    I may be wrong, so correct me if so, but if you have a 4 leaf pack (including the flat leaf) it's a tow package.

    A 3 leaf pack indicates it's not a tow package.


    ... True?

    No, leaf packs are all 3 unless you have the Toyota tsb leafs (4 leaf pack).

    Not true

    2012-13 Sport and SR5 trucks come with the 4 leaf pack as have all Canadian trucks since 2007

    ^^^This^^^^ Just give the parts counter guy your VIN number he can print off a vehicle inquiry report. I did and it told me everything my truck was built with, including if it was fleet or non fleet.

    +1, easy for dealer to do. The one I deal with runs specs and puts it on a laminated printout. Looks nice but I like to keep the window sticker and these are rather large and hard to fold. If buying from individual hopefully they have it or try calling Toyota.

    When I was looking and pricing out a certain model almost every dealer told me if you get a TRD package 99% of the time its going to have the towing package.

    I have seen that correlation myself. I expect that we was referring to 6 cylinder models.

    Very informative posts! I'm looking at picking up my first Taco and have found one I like. It has a trailer hitch and I wonder if it has the factory option or dealer installed. I ran the vin using an on-line vin decoder and it didn't mention a tow package, but I wonder if the decoder gave me all the data. The dealer hasn't advertised the towing aspect either. When I went to look at the truck I didn't know all the things to look for, but I did know a few. I took pics and compiled them below. Appears to me that it's a factory package from what I can see, but again the VIN search made no mention. What do you guys think?

    In CA, I have not seen a TRD without the towing package but I know they don't always come with it.
