    I've been looking to buy an xRunner the past week and I ran into 3 trucks that were fake xRunners. Advertise as xRunner but were preRunners, bummer. I recently found a 2009 xRunner online but it had a "TRD Sport" decal on the back right which the seller claims to be the xRunner sports package. I never seen this before. My question, is this normal? Has anyone seen an xRunner TRD sport package?

    As you can tell I'm fairly new to these awesome trucks and I just want to have a better understanding before I buy. Thanks everyone!

    No such package on a real X Runner. An easy way to tell would be to look for the X brace between the spare tire and rear bumper. Good luck in your search, these are really nice trucks.

    Another dead give away is the xrunner will have a 6 speed manual. But it's always best to check the VIN number. Xrunner's will have a specific VIN

    I did check the vin, which is a real XRunner. It had an xBrace, 5 lug, and 6 speed manual. Bought the truck and loving it! I know it's going to be pricey to fix up, so I'll start with the easy stuff. Going to clean up the interior a bit, update the suspension and basic engine mods... Anyone have a good website store I can look into? Floor mats, shocks replacement, air intake, etc... thanks everyone.

    If you want to lower it check out XII performance. Buck and Amy are awesome to deal with.

    Thanks bsp06xru & SgtbadA. Definitely want to lower my truck. What's a common wheel size for the xRunner after lowering? I'm just using it as a daily rn so no track. Thanks for all the info everyone.

    You can consider getting the stock wheels powder coated black or your color of choice

    Chrome wheels look good too;). Put your wants together and start a thread, I'm sure a few of us have parts available for you too.
