    Not new to trucks but new to the Tacoma's (always driven Ford Rangers 2wd)

    I have to buy a 4 door vehicle late this year or early next year for work (crossing my fingers for a good 2010 diesel)

    I like the double cab 4x4 with the 6ft bed.

    I really like the Off-road package for the e-locker and wheels/tires but it seems you can only get that with DC 5ft beds.

    So i have been looking at the Sport Packages.

    I have read a few threads but not much out there giving a field test of the Auto-LSD's. Can anyone with direct experience comment on off-road capability, boat ramps, no rock crawling crazy stuff just general offroad/muddin use of this system?

    On the other hand, anyone have trouble hauling 12ft 2x4's out of their 5ft bed?

    PS
    Drove an 09 TRD Offroad saturday and was very impressed

    yea thats the one with a 6ft bed. You cant get an offroad package on that one though. You can get the sport package with the auto-lsd.
