    Hi guys,
    Been looking at getting my first Tacoma over the last 2 weeks or so and am thinking of getting a 2wd one.

    I see many posts regarding the lift options and such and see the 6 lugs seem to be preferred, depending on the use of the truck.

    Anyone know what years/models have which suspension setup?

    2wd means either a 6 Lug pre runner, which has the 4x4 suspension without the 4wd or you can get the 5 Lugger base model like I have. The 5 Lugger has totally different suspension and rides lower.

    i see the 5 lugger more as a commuter truck/commercial truck. The 6 luggers is a lot beefier and can handle more off road situations; as well as TONS of aftermarket support unlike the 5 lug.


    If you are thinking of going full Long Travel, it really doesnt matter then.

    4x4's and Pre-Runners (2wd with 4x4 suspension) have the 6 lugs

    2wd base models have 5 lugs.

    unless you plan on lowering the truck, get a 6 lug. You won't regret it.
