    Same here. I'm very happy with the Sport, although I would have preferred not to have the non-functional scooped hood. I'm getting used to it though.

    Non-functional?


    Amazon makes it functional. Maybe cheaper if you buy a light bar.
    Also buy the switch at www.ch4x4.com for $19

    My skewp functions as a beverage holder. It sits perfectly.EA74CAE8-8F8F-4D1F-BE60-CCB82F8D72C0.jpg

    My second Sport. Not a hardcore off-road person. I’ve hit Forest roads and some sand/dirt mix trails but so far nothing crazy. It’s my daily (110-120 miles day)

    That is pretty cool, man! Thanks for the info.

    It does well as a beverage holder too!

    I have a 2016 Sport - (Just turned 100,000 Miles) ...However I hated the SKOOOOP ! Especially when cresting a steep hill when it restricted forward visability.
    My solution - Swapped it for an Off Road hood with a person that want the scoop on their Off-Road (Go figure) Never thought about putting lights in it !
    Now if I could find Raptor Lights for my OEM Pro Grille (all the lights on the market are for the After-Market knock-offs and don't fit.

    One nice thing about the MT is the gearing is 4.30 so itll accelerate quicker and reverse wont feel geared for the highway. Theres no upside to owning a sport.

    Edit: post corrected.

    All Manual Transmission V6's get 4.30's and the all the AT V6's get 3.91's, has nothing to do with Trim Level.

    I stand corrected. There is no good reason for buying a sport then... sorry.

    Last fall we went for a drive through some snow and mud and I can tell you that having a locker saved my bacon...I won't mention the fact that the guy in a sport was stuck :rolleyes:. So say what you want but...:fingerscrossed:

    I love mine. Would’ve gotten a 2WD, but I do take a couple trips to the beach every once in a while.

    Sport should be an appearance package

    Electronic real locker should be a stand alone option, or standard equipment.

    TRD Pro should be available with out a sunroof.

    Its part of the premium package with all the OR/Sports/Limited models so Pro gets the treatment. Thats Toyota simplicity

    I don’t understand why they don’t offer the locker on all trims. I would’ve gladly paid 1500$ for one. I wanted the off-road but needed DCSB manual, wasn’t shelling out 61k for a pro.

    I do love my sport though, haven’t let me down. I also love the look of the scoop.

    The scoop looks amazing from the drivers seat, love it!

    Also my wife thinks the scoop looks awesome, does that count for anything? Haha
