Question Newbie Q:

Hey Everyone, Looks Like A Great Place For Info And Folklore On Toyota's! Could Abyone Help Out With A Q: On A New Tacoma 4x4?
I'm Thinking Of Getting An 07' But Want To Know How It Will Do Off Road. The Guys At The Dealership Had No Idea.

Q:when You Select 4wd (hi Or Lo). Will It Be Fully Locked-can I Do Some Rock Crawling? Or Will I Get Two Wheels In The Air And Start Spining?

Someone Please Help!!

The new Tacoma's are very capable. This is NOT a tube chassis rock crawler however.

The TRD OFF-ROAD package comes with a locking rear differential. The front is an open diff. So, you essentially have 3 wheels spinning no matter what when your locked.

Throw a 3" lift and some decent 33's and you will have a pretty damn capable rig. You may want to put some body armor on as well.

I APPRECIATE THE INPUT. THE MODEL I WAS LOOKING AT DID NOT HAVE THE OFF ROAD PKG. SO THEN I'LL HAVE TWO WHEELS LOCKED EVEN IN 4LO.?

Yeah, basically, you will have open diffs on both ends. So if you get two wheels in the air. no-go.
