I have also taken all three of my Tacomas over some serious off road tracks in the deserts of California and Baja, Mexico... with no lift. The stock truck has over 9" of min. ground clearance so you sould be able to use some driving skills to steer around bigger rocks in the road.

the reg cab with 33s has the same ground clearance of a wrangler rubicon. and the wheelbase of the reg cab is shorter than the wrangler 4dr unlimited rubicon.

Toyota has to make vehicles that appeal the most people. I'm sure the average Off Road buyer rarely takes them off road so putting lifts on them would be pointless. Those that want to offroad their truck will spend the money to lift it how they want. Toyota would also have to offer different lifts so it would get expensive and complicated.

The problem is that people do fix up their vehicles with lifts and bumpers but they never go offroad.
