    Used to have the taco OR 2017 and changed it to PRO 2017. Including from the dealer and have read here in a few posts that PRO is higher by 1" from the factory is a myth. The PRO is not lifted at all, has the same height as the OR. At work is a colleague with a blue OR and put the trucks side by side to compare. Same both. Next time you hear that the PRO comes lifted tell them to go pound sand.
    P.S. the OR has a better suspension for city driving compared to PRO.

    Did you measure it with a tape measure? Just taking a picture and using visuals is very subjective.

    Very scientific. You must be a long lost twin of bradwhitenikki.

    Even though the Pro as 1" bigger tires? I know it's not a lift, but it can't be equal.

    I'm starting to wonder if the 1" comparison is to the base model, not the Off Road. Also, as said already, measurements would seal the deal.

    I thought Pros were 17s? I don't have one, but I swore it was.

    The Pro and the Off Road both ship with 265/70/16.

    Even if it was, it would be 265/65/17 and that's still the same overall rolling diameter as 265/70/16.

    What about the track width? I believe Mike Sweers said the TRD Pro is wider by 1-2"

    Maybe an inch from wheel offset.

    1/2" per side.


    Maybe.

    Maybe.

    1" wider track. And check out the overall height. States Pro is 71.6" which is 1" taller than the Sport and Off Road.
