    Just got a 12 Double with the Off Road package. First time Tacoma owner but I lurked for a month to get more information prior to purchase. I think I got a decent deal, 500 under invoice. Got rid of my 2001 Xterra which was rusting away.

    Ill likely be scouring the forum to see about installing a CB, light Mods, something to cover the bed, etc. Mine will be primarly a commuter as I will drive 30K a year.

    Coming from an Xterra, I was looking for something with the LSD or Rear Lockers, not sure what to think of the Electronic LSD, so I opted for the off road package.

    Well, all Tacomas have TRAC and in 4WD HI, it really adds to the trucks climbing and sand driving abilities over non-TRAC 4WD Tacomas (I had 2 before my 2010).

    The A-TRAC in 4WD LOW is such a great feature and nice that we don't need to spend thousands for a front locker just to have that kind of traction on the front end in low range.

    Have a great time with your new truck!
