In answer to your initial question, Patrol and GearUp were both 2WD. GearUp just had more...gear. Tourist was the 1WD version in 2012.

GearUp just had more...gear.
In addition to the, uh, 'additional' gear (toolbox tank, spotlight, shovel, etc.), other differences include several chrome accoutrements (handlebar, shock springs, etc.), unpainted aluminum rims, standard gloss paint finishes, and stepped bench seat on the Patrol.
