Ordered 2013 SR5-what to steal off my TRD OR B4 trade in?

Like the title says, have a 2013 SR5 coming in the next two months or so. I won't bother trying to remove the elocker unit, I'll just go ARB on this truck, but, what else should I snag before I trade in the TRD OR? It is an 08. I was thinking about the inverter and switch, that should be plug and play right? Anything else anyone can think of?

Any aftermarket stuff is fair game, as long as there's no impact on what's left. Sliders or an aftermarket intake (re-install the OEM intake), for example. I wouldn't mess with any of the OEM equipment like the inverter, though. A 400W inverter is pretty cheap, and if you trash OEM options, it'll probably hurt your resale/trade-in value.

I wouldn't mess with the seats, either.

The new SR5 seats are very good, anyways.

I tested out a few used Tacomas, and there was definitely a difference between the seats in the older SR5's and TRD's (05-11).

I tried out the SR5 and TRD seats in the 12-13's though, and aside from a SLIGHT difference in the fabrics, and some minor details in the way the foam is cut, I couldn't tell.

New truck will be spruce mica with sand interior, so my grey seats won't swap. Where is the inverter in the truck, under the seat? Anyone done this swap before? I assume the SR5 will have all the wiring, I'll just need the switch, the inveter, and the plug right?

I don't know about doing the swap but the inverter is under the console storage. Just pop off the shifter surround & there's 2 Phillips screws then pull the carpet out of the bottom of the storage & there's 2 10 mm bolts the just pull straight up.

Oh And spruce mica is a good choice

Thanks. That should help me figure it out. I guess if the wiring isn't there on the new SR5, I could always sell it to someone on here.
As for the color, I think it is awesome. I can't wait for it to show up. Had to order it because the combo with sand (tan) is rare. My TRD OR now is dark blue, which I think is the next best color. Couldn't stand the six speed anymore or the 5 foot bed for camping. So have to make an SR5 into a off road machine on my own.

Thinking about accessories like bottle jack and stuff...any reason to have an extra one around? Also was thinking two extra tie down things for the bed rails would be nice. Any other ideas?

um, what about the next guy to own the truck?

Do you not think they might NEED the jack? What are you gonna do with the big hole left in the bed from the missing inverter?

Why screw the next guy over on things that should come with the vehicle?

Think of others, not just yourself!

Good luck explaining why its stripped when you sell/trade...

Would you buy something in the condition you are proposing to leave this truck in? Speaks to the society we live in today....its all me me me, f you.

Aftetmarket items are one thing, but stripping oem parts is just wrong...kinda like putting TRD stickers on an Sr5 and than selling it as a TRD at a premium.

+1!!!

OP, Why strip an OR of OEM gear? If you didn't add it, don't pull it. Pull that inverter and I'll put $$$ down that the dealer outright refuses your trade in. If not, they will cut thousands of dollars off its value because it doesn't have the standard model's equipment and you did a hackjob stripping it. Is that worth a $150 inverter???

Please post back after your trade in experience. I'd like to hear how it goes.

I had never heard of someone stripping a perfectly good truck to trade in without the normal OEM components until now. Not saying it is wrong, but is it worth the trouble of having extra OEM crap sitting around to rot? I'd imagine the dealership would really nag you about that when you go to trade it in, as in lowball you on every little thing you pulled off.

To me unless whatever dealer you take it in to is willing to replace all the stuff you stripped out, they probably wouldn't accept the trade. Or give you a crap offer which it would deserve. TO them it probably isn't worth the trouble when some customer comes in and says, well where the hell is all the TRD features? and the dealer has to say "well the PO tore everything out".

So you think you can pull the diff apart/ remove the suspension components then just trade it in for full value? I don't follow.

I think when they see it roll in on a flat bed they will realize what has been done.

I pointed all of that out earlier, but apparently was ignored. Let him figure it out the hard way, when a dealer screws him extra hard on trade-in value, or people pass it over because it's been dicked up. I don't understand the motivation, but it's his truck. Pain is a great teacher.

X2 on not giving the dealer reasons to devalue the trade-in appraisal.

Aftermarket inverter is cheap.
OEM bottle jack is crap.
Floormat hooks are in different places.
Bed cleats - maybe
Fuel tank straps - maybe

Damn, pre-2009 Off Road package was a poorer value. No ATRAC, no flux capacitor subwoofer.

Why are you trading in the 08 on a 13? Just curious, I just got my 08 the way I like it after 4 1/2 years.

Wow. you guys jump to a lot of conclusions. Meh. Doesn't bother me. I get what I want in life by thinking ahead and going for it when I should and I've gotten far that way. PS I have done this on my last three trades for my BMWs and sold it all for a profit. Just a heads up, this is what EVERY used car dealer in the country does when they buy cars at auction. If you think that buying a car at a dealer means you must deliver them the same car they sold to you, maybe your efforts are spent looking for savings in other areas. This is one of many areas I choose to look for savings. The impact to my trade in value is negligible. It is already negotiated and done. They try to lower my trade, I make them lower the sales price. But none of that is necessary, trust me this is how I do it all the time. It isn't as big a deal as you think. They'd rather make the sale and put in a couple parts then let it all fall apart over what are a couple hundred dollars to them. As for why I'm trading in the 08, I hate the six speed, and I want a six foot bed to lie down in when camping. Also that color combo speaks to me...

Anyway, I've decided to take the following items off my truck before trade in:
1. Inverter system
2. Hitch cover plug
3. Rear floor mat thing from walmart that covers all back floor area
4. A few clips and screws under the hood that are doubled up but will come in handy if I need them sometime on the new truck for some reason.
5. Two of the tie down cleats
6. My bike holder for the bed rail system
7. Lighting kit for the ARB bumper if it will swap to the new style, still researching
8. LED interior lights

Okay going back to lurking mode now, too much typing for me

PS I never said anything about taking any suspension or diff parts out. I'm doing a lift on the new truck, and I'm pretty sure the first post said I was doing arb instead of an e locker. This might be the least favorite thread I ever started lol.

Hopefully the next potential owner spots all the missing stuff before they buy it! I know I wouldn't be happy about missing hood components or inverters.......
