    I think the only way to tell is to look and see if there is a sticker on the diff calling for LSD fluid. Other than field testing of course .. You can see the sticker here from Chris4x4's diff thread..

    The correct term is standard differential :) vs limited slip

    My SR5 08 has a limited slip.

    I guess I lucked out. I researched Tacomas for almost a year before I purchased but I'm still learning.
