    is there no tire pressure sensor?
    if my seat belt is off or the passengers, the car doesnt beep, is that normal?
    wheres the overdrive? my uncles 01 had it but mine doesnt...
    i bought mine use and ive compared it to a neighbors sport tacoma...ive noticed u can see the coils in the front more on mine then his like a bigger space between the wheel and the body...do i have a lift?

    It was an option for 05
    Yes. It can be set to beep if you want it too.

    Over drive would be "D"
    Its possible that his may sit a little lower as TRD springs tend to sag faster than the non TRD springs. OR, you can compare the shocks/springs of the two and see if yours are different with any sighns of a lift. :)

    have you compared tire sizes? its possible that your tires are smaller and therefore have more space between the top of the tire and the fender

    A better pic would be nice, but that is definitely a spacer lift.

    Im gonna go sofar as to say a 2.5". Looks like there is a little bulge in the spacer, signifying a POLY spacer. Also see (i think) a top plate spacer, which me thinks is a Pro Comp lift :spy: thereby dictating it as a Pro Comp 2.5". :)

    a spacer is a piece of metal or plastic that sits between the coil bucket and the coil to lift the front end of your truck

    whats the rear suspension look like? how many leaves?

    It looks good but would look better with tubular side step and tonneau cover.
