    Go with the 4x4. I hear 4Wheelparts up in this area is a good place to get stuff done. But if you wanna save some money you need to hit a small local shop (I have a friend that works on Z's but he'll help me out from time to time because he has all the tools). If you want more direction on making your truck mean, PM me I live in Irving (chances are I have thought of it).

    yes go with the trd sport, you definitely wont regret it. Im in euless and 4wheelparts is a great store to buy what you need, but dont get anything put on there, cause the labor there is way overpriced. i have a friend that has helped me with my truck, lift, headers, etc. he is the cheapest guy i have found and can do anything

    Good truck, good looking general off-roading.. TRD SPORT 4x4..
    Wanna Wheel it, and really play? 4x4 TRD OR

    pretty simple if you ask me.. if you plan on spend a lot of money and will probably replace everything like the typical TW patron.. go for the sr5 4x4.. :D

    Really, I think OR is the way to go. The best thing about the sport is cosmetic which can be replaced (Hood scoop). You can't just throw a locking rear differential on a truck like you can a new hood. :)

    But it all boils down to what you want to use it for I suppose.
