Hello I will help,

Yes they are the same. The L (Limited) is a trim package such as leather, premium sound cetc but the running gear is the same.\

Please let me know if you have further questions

Thank you

Well no it's not it's a all wheel drive we are trying to put it on
Expert:  George H. replied 8 months ago.

They both need to be 2WD or AWD. The Limited comes in both versions the same as the plain RAV4, it has no bearing on the transmission

is there gonna be any problems with other parts or everything is gonna connect right
Expert:  George H. replied 8 months ago.

If they are both AWD then it will bolt right up. The L just designates the trim package

Let me know if you have further questions, if nothing further please complete the rating

Thank you
