    I am looking to purchase a new(used) Tacoma and need some help figuring out a few things as far as options go. I have decided on the Access Cab with a 4 cyl 2.7 L, 5-speed manual trans., and would like the TRD off-road package. I know they don't offer TRD off-road as an option for the 2012 Access Cab but am trying to figure out what years they did. Please help me figure this out!:)

    Actually I'm pretty sure the TRD package was available on 1st Gen four cylinders, albeit very rare and hard to find. Unfortunately never offered on second gens w/ the 2TR. :(

    You cant get a TRD.
    You can get an SR5, which is almost the same.

    What TRD has over SR5 are the following:
    rear diff locker,
    atrac (2009+ 4wd, note that all 2009+ have regular trac)
    backup camera
    slightly different seats (not better or worse, just different)
    slightly wider tires (factory tires *all* suck)
    built in dcac inverter (a $20 value at walmart).

    For the difference in what you will have to pay, you can pick up an aftermarket air locker. Front and rear. This would actually be superior to a factory trd.

    Fixed. SR5 has backup camera in all versions 09+. Given the v6 and $4000 TRD option on-top you can do better with adding everything after the fact. I did everything but the locker add on and the inverter. I got seat covers that are more comfortable.

    That is incorrect. Possibly 2012+, but definitely not all. How do i know? Very simple: no backup camera on my 2011 SR5.

    Simply your country of origin and region. You are located in a different country, so your standard equipment will vary from the USA. Like the 4 leaf packs coming standard for canada and mine having the 3.

    If OP is in US they will have the camera according to toyota.

    Americans can't parallel park/hook up trailers without help I guess?

    Yup that's why cars have introduced Parking Assist.....so the car can parallel park itself

    I have a 2002 Prerunner Xtra Cab TRD Off-Road with the 2.7L engine. The V6 version of the truck had the locking rear diff but the 4cyl does not.

    I'll be selling it now that I picked up a 2012, but there are some trucks out there.
