HELP! How can I tell if a 2006 Tacoma is the Off Road version

So I'm thinking about buying a 2006 tacoma with the off road package.

How can I tell if it is indeed the off road package or not.

I'm thinking it might have the suspension tsb done and a fake Locking Rear button. What else should I look for, the vin search is inconclusive. Is it easy to tell if the locker is engaged on the street?

Does the 06 have a temp gauge and compass? In the mirror? I don't think I saw one...? Any other tell tell signs, the seats seam like better that what I have seen on other tacomas. Everything seems to be in place I'm just a little cautious. dont want to be taken by a sales guy.

Crawl under the rig near the rear axle. Look for something that looks like this. That will be the e-Locker actuator. That tells you that you have the rear locker.
