    I have never even once wished that I had purchased a higher trim level. My SR5 does what I need and want it to do.
    It's an expensive and fruitless endeavor to always want more than you need just because it's available. Look at the ads and magazine articles for cars and trucks. How many of us realistically go charging over sand dunes, drive the Rubicon trail, or need the lowest possible 0-60 and 1/4 mile times? I'm not knocking those who do such things, but a vast majority of us don't.
    My thinking is that I'm incredibly fortunate to be able to afford a new truck at all and I try not to fall for the advertising hype, whether it's for vehicles, cell phones, or the latest and greatest TV. Buy what meets your needs. Just my opinion.

    Nope. I'm a simple guy.
    About the only thing I regret is the longer bed, should've done the DCLB but I'm happy overall.
    The older you get, the less you seem to care for the fancy stuff. Form and function is priority.

    I agree with this. I would bet you my next paycheck that if I got a Pro I'd still think, "Mine doesn't have what that guy's Pro has." That or I would spend $80k making mine the best.

    same boat as everybody else why pay more for stuff I won't use. I'm on my second sr5, I will admit though I do get feature envy once in a while but my wife has an 18 TRD OR 4runner so it has all those new fangled desirable buttons and features for when I'm feeling fancy.

    Interesting you say this because I've been thinking about the same thing for my wife's car. I would really like to get a 4R for her next vehicle, and I considered getting the Limited or TRD OR Premium to satisfy that desire to have something nice. Also scores points with the wife.

    Yeah she sold her 3rd gen 4R and wanted a limited but all they had was a DGM or White TRD OR's, and momma got impatient and bit! Super capable rig but I'll admit I wasn't a fan for the first few months, I never understood why Toyota didn't do more to quiet the road noise in them it sounds like my old 89 Corolla inside, but now I'm used to it and is really nice ride

    I go back and forth. I would have rather had a higher trim level if money wasn’t an object. But it is and I was able to upgrade my wheels and tires for the money I saved on the sr5 package. I wish I had the push button start and I do prefer the seat fabric in the TRD trims but until I hit the lottery there will be some sacrifices in my life. And, honestly, the sr5 isn’t much of a sacrifice. I feel pretty blessed.

    I traded a 2017 4Runner sr5 Premium for my 2020 Tacoma. It was really nice. Loved the heated seats (softex) and I don’t use crawl control so it was perfect. I wish the Tacoma had a sr5 Premium trim mostly for the upgraded seats. Check it out when you look for your wife’s next rig.
