    Hi all,

    I just purchased a 2008 dc sb prerunner trd offroad. It is completely stock at the moment. I love to offroad and want to start going once in a while. I know i dont have 4x4 but i like to do as much as i can do. But i have a few Question:

    1. How exactly does the rear diff lock work and when is it appropriate to use it? Only when you get stuck? when your doing something tricky?

    2. I want to lift it but only a little. I want to fit 33" mud tires on it. Will the revtec 3inch lift work? If not....what lift should i buy? I do not want to have to do any cutting or trimming and no rubbing of course.

    3. How capable is my truck offroading?

    Please fill me in! I would deeply appreciate it! Thanks

    welcome man.


    I'd say this about capability;

    I'd trust a stock taco over the most mod'ed jeep anyday.

    Cuz my tacoma (even if it had a locker) would never keep up with my jeep.
