    Toyota has pull a fast one by taking advantage of the letter of the law while rating the pre-runner.

    Somehow a reg cab 5-lug I4 is rated the same as a prerunner access cab I4. Except the pre-runner is 4 inches higher increasing wind resistance, bigger tires increasing rolling resistance, and lower gears increasing rpm, and a lot heavier.

    Pre-runners get closer to 4x4 rating than 5-lug from what i've seen posted.

    Recently traded in my 05 access cab prerunner 4cyl 5 speed with 91k on this little jewel....

    2008 reg cab SR5 prerunner with buckets/console and 51k on it. Last year this combo was availble IIRC.

    Only way to get reg cab with buckets now is 4wd/auto. Test drove one while getting the 08...it sucked worse than my 05 with 32s and 2.5 lift as far as acceleration/mpg. Only thing I liked was the new gauge faces.

    Was getting 17-18mpg in the 05 with big heavy 32" 18s and am getting 23-24mpg out of the 08 with 30" 16s...both 6 luggers
