    A bit of unsolicited advice! :oops:
    I'd suggest to jump on any PRO (or any Taco for that matter...) that fits what you want.
    My initial LR order from a very reputable dealer (A high volume dealer) and trusty salesman from back in Oct '20 has not been met by Toyota. - I do not hold it against them, it is how it goes...

    BUT I was lucky to run into my Manual LR already allocated to a dealer up in Oregon. I also put a deposit on that over the phone minutes after I became aware of it; and 20 days later, I had it in my grubby hands.

    With all the delays, and complications going on - on top of the already spoken-for allocations now pushing to the end of model year's production, I think that many LR PROs will just not be there... I am sure the last ones are more likely to be found with a large, and largely un-negotiable additional dealer mark-up, as we have seen. People are paying it...

    Grab it if you can snag it, I say!

    When my manual LR popped up on my dealer's website after 6 months wait (autolinked based on GST Distribution) one popped up at Haas as well.

    Out of curiosity I called Haas and it was an ordered car. At that time they had another LR manual coming in that was not spoken for which I am sure is by now.

    Haas also had tons of automatic Pros, a lot more than my dealer in the 6 months that transpired while I waited for mine.

    Wife and I have been talking about putting a deposit for another manual Pro just because they are so rare and why not have another one.

    There's a lot of value in a pro. Considering how rare the manuals are and you throw a specialty color on, I'm banking on this thing holding its value completely.

    Yeah, I get really tired of the "Its 7,000 more, you could build a better truck for half that!!" argument.

    Uhh, no it's not. If you take an OR with the tech package, it's only about $2,500 more, but for that extra cash you get the Fox Shocks $1,000+, the $500 grill, the $750 cat-back, $500 bash plate, $1,000 wheels, $650 LED fog lights... And all these things come with a warranty and resale value.

    When I was comparing apples to apples, had I bought an OR, I would have gotten rid of the ugly wheels, the Bilsteins that come on the OR are nothing special, they would have been replaced, and stupid as it may sound, I love how the skewp looks. I wanted a skewp. So then, back down to a Sport, and I have to get rid of the terrible wheels...

    The Pro suddenly becomes a pretty decent value - assuming you can find one - I had no idea I was so lucky.

    I agree with all of these points.

    I "ordered" in February. My dealer is pretty sure he can get an MT LR but this year nothing is certain. I check daily for that specific truck across the country and am ready to jump on anything.

    I've found three others before they were even listed anywhere. Two I couldn't purchase for reasons that aren't related to my situation and one was sold before I contacted the dealer.

    I think I may even put in another order at a dealer in a different province just to up my odds.

    Congratulations! @Roof Walker @Jproz

    Where are you guys located? (general location)
    I'd be curious to see where all these LRs end-up - the general geographic distribution in the country...

    I remember the feeling!

    LOL I think this thread has the majority of the entire production run of manual LR Pro.

    Nicely done y'all.

    I'm in southeast Michigan about 15 miles north of Detroit. I have yet to see another LR at all in the area.

    I know of another in SF Bay so there's at least 3 LRs fairly close by... Toyota had originally intended mine for Oregon.

    heh sounds like a photo opp.

    I’ve already got glove/console organizers, rokblokz, retrax, oem mat, oem remote tailgate, maxxis tires and graphene in progress. (I have a longer list ... this is just to get me started; the pricier off roading and rtt items will need to wait)

    maybe in May (for photos) some time because ... why not

    100%. It was your posts that convinced me as I knew I’d want to ditch the oe tires as fast as possible.
