    So I bought a Taco 2007 Sport last year in Phoenix, AZ. What I understood at the time was that the 'Off Road' was a 4WD and the 'Sport' is a 2WD. Then I met up with a friend in Denver CO who has a 4WD 'Sport', and I have seen a few others on here who have a 4WD 'Sport'.

    So what gives? Does the naming vary from region to region/state to state?

    the standard tires are different, too. also, you can't get a TRD double-cab long bed in the off-road, only in the sport.
