Ok, so slip diff is better for handeling, and rear lock is better for offroad. what if I had a slip with 4x4, wouldnt that be best of both worlds? Am I missing something?

limited slip with 4x4 would be decent for limited off-road. But if you want to be serious about off-road you need a locker.

If you want to be serious about off-road you need a chopped-up trail rig.

Been discussed at length, and seriously, either would be fine. Choose your truck based on the other equipment it comes with, and consider price if it matters to you. If you prefer a hood scoop, buy a Sport. If you want fewer features and a lower price, get an SR5 (with optional lsd). Or get an Off Road if you like the features it comes with. And there are cosmetic differences (wheels, chrome/black/color for grilles, mirrors, bumpers...). Don't worry about which diff it comes with -- it will do what you need (& want) it to.

There was a thread a while back about bed lengths, during which I poked fun at short beds (just for something to do, I honestly don't give a crap one way or the other.) I should change it, I just haven't bothered to yet.

Doesn't sound like you need a locker... the LSD will handle most off-road situations that 98% of drivers will encounter.

As someone who drives in snow alot, I perfer the LSD. Its always 'on', no matter 2wd or 4wd. So it provides maximum traction all the time. But it requires more driver attention in 2wd with junk tires... The backend can come around quicker than same truck w/ open diff.

With bed extender, I you've got a 6.5 ft bed, but you can still fit boards and skiis crossways in the 5ft bed.
