    Grieby54,

    Irregardless of what model or options you choose, I suggest going to the bank first and laying some ground work with them. They can give you a lot of information. I truly recommend financing through a local bank and establishing a relationship with them. Tell the bank what you would like to pay for the truck and allready be approved when you decide on your truck.

    When talking with the dealer, you only want the out the door price. You want EVERYTHING figured into that price, tax, title, destination and anything else.

    Don't ever go into a stealership and tell them that you're about tender a huge down payment ($25K). Rather make them think that you need to finance most if not all of it. By doing so you can get a much better price on the vehicle since they'll think they're going to make a killing on the financing kick-back. After you've settled on the best financed price, then tell them you want put down $25K and make them stick to the 'financed' price. Since you're putting down almost 85%, you should easily be able to get 0% on the remaining $5K financed.

    Don't forget the Golden Rule, "the man with the gold rules"!

    GOOD LUCK!

    WRT children and seat coverings, leather isn't much of an advantage over cloth, IMO. I'd recommend buying seat covers. They're easy to clean, to the point you can completely remove them if something really nasty happens. Covers will also cost far less than leather, and from what I've seen, car seats can chew up leather over time.

    There are a few brands of seat covers available, and they're already discussed in other threads. Another advantage with using covers is you don't need to concern yourself with OEM options while shopping.

    That earned a chuckle. :D

    "For looks only" applies to the owner's behavior. At least in their unmolested, stock form, I agree that all of these trucks are capable work vehicles, from a stripper 4cyl/MT to a Limited.

    You said you want a short bed, so the lack of the OR+Long Bed option doesn't affect you.

    I believe there's still a difference in the OR seats and other trim levels, so take some time to see which feels better.

    The OR brakes are probably the best, since the hydraulic booster powers the upgraded A-TRAC system. In stock form, the OR brakes are very good for a truck, IMO. If it matters, A-TRAC is supposed to be a better form of electronic traction control than that offered with non-OR trucks. If you plan to add and aftermarket rear locker, and especially if you plan to add front & rear lockers, A-TRAC may not be very important to you. Here's a huge mess of a thread from the Great A-TRAC Wars. Enjoy!

    The main question you seem to be facing is whether it's better to buy turnkey, Toyota solutions (Sound/NAV and Off-Road packages) or go aftermarket. If you already plan to change out parts immediately, I think it's better to buy the trim level with the cheapest parts you plan to cast off. To that end, do you plan to stay stock or change tires, wheels, and suspension? Do you want a rear locker? If so, would you rather have a Toyota e-locker or install an aftermarket one? Will you add sliders & skid plates (the OEM "skids" are worthless)?

    I went with a 2012 OR/5AT/standard audio because I wanted something ready for light trails off the lot, I needed an AT so non-shifting folks could drive it on long trips, and I think built-in NAV systems are a huge waste of money when high quality, standalone products with free upgrades are so cheap. I added sliders/skids and called it good. I'll slowly continue to upgrade components, but I'm pretty happy with it as is.

    i have a 13 OR and no JBL, but i have the touch scree, usb, aux port, back up camera and blue tooth. i wanted the nav and satellite radio... and when i bought it, i thought it came stock, i thought the entune was standard on all new 2012-2013's. then when my truck came (i had to order it) it did not have it. im not a big sound system/radio guy, but my previous car 2008 acura TL Type S 6 M/T kind of spoiled me.

    my iphone with pandora plugs into the usb port gives me any radio station i want, and the phone has turn by turn instruction with the navigation that comes over the radio. not having a JBL sound system i can live with. that extra 2 grand.. i spent on a 3" lift and new upper control arms to make my already very capable off roader, to a more handsome even more capable off roader

    what im getting at is... its your money spend, how you want. another option, save that money for a child seat and diapers

    EDIT: the steering wheel controls controls the iPhone/ipod/pandora flawlessly

    OR for sure. I would never buy a sport reasoning : occasional Off roading, OR package for lovker, serious off roaring Sr5 and lots of mods. Plus tires for 16's are cheaper than 18's when its time to replace.

    So I think I'm going to have to custom order my truck. Should it go something like this?
    Call Internet sales manager, tell him I want a '13 OR with JBL and leather for $33k. See what price he has. Then drive to the dealership, ask for the same sales manager and say "I'd like to order and finance this truck today, I'm going to 3 other dealerships to compare your price, is the absolute best price you can do?" Then drive to the other dealerships and see if they can beat the price - ask about finance rates, etc... Then tell them I'd like to put $X down and that I want the College Grad rebate as well. When they order it, do I sign the finance papers at that time and put the money down, or do I just put down a deposite?

    1.69% financing rate I got for 60 months with 0 down. Then 1 month later, I paid it off.

    Out the door with tax and tags it was 34 and some change
