    I'll take that offer. Let me know next time you're passing through Austin TX area and we'll make the swap.

    I just picked one up last week and went with the TRD Sport. I figure I know I'm not going off road and even in the bizarre scenario where I might... Sport seems capable. I did get the factory tonneau but honestly don't care for it. My reasoning is simple and probably a minor detail but I dont like that I can't take it off and put it in the bed of the truck and close the tailgate. It's too long which is of course my fault as I went with the short box. Plus it's heavy enough to make me really consider is it worth removal/install. BUT... that's just me.

    Very happy with the truck overall. I didn't care for the TRD sport decal and tried out the plasti-dip over the chorme badges. I probably wont do much else but going for a more aggressive tire. Suggestions? Tacoma.jpg

    Not anytime soon, but I generally drive to LA a couple times a year. If you want to escape the heat, let me know. Haha

    If the two trucks are close to the same price it seems obvious to me to choose the Off Road. More features/capability for the same brainer. Even if you never plan to go off road, the old adage "I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it".... holds true here.

    Just don't get it in Quicksand. My 2016 is, and there are too many of them out there as it is :D

    Oh, and if the tonneau on the Sport is the OEM that's no big perk, they aren't the greatest. If you need a cover I suggest the Undercover hard tonneau.

    Good luck and no matter which you get, you will love it!
