    I have a Prerunner sr5. I was kind of curious how capable it is since it only has 2 wheel drive. I would love to see your prerunner off road videos if you have some!

    That's pretty impressive for being stock. It looked like you made pretty good time.

    ha I don't, I have the sr5. So, I'm not sure what I have. One website said I have limited slip, an other one said I have an open differential. Either way it isn't a locker :/ I've had it three years and I haven't gotten stuck once. (knock on wood)

    there both sr5? sr5 means its the 6 lug suspension geometry and V6 motor. the "prerunner" tacoma is the 3.4L in 2wd with either TRD sport or TRD offroad edition. they called it the "prerunner" model after Toyota Racing Development (TRD) in 95' with Ivan Stewart, after his success they made the 2wd 3.4L called the prerunner because most prerunners and desert vehicles are 2wd. Not to mention the TRD crew took the older failure 3.0 motor and made it a DOHC engine and simplified it and made it 1000x better down in the races and so after successfully racing the motor they put it in production with tacoma's in 95' and gave the TRD team credit by calling them "prerunner" models. thats right your motor was built off of successful racing with Iron man Stewart with Toyota's own racing team. Trd offroad has the locker, trd sport as an additional ECU inside? idk nothing interesting. and then they have the TRD offroad and TRD sport in 4x4 as well. so if your truck is the prerunner model with the TRD off-road package u have the locker. if u have the TRD sport then u just have 1 wheel peel im afraid. anyway i just wanted to clarify and thought u might find those very unknown facts interesting about your truck

    You won't find any Prerunners rock crawlers but they're still pretty capable. Just gotta be smart about where you go and who you go with if you off road with a 2wd truck.

    SR5 is a trim package.
