    Just what was fully loaded from base model so far
    Hell, Im Jeff and I recently back In August purchased a 2010 Super White TRD sport, Prerunner, SR5. All I got to say about this truck outstanding. I came down from a full size Dodge Ram that while it was a great truck, started to fail.
    I bought the truck with 26000 miles on it an in 7 months I have prolly put 3800 miles. I only drive to the hospital for appointments or the store. I was blown away however when I put my foot down on the execlerator and that truck just launches. The power and torque in the truck is amazing. Sometimes I think even though it says sport on the side I think it can handle the curves on the freeways better lol. ut it is deffinetly a blast to own.

    I have a few questions however. most importantly, I never received a usuers manual with the truck and so I have no idea how to connect my phone to the radio or steering wheels to have hands free driving. I will be searching for this answer but if anyone has something that would help me here would be great.

    I look forward to meeting you good people in the forums and maybe out in town.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    welcome... your sport version has a sports suspension which means its made to handle those freeway curves better than a regular SR5 or an OR

    Thanks all for the welcome, yeah beezy that was my logical thinking as well, but I did the old four tire slide taking some of the offramps here in San Diego a bit more like I would in my Mustang vs my old Ram.
