    The TRD is an off road package for the Tacoma.


    Yes, it's more than just some suspension changes.

    The TRD package will add things like Bilstein Shocks, a locking rear differential, 16-in. alloy wheels with BFGoodrich off road tires, downhill and hill start assist control, skid plates, fog lamps, TRD graphics, and many, many more things to list...

    TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development, and it is an off-road package for your Tacoma. The options include Billstein shocks, locking rear differential, Hill Start Assist Control, Downhill Assist least these are some TRD options on 2010 Tacomas, what year is your Tacoma?

    The TRD option consists (I think) of: special wheels/tires, higher ride height, stronger springs, heavy duty shocks, and probably better cooling and differential gears suited for off road running. These are not good trucks for getting maximum fuel mileage, but they will last a LONG time with a little care and maintenance.
