    I was at toyota today getting my plates. I parked next to 2012 sport, I have a 2012 OR. Did you guys know the sport rear end is several inches higher than the OR? maybe cause of the 4 leaf pack?

    wheels them self should not change it. TIRE size will. but the hight of the tires should be the same.

    not the wheels. probably the springs like whippersnapper said.

    or maybe the lack of ATRAC equipment isn't weighing it down.:D

    Wait, what? How can it be just me? Parked next to the truck, level ground (concrete for the matter) and the sport was 2-3 inches higher than my truck. How is that just me?

    If I remember, my dad has a '07 Sport and I think the sticker on his said something about a lift? I'll look for it when I get a chance and post a pic of it...

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    If the rear end was 2-3 inches higher, that Tacoma must've had some serious rake in the back...

    Sometimes dealers put 3in spacer lifts on trucks... Check the sticker and it'll say.. The dealer I got my truck from had a sport prerunner with 3in spacer lift. At the time I wanted it but didn't get it cuz it was a short bed... Now I'm glad I didn't waste money on a spacer lifted truck. Also, often times they will put larger tires on these mall crawlers. They usually do it to draw interest in tacomas from passerbys..
