    What kind of rear end does my 2010 Prerunner SR5 have? Is it limited slip
    or what they call an "open" rear end? I asked this question on the 2nd generation site and no one must have known. I have the towing package, 16" wheels, and automatic tranny.

    If you still have your window sticker it should say on that. I know that my 08 Sport says LSD on the rear axle. You could probably look there also.

    You have an open rear end with Auto LSD. It works through the brakes.

    Thanks for the answer, whippersnapper. So is what I have the same as what used to be called positraction? I live in Oklahoma and often have to go
    through water holes to get to my fishing spots. The soil is sandy so there's
    always a firm bottom, but it can be a couple of feet down. My old '78 GMC
    short bed non-positrac would plow right through, but I had some pretty aggressive mudgrips. I skeptical of the stock Dunlops on my Tacoma and am wondering if the rear end setup I have will be of any help.

    The Auto LSD locks up the wheel with no traction. It works very well but if you are trying to go through massive mud pits you will overheat the system. Push the VSC button and Auto LSD should show.
