I just ordered the Baja edition and will be picking her up on leave from Afghanistan. Sure wish I could bring her back with me! I'm looking forward to the fanciness over my current stock, no frills, bottom of the barrel pre-runner. I am curious about the TRD exhaust if anyone is still reading. I'm a HUGE Magnaflow fan, but with the TRD designed muffler, is it worth changing it out? I want to put some headers and a new cat on as well.

Hey, it isn't as bad as Ford, whose "special edition" Raptor is distinguished only by badging (i.e. it's only "special" because Ford labeled it as such).
The TX "Baja" comes with the trd catback, blistein 66mm shocks and red coilover eibach springs in the front and 50mm blistein w/ remote res in the back, LT265/70R16 BF Goodrich AT TKO tires, and the graphics and badge. That's according to my order breakdown. I think the "pro" version of it comes with the Predator Tube Steps or something like that.

sr5 prerunner :[ but i dont do much offroading anyways.

when buying my truck i had the choice of an 08 4x4 trd 6MT sport with 68k or a 2010 sr5 prerunner auto with 34k on the clock, both the same price. super hard decision, but im glad i went with the auto, i didnt like the way the 6MT felt. one of these days, i may install an an air locker if i decide to get more serious about offroading.

It seems like the gap between TRD and SR5 narrowed a bit in the 2012 and 2013 models. Small stuff, but things that in the past would have made me upgrade to the TRD for them. Alloy wheels, touch screen, backup cam...etc.

1. Wanted standard TRAC as I'm in MN and spend most my time in 4x4 in snow. Didn't need A-TRAC for low range crawling, but still wanted an extra traction aid for deep snow that works in both 4LO and 4HI
2. Backup cam comes on the SR5
3. Touchscreen radio is available in SR5
4. Wanted a trailering package, and there is no difference between models
5. SR5 Spring rate for payload. I liked how the Sport drove with the same springs, but didn't really want bigger wheels and the scoop.
6. SR5 seats weren't quite as good as the TRD's, but a vast improvement over previous years. Difference was negligible.
7. Fogs came standard on my SR5
8. Knew I would upgrade either of the standard sets of tires after hearing the poor reviews.
9. I can add lockers later, and DAC and HAC are far beyond my needs.
10. Could get the 16" alloys in SR5 without paying the premium for the O/R.

The Bilsteins and the 110v plugin were the two things I would have liked that come on the TRD's, but an inverter and 5100's didn't add up to the TRD for me!

I definitely think the TRD is worth it if you need A-TRAC, HAC, DAC, Lockers, etc. Lots of good gear on these trucks if you're a hardcore wheeler.
^^I agree with this breakdown. HAC and DAC are for automatics only I believe, so I wouldn't be paying for that since I wanted the manual trans.

I already had a Craftsman 450 watt converter so I didn't need the TRD Off Road one. Would be nice to have the A-TRAC, though, real nice. The TRD Off Road package is a nice setup, the Baja edition setup even nicer. A rear locker would be nice, but tire chains work the same and are a needed item whether you have a locker or not.

I figured $27k for my SR5 was a good low starting point and I'll add on what I need. Even with the Off Road package the skid plates aren't worth much and have to be upgraded. The suspension on the Off Road doesn't differ much from the SR5 and should be upgraded.

You where smart to go with SR5 model. Baja edition is a total waste of money. Plus if you add lockers would have way better setup than any of those models.

Bought an SR5 knowing that everything functional I woulda paid for in the TRD package was coming off the truck anyway during my build. Money better spent in the aftermarket.

I just signed on a '13 AC V6 TRD offroad package. I am not the kind that does any kind of modifications on my vehicles, but I wanted the big tires and nice rims, the nicer shocks and I think I will be using that inverter for charging my deep cell battery when I'm camping.

But I'm going to take off that sticker! It's tacky!!
