Can you get a tacoma with lockers from the factory?
Being debt free would be nice.... but will you truely be happy with the 2WD Tundra? Obviously, the limited slip was 'needed' (per say) in the 2WD Tundra.I guess my real question is about 4x4 vs 2 wd with limited slip. Was thinking of trading my tundra with limited slip for a 4x4 tacoma or one with lockers. After some research and much debate I have realized I just want a new truck and there is no reason for the switch. Let me explain.
We are just getting over the 5th worst winter in Iowa history as far as snow fall debth. My 2005 tundra has only limited slip. I use my truck for hauling, pulling a boat, and do not off road although I am an avid hunter and fisherman. Guess I am looking for an excuse to get a 4x4. But, all of this being said.....I have not been in a situation yet that I have not been able to rock out of......I have not got stuck, never had a problem getting my boat out even on a steep ramp, and even ice storms have not stopped me from reaching my destination......so I guess I have answered my own question, I should just keep my truck and be free of payments in one year instead off taking on more debt.
5th worst winter in history? Not possible with all of the global warming going on.
Hey warts, serious question. How much could I get rear lockers for? I have never had them before. I am assuming you would have to have 4wd for front lockers.I have lockers front & rear in my taco (ARB aftermarket) very happy with the purchase.
but i do alot of offroad excursions.
somone mentioned above lockers are not for driving around on snowy roads. thats why i wanted lockers over LSD.
lsd i find will get your tail end squirly sometimes too. i would rather have 1 front wheel with power and 1 rear wheel with power for everyday driving!
and lock the truck up as needed. usally just the rear lockers, unless i am in trouble then i will lock up the front & back. she pretty much will go anywhere you point it. within reason!
I'll jump in and I am sure Warts can answer as well.Hey warts, serious question. How much could I get rear lockers for? I have never had them before. I am assuming you would have to have 4wd for front lockers.
I am assuming that aftermarket lockers come with touch controls.........thanks for the info.
