    I think I over simplifed a bit- the 2WD Offroad has an electronic locker in the rear....All the 4WD TRDs have the LSD....I think...

    Thats a negative. Regardless of 2x4 or 4x4 Sport edition TRDs are the only Tacomas that come with an LSD. The Off-Road TRDs come with an electronic locking differential (rear) whether it is a 2x4 or 4x4.

    The E-Locker acts in an identical manner to a open differential when not engaged. When engaged, the rear axle acts as a spooled axle with both axles being locked together.

    The pre-'09 second gen non-TRD Sport Tacomas did not, unless it was requested to be installed (you would remember the bill). Further more, you cannot install an LSD if you already have an E-Locker because the E-Locker goes where the LSD would be. The '09+ models have a electronic LSD which works by the brakes being individually applied to transfer power, although, this is not a mechanical LSD like what comes with the pre-'09 TRD Sports.

    SR5 Package #2 - $2,235
    Driver seat with lumbar adjustment; Front passenger seat fold-flat functions; Chrome grille; Body color front bumpers, chrome rear bumpers; Leather covered steering wheel; Luxury trim leather on gearknob and alloy look on dashboard; Windshield wipers with variable intermittent wipe; Trim level: SR5; Upgraded cloth/velour seat upholstery; Cruise control; Remote power locks; Illuminated entry system on interior; Driver and passenger power door mirrors; Driver vanity mirror; Sliding rear window; Front fog lights; Front power windows with one one-touch; Front pocket seat back storage; Privacy glass rear and rear side; Color-keyed overfenders; Wheel opening moldings; Requires: [VD] VSC w/Auto Limited Slip Differential; Excludes: [CP] Convenience Package #1 And [28] Shift Knob - Chrome Finish (PIO) And [29] Shift Knob - Titanium Finish (PIO) And [MU] TRD Quickshifter And [13] Graphite Cloth And [WR] Sliding Rear Window

    Mine is a 2000 TRD SR5 4X4 and has the electronic locker. Love it. Wish it also had a front locker and a lower low range, but then while I'm wishing.....

    This SR5 package comes with VSC. The VSC has a LSD as part of the control system. If an SR5 pakage does not come with VSC, it will not have a LSD.
