    I have had my tacoma for a year now and have thought it was 4Wd since I've had it. It is a 2008 double cab TRD package. I thought that since it didn't say prerunner that it was 4WD. I have the rear differential but again not sure about the 4WD. Just need a little help and advice. Thanks!

    4wd is sort of a big item cost-wise when you purchase a vehicle. How did you go through the entire buying process and not know for sure if it was indeed 4wd? :confused:

    Isn't this like asking your wife, if you should use the Men's Or Women's restroom?
