Can you upgrade a 2013 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner to a TRD package?
My parents surprised me with a 2013 Tacoma Prerunner Doublecab for getting a scholarship, and I was wondering if I could upgrade it to the TRD package now that it has been purchased. It has the prerunner and sr5 package, but I would like to upgrade it to the TRD package if possible. Can I do it?
I'm really wanting to do the whole package. I am not extremely knowledgeable about working on cars other than changing the oil and stuff like that, but was curious as to whether or not it could be done.

Which parts of the TRD package are you most interested in? The most noteworthy component in the TRD off-road package is the electrically-actuated rear differential locker. This is a possible add-on from a donor axle equipped with the locker. You can also add a differential locker from a different manufacturer, such as ARB, Powertrax or Eaton. A set of Bilstein shock absorbers are not too difficult to add (easier in the back than the front). The wheels and tires can be swapped from a TRD Tacoma. Check your local Craigslist. If it's the TRD bedside stickers you're interested in, you can buy them online and stick them on...likely, no one will be the wiser.
***It can be done. Whether or not it would be worth it is another story. Each TRD package includes a bunch of stuff. It'd likely be easier to swap trucks if you really need all of it.
