    Still trying to decide on a new vehicle. Not sure I really need a 4x4 - only need it sometimes. Can I buy a stock Prerunner with a locking rear differential? That might be the way for me to go.

    Thanks.

    The Prerunner with the TRD Off Road has the locking diff.

    where do you live? ever needed it in past?
    all my previous tacomas were 4wd and i only needed once when i lived in virginia but even then i could have used 2wd. i bought my current prerunner with the rear diff so that if i got somewhere that i shouldn't be it could probably get me out. it took me some time to realize its ok to not have a 4wd and that i didn't need it. a good set of tires is also an important key to it. hope this helps.
