    I'm looking to get a new 2010 4x4 Double Cab. I've decided on not getting the Off-Road package and going with the sport. I plan on going with toytec's ultimate lift kit. Grabbing a new wheel and tire set as well. I also know that a big difference between the OR and Sport is the suspension with the sport is much better for on road. So, i'm wondering going with the Sport package for would have any real benefit over no package. Since I can purchase color keyed parts later on as well as changing the suspension.

    Thanks in advance!

    I had the same thought process when I opted for a '10 Double Cab 4x4 w/ TRD Sport package, asking myself why even get the TRD package if I was going to get a lift and wheel/tire set aftermarket? There are still some advantages with getting the TRD Sport package--though you'll have to weigh the cost.

    -You already mentioned the matching color parts.

    -The TRD Sport has better seats than the base model, and even the SR5.

    -The TRD Sport comes with the hood scoop (non-functional), if you like the way it looks.

    -Sport package has 115v deck plug in the bed.

    -You could go with the SR5 package in order to gain some of the convenience features, w/out forking the full amount for a TRD package.

    Compare the packages to help w/ the decision.

    Sport has the LSD vs SR5 having nothing. IMO LSD is way more practical, especially on a 4x4 for real world driving.

    TRD seats are 100x better than the SR5 seats, IMHO.
