Newbie about to buy 1st Taco

Just found the board and excited about buying Taco in the near future.

I'm looking at 1st gen Tacos (2001+) and trying to decide between buying a base SR5 or a one with a TRD off road package. I'm going to be driving it in rural snow country and plan to add an ARB Bull Bar.

Is it cheaper to get a TRD and add a few more things or start from a base and build up? Any advice is welcome.

TRD offroad has a selectable factory locker. Really about the only benefit IMO.

Especially since you need to change the suspension to carry an ARB.
