    I thought I would put my TRD Off Road Package to the test this weekend, I was very pleased with the suspension and the rear locker. I didn't do anything really crazy, but we still had a lot of fun.

    I definitely needed the locker, the hill was 45+ degrees and the rear was spinning even with the locker on. Both tires at the same time.

    Here's one more pic to show the angle: this is with the front tires sitting over the top of the incline

    Nice, glad to know my truck is capable.

    When I went out and played in the rocks, I took pics. I noticed the pics never ever really convey how steep something really it.

    -- I thought the "TRD Off Road Package" was only on 4x4's. I may have to rethink my buying plans.
    Also - are you saying a PreRunner has a locking rear differential?

    I've got an 07 TRD Off Road Prerunner. Locking diffs are part of TRD OR whether Prerunner or 4x4. I don't know if that combo is still available on 08 or 09 models.

    That is actually why I went with the PreRunner, cost less and I can still have fun with it... just not too much fun.

    Funny you should mention that, I just gutted my bathroom and two adjacent closets to add a shower. I'll have to put up some pics latter.

    Cool, I have been fortunate, I have avoided such ordeals, I hope it all works out for you.
