in ALL tacomas from the factory.

    Did you buy the truck used? Unless the person before you put something in there, its hard to say WHAT it is. You gotta give us more information.

    Even with an open diff you will spin both wheels if traction is equal. There is no single traction wheel like so many think there is.

    Typically when one becomes stuck... one tire per axle has less traction than the other so you see one spinning in the front and one spinning in the rear. This is open differentials.

    A-TRAC or LOCKERS elimintate non traction tires from spinning so torque goes to tires with traction and you drive out.

    Limited Slip system REDUCE torque to non trction tires and divert some to traction tires to help you move on.
