    2010 TRD sport
    Hello everyone! Just picked up my third tacoma and i couldn't be more excited. Finally I was able to go with the TRD 4x4 total package. I never wanted to upgrade my old prerunner's since they were all one wheel peel. Now Im looking to make a few upgrades and was looking for some advice.

    Living in Florida this Taco will be mostly used in sand dunes and at the beach but I'm looking to be able to take it through some mud if need be. I am a fan of that wide squatty look that isn't lifted too high but just looks mean.

    I also have extended warranty, maybe a bad idea since i want to put some aftermarket stuff on her??? I would like to hear some feed back on the warranty and how to no void it.

    Help me out by posting some ideas/pics/whatever on the thread. thanks to everyone who helps me figure out how to make this a bad machine.

    As Hemi is eager to point out, the OFF ROAD TRD is far more of a truck than the SPORT TRD... if off road traction is what you seek! Just curious as to why you posted a big photo of a SPORT truck in your opening post, if that is your previous truck?

    Bold words there.... "Off road" doesn't mean squat if you don't know what your doing behind the wheel.

    Wasn't meant to be a personal attack. I'm just saying I have seen first hand what an inexperienced driver in an "off road" can do versus an experienced driver in a sport. And I would agree, "learn by doing", but also self knowledge of a persons off road experience will help to not get in a bad situation.

    Why does the pic have a TRD Sport in it then... and by pic I mean the one in the first post. If it was your first truck... it was a 4x4... why trade. Could have thrown an ARB air locker on cheaper.

    If you get lifted, it will not void your warranty. If there is something wrong with your aftermarket shock, block, AAL - it your responsible. Warranty will cover stock, not aftermarket. You mention that you have Offroad package, does it come with JBL/blu tooth and tow package? I have all of that. I also lifted my truck, 3" in front and 2" in rear. Stock tires and aftermarket rims.

    Appears to be a sport? Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I thought you were getting an OR?

    Don't forget to use your Locker and ATRAC! I would also air down to 15 psi in soft sand like that.....

    Look this might sound like I'm a kook or something but what is the difference between the off-road and sport? I have 4x4 i figure that makes it more off-road than my last TRD which was just one wheel.

    He doesn't have 'em :\


    The OffRoad has three primary items which separate it from the sport in terms of offroad prowess:

    - ATRAC. This beefed version of TRAC (found in pretty much every other 4x4 2nd Gen) is probably the truck's most powerful weapon when the going gets serious.

    - Locking Rear Differential. See ATRAC. Is pretty much the last option before going to the winch or a recovery strap.

    - Hydraulic Brake Booster. This sucker packs more punch than the standard vacuum powered brake booster. It's necessary for the OR taco's brakes to be able to make ATRAC effective in 4Lo. Early opinions from guys who wheel more than me are that it may allow systems like TRAC/ATRAC/Auto-LSD operate longer before brake heat becomes a concern.


    With a 4x4 sport, you still have 4WD and TRAC, which makes your 4WD more capable than most others on the market anyway. Nothing to be sad about.

    Oh my...he thinks because it is 4WD, it is an 'Off Road'! Noooooo noooooo not so my friend...

    A world of difference betwen a TRD Sport 4WD and a TRD Off Road 4WD, as jandrews has said.

    If you had the OFF ROAD TRD, I bet you wouldn't be stuck and needed to get pulled out. By-the-way... for next time... LET THE AIR OUT OF THE TIRES (15 psi) and drive yourself out!!!

    And use 4H, the excellent TRAC system will help you as well. No throttle intervention, just like limited slip diffs.

    Here is a post that explains the suspension difference, at least in the early models.

    GTCOMA:
    TRD Sport Has:
    Sport Tuned Bilstein Shocks

    TRD Offroad has:
    Off Road Tuned Bilstein Shocks ( heavier Dampening Rate)
    Progressive Rate front Coil Springs
    Off Road Cambered Rearspings to compensate for wheel travel in offroad situations
    Larger stabilizer Bar

    So the bottom line is the TRD Sport Has a smoother onroad ride while the TRD Off Road is rougher on road, but more equiped for rough terrain.
