the difference is the pre-runner is two wheel drive with the ride height of a 4x4.

5 lug = Taco with an I4 and 2wd. It sits very low to the ground.

PreRunner = Taco 2wd, with I4 or V6 Engines, and has he same suspension and ground clearence of the 4x4.

4x4 = Taco with the ability to power all for wheels

X Runner = 5 Lug Taco with the V6 engine. Only available in access cab with a 6 speed manual, comes with a body kit and some good looking wheels.

The term itself originated from the Baja racing circuit. Pre-Runners were, just as the name implies, trucks built to pre-run the course before the actual race. Pilot and navigator, or other team members, would take the pre-runner truck out to learn the course at a slightly more leisurely pace than they would be racing it for real. So basically WE PRERUNNERS run a circiut before them 4x4 guys get their toes wet

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

To be a little more accurate, A Prerunner is the same chasis and suspension of the 4x4. The only thing different is the lack of a transfer case, front diff. and front drive shafts. Oh, and the rear drive shaft is longer since there is no T case. FWIW, Even the spindles on a Prerunner are the same as a 4x4. They just have a cap on them since a front dive shaft is not going thru them.
