Pre-runner vs. X-Runner?

What's the difference? I suspect that my Taco is a X-runner or some sort but I'm not sure. How can I tell? I know this seem to be the dumbest question but I have to ask. Fairly new to the taco world.

The Xrunner has more frame bracing, 18" wheels, it is lowered about an inch, ground effects kit, and the Xrunner has a different final drive ratio.

You do not have either of the two.

X-runners are 5 luggers, have a body kit and an X-brace for the rear to stiffen the frame.

I know I know!!! I wasn't thinking too much of a truck but ended up buying it kinda deal.

I was looking at an upscale SUV instead but ended up with this TACO as an offer by the stealership ! I hope that answers your question.

Yeah i just found it odd that someone would buy a truck before knowing what it was. I guess those terms don't matter to you though.

Like they have said before, the main difference is suspension.

Xrunners have a completely different front suspension compared to a prerunner. where a prerunner has the same suspension as a 4x4 but is only 2wd.

i have a 5lug base model which suspension wise is almost the same as an xrunner except for the shocks/struts/coils

xrunners also get their name from the x brace which is like an x at the rear of the frame for stiffness

Obviously not as you can tell . I was shoping online and the only trim options listed are BASE, PRERUNNER, OR X-RUNNER. Does that mean the TRD Off-Roads and TRD Sports are out of the question?

X-Runner = lowered 5-lug 2WD with 18" rims and a rear swaybar.
Pre-Runner = 2WD 6-lug with 4x4 suspension

For most accessories, select Prerunner.
The only difference is your 4x4 has a transfer case and front driveline.

X-Runner


Pre-Runner


Base


Everyone pretty much pointed out what the main difference the X-Runner is from everyone else except mentioning the X-Runner is only available with a 6 speed manual and in Access Cab/Long bed configuration.
