    Just wondering a prerunner means that the truck is 2WD right? If so is the TRD Offroad Prerunner just a different suspension?

    Thats what i thought it looks like a street truck. Sorry I dont know much about this locker, if it doesn't make your front wheels spin, then how does it help you get out of the mud?

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    4wd = front wheels spinning
    2wd = rear wheels spinning only
    1) open diff
    2)limited slip
    3) locker

    Locker makes both wheels spin together at the same rate regardless of what they are on, limited transfers power, and open lets the force take the path of least resistance

    Oh I understand now. So do you guys use this offroad feature a lot to go through some mud, or do you not use it unless you are stuck?

    it would be ultimate in mud if you had it. but i can specific about its greatest uses. I know crawlers have them.

    edit: guess i should have just edited my last post. my bad.

    The Locker works really well in mud, but (at least in my opinion) really NOT well in snow and ice.

    Even though I live 30 miles from a ski resort, some years I just don't ever need 4wd. I got my PreRunner OR for many reasons, but mostly because I sit up high and can see what's going on, not worry about clearance on the trails and fire roads, and its a bitchin' looking truck that is comfortable and has more than enough power for me.

    When the snow comes I throw sandbags in the bed and be careful not to get in a bad situation.

    For me, $20 in sandbags beats an extra $3k for 4wd.

    nothing compares to 4x4, but a locker does make a 2wd very capable
