    Dude, you just bought it and your thinking of modding it to add lockers? You should have gotten the TRD off-road, it comes with an e-locker. The sport does not. Anyway, you can put lockers on a DD but they are expensive, at least for something selectable. The cheaper ones are always locked which is not good for a DD.

    To be a serious wheelin daily driver, all you have to do is change the tires!
    Tacoma's are outstanding four wheel drives, only the stock tires limits its abilities.
    I recommend goodyear Duratracs, great traction in all conditions.
    After that its up to you on serious you want to go.

    Just don't go cheap on parts and you will be fine. Also have fun with it but remember it has to get you to work.
