    I went by a dealership at lunch today & they had two 2012 Tacoma's. One was an Off Road 4x4 and the other one was a Sport Prerunner.

    The Off Road has a 3 leaf pack and the Sport has a 4 leaf pack. Has anybody else noticed this and I wonder why the difference?

    I wish they had more 2012's so I could see if the one Off Road I looked at was fluke or if all 4x4's have 3 leaf packs and Prerunner's have 4 leaf packs.

    Was the 3 leaf one an access cab , and the 4 leaf one a doublecab ?

    This seems to be how it is being reported in the 2012 mega derp thread

    The Sport & Off Road were both double cabs, not access cabs.

    Arent the TRD shocks blue and yellow ones? the four leaf pack next to them? The SR5 had the 4 leaf pack, people are saying the four leaf only came on the sport.

    Thank you Sairs. I was looking for those pics. I will most likely buy one of these and would prefer the 4-leaf pack. Good news for me!

    I wonder if having the tow package makes a difference? Or whether its all DC's (sans OR models) that have the 4-leaf.

    Bump for an answer on whether or not the 4 leaf pack comes in the 2012 TRD Off-Road Double Cab Short Bed. I may buy one tomorrow. The truck WILL come with the tow package.

    Thanks,

    My two day old DCSB SR5 has the four leaf pack. The SR5's (all of the 2012's I think?) come with the tow package.

    If the dealer has the truck you want on the lot, I suggest you go and have a look at the exact truck you intend to buy, to be safe.
