I agree

Pretty much what everybody else has said - if you like the look of the sport, get the sport. I did, and every time I walk out of my house in the morning and look at it, i'm glad I did. A 4wd sport will get you just about anywhere you need to go, and if you're worried about the locker, that's something you can add on your own for another ~1,000 bucks.

The locker saved my ass twice the other day. I don't know why people would buy a sport for offroadong tbh especially if they just lift it anyways you just paid 3 grand for a 400 dollar bumper and grill surround. I guess the fake scoop was too much too resist.

Thr off road is worth it man. I mean honestly if you need a locker you don't have to regret it and go buy an ARB one you just have one from the factory that will be helpful more than you think.

I would have gotten a 6 foot bed but I don't need the extra foot since I use a full size truck for hauling

Like I said , depends on end use I guess

If the TRD offroad came in a 6 foot I would have it. I wouldnt have a bumper anymore because it would have been torn off climbing some hills. My old tacoma had a 6 foot and I miss it sometimes but the bed extender helps me fit stuff most of the time in the 5'.

You can get a TRD Offroad with a 6' bed

like everyone else said its up to you! i have the sport in the prerunner and ive been in some situations where i wish i had the locker!! it would come in handy but the sport also looks better though! now like they said you can get a locker put in but thats an easy $1000 and they have a tendicy to fail.... as much as i would say go sport i would probably lean for the offroad for what you said you will be doing!! but im hooked on the sport so my next is a sport 4wd!!
hope this helps!

A color matched Sport grill is $180 from Camelback Toyota - free shipping too. Plus you can sell the chrome grill for $125 on eBay, like I did. And it takes 30 minutes to install, while drunk. The color matched rear bumper is like $400 - and again, you can recoup much of your costs by selling the chrome one on eBay.

Retrofitting an ARB locker would cost $1,025 for the locker, plus $275 for the compressor, plus probably $500-700 for proper installation by a gear shop.

Additionally, the OR has some skid plates and tow hooks, which while not as good as aftermarket units, are better than what the Sport comes with, which is nothing.

Since you're ditching the stock suspension either way, that doesn't really matter. Same with the wheels and tires.

... and then get an Old Man Emu lift.
Thread jack: Do you have a link to these grills for $180? Searched their website and couldn't find anything, and thats the cheapest I've heard so far.

Buy what you think looks better. I think chrome looks better and like the better capability off road. The OR also has better suspension.
