    Whats Up Everybody?

    Looking to buy my first tacoma after selling my '05 F-150. Gotta have a truck and looking forward to getting into a tacoma. Anywho, I am looking at two trucks right now. Both '08 both round 120k's, both about $19,000. One has TRD Sport Leather package other has SR5. I havent done any hardcore 4wheeling but do haul stuff (seadoo's) and do a ton of renovations (hence needing a truck). Just curious as to experinced owners of tacomas which option is better and or the better deal. Ive done some research into the differences and from what i can see TRD has better off road capability but the SR5 better tow. Any clarification and advice would be great.

    Cheers

    Sorry a little off topic....I think if you look good, you could find a newer Taco with less miles for that price.

    TRD is the sr5 package plus some, so for the same price I would go with the TRD sport. The price does seem a bit high, I paid $19000 for my 07 TRD Off Road with 51000 miles last summer. Good luck with the buy and welcome to TW! You will love your truck and be prepared to blow lots of cash on the truck due to this site:D

    120K's meaning 75 thousand miles on the truck

    Thanks for the reply and info. Posted kilometers on truck not miles. Forgot that most users on this site prolly be located in the states. Tacomas hard to come by here.
