The X-Runner was the “sport truck” version of the Tacoma, only available in RWD Access Cab configuration. It featured a close-ratio 6-speed Aisin transmission and a 3.15 limited slip. Toyota added structural bracing for increased stiffness (called the “X brace”). This truck had large anti-roll bars and was lowered with stiff springs and Bilstein shocks on 18in wheels wearing 45 series Bridgestone Potenza’s!
X-Runners are factory equipped with a Stoptech big brake kit as well as a double-wishbone suspension and a lightweight composite bed
Toyota boldly claimed the Nissan 350Z was used as the performance benchmark for the X-Runner. Road test numbers prove they weren’t kidding: A 2004 350Z put down .88g in the skidpad (Car and Driver), while the X-Runner put down over .90 g (Motor Trend)
An optional TRD supercharger was available as a dealer-installed option. It boosted output to 304 horsepower while maintaining the factory warranty. The cost was around $4k for the supercharger, plus installation

The following year (2007) received bigger front seats, updated radio unit, and updated dashboard trim (brighter/two tone). Gauge panel receives chrome surround. The ABS system is updated, and the Stability Control (VSC) can now be disengaged if equipped
