What is the difference between a tow truck and a wrecker?

They can be the same thing.  However, a wrecker is usually a truck that uses a wheel lift or some type of crane to tow a vehicle.

A tow truck may also have a wheel lift or crane, but they may also be a roll back or flat bed truck.

Most people will use the names  interchangeably, however, if you want to get technical, a wrecker refers to a specific type of tow truck.
