I started a new thread as to not thread-jack the OP's thread titled TRD Pro.
I am new here and to Tacomas, add to that I don't know much or anything for that matter about suspension systems.
I am buying a TRD pro Access at 37,290.
If I were to buy a base model 4x4 AC the lowest level trim I can get is a TRD Sport Extra Value making the lowest base model total: $32,420. A difference of $4870 between the AC Base and the TRD Pro AC.
What does the TRD Pro get you over the base? From my understanding it give you a Skid plate, Nav, 2.5 inch lift and better tires, better shocks and damm cool color over a TRD Off Road. (Thanks VIJAY)
I have no clue what UCA means but the Icon suspension systems range from $1,600 to $5,200. The best system that does not mention UCA is $2k (I exclude UCA as people have mentioned the TRD Pro does not have it, or it's weak. Trying to keep apples to apples) I.E. I am presuming that the $2k level of Icon is somewhat = to the TRD Pro Suspension.
Now we are down to a $2800 difference between the base model access cab and the TRD Pro. TRD Pro includes NAV. I want that. I do NOT want to use my phone or have a Nuvi on my Dash. The value of NAV? Not sure but we'll say $500 Now we have a $2300 Delta.
The TRD Pro has better tires and wheels. I like the wheels. Are they what I would buy if I customized? Not sure but I think I would put a conservative value of a $400 value over and above the base access cab wheels and tires.
Now we're down to $1900 difference. So for an extra $1900 Consider
everything is us under warranty
damn cool color
other little bits and color matched
It's not that far off the mark. For me it would take a year to learn enough about suspension that I would know the difference between the Icon offerings and the TRD Stock with lift.
The reason I say all this is, although, I see lots of people hating on the TRD Pros and saying they would buy base and build yourself, I don't see the specifics with numbers to back it up. So how far off are my assumptions?
