Prerunner vs 4WD stance

I was at a stoplight and a Prerunner pulled up next to me. It appears to me that the prerunner sits higher. Is this my imagination? If not, can I do the same to my truck? I am not quite ready to commit to a full on lift just yet...

Per runners are a little lighter due to no transfer case, front drive shafts, ect.
Less weight = higher ride height?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Toyota lists the heights as being the same. Any difference would be less than 1/2" if that.

As mentioned probably had a lift on it. You could throw in an AAL and some 5100's for a nice stance that doesn't break the bank.

id say stock they should sit about even, but after a lift is installed there probably will be a more noticeable difference. Andrew H and I have the exact same lift and since mine is a prerunner it did sit a bit higher. im positive its cuz the transfer case and all that heavier stuff on the 4x4

I used to sell Toyotas and bought an "07 new, regular cab 4X2 prerunner. I seem to remember in the brochure that the 4X2 prerunner was listed as being .5" taller than the 4X4. (ground clearance). Not sure why, also had a Jeep Liberty and 4X4 was indeed lower than 4X2. Currently I have my beloved '11 Tacoma 4X4 Reg Cab, auto......sweetest ride ever. When I die, it will be buried with me !
