    I actually have a Silver Streak Mica TRD Sport coming next week (paid nothing so far) but now I am rethinking it.

    Which color do you like best? Also, not sure I like the hood scoop, but wanted the long bed so my choice is limited there.

    How much difference is that foot going to make? I like the looks of the Off Road wheels and tires and it will be a while before I can spend more money to customize... any opinions?

    Couldn't figure out how to do a poll.

    I'm really enjoying my Magnetic AC Sport. Wheels can come and go.

    dont get the sport if you plan to do some offroading before you get tires, the sport tires are almost worthless in sc at least

    Forrest green, why get what everyone else has? Be brave, dare to be different. Or, be a sheeple.

    Get whatever color you want but stick with the sports edition. You can still off-road with it nicely and everything is color-matched. Lots of people now-a-days are painting all their chrome parts to match their trucks paint.:cool:

    I've got a Magnetic Gray, and kind wish I had bought a Silver one instead... It's way too much effort to keep it looking good.

    If I found either color in DC 6spd SB I'd buy it quick.

    I would buy the off-road strictly for the selectable locker. The more aggressive tires are nice, too.

    The hood scoop and painted mirrors/bumpers/grill are nice, but the off-road package looks nice too.

    The box size all depends on what you are doing.

    I made the same mistake so I had to spend an extra $1200 for an ARB locker.

    The MGM is lovely but not when it's dusty or dirty, IMO. It took me months to make the decision but I went with SS and am very happy with it. I would have preferred the color coded bumpers and sport hood but sacrificed those for the max towing capacity of the offroad package.
