any help is appreciated!!
The difference is that the Access Cab PreRunner has the same suspension as the 4x4. I've had my 2013 Access Cab PreRunner with the 2.7/Auto since the end of August. I track my mileage consistently and the very best highway mileage is 22.4. My worst in-town mileage has been 16.9. Common wisdom says that the base 5 lug will get 1 to 3 mpg better than the PreRunner. I absolutely love my truck. I think you've made a good choice.
