Shouldn't be much of a difference between those years. TRD-Sport switched from a mechanical lsd to an auto lsd for 09 models, that is all I know about TRD Sports.
Regarding build quality, you are right, and I'd probably say my 2013 is built up to my spec, aside from the dash material/coating. But the 09-11 should be all on par with each other as far as build quality. There are a few who have traded in/sold their older 2nd gens and note nuances in the newer model build quality, but as to if their observations are facts or just the "percieved/paranoid" difference in build quality, no one has any concrete comparison that I have seen.
