    Right now I have the SR5 seats and for long drives my back really starts bugging me. What I want to know is there much of a difference between the two seats and if it's worth it to upgrade.

    I sat in both the TRD seats are way more conformable, but if i were going to go through the transplant process it probably wouldn't be too much more to get some like really nice seats instead of the TRD. Like they are good but not the best. :)

    You can get them cheaper but $399 each and 99 (I think) for each seat track. Plus seat heaters and lumbar. I was going to find some others like out of another car but I just didn't want to wait! :)

    I like my SR5 seats better. I don't know what it is, body type or whatever, but they suit my back perfectly. I had lower back surgery in 2005, I still have some soreness here and there, and I did a 14 hour drive Dec 19/20 through that freaking blizzard and I had no problems at all. I've driven/sat in TRD's a few times, just doesn't feel the same to me.

    SR5 is basically an interior option package including things like power windows, power mirrors, leather steering wheel and shifter knob, and a couple other things. TRD has some interior option upgrades beyond that (seats, for example) plus some exterior items such as Bilstein shocks and alloy wheels that differ between Sport and Off Road models. Check out the Toyota website for more specific info.

    I love my Sport seats... That being said, I've only ridden in an SR5 twice, and that was a while back.

    I have both trucks and find the TRD seats a little more comfortable. For me, I like how the side wings of the TRD sport seats wrap around and feel more secure. Both seats seem a little short on length on the seat cushion.
    It's all subjective though and to each his own. My friend is fairly heavy and doesn't like his TRD seats because they wrap around more and press in on his sides. It's all in what feels good to you.

    I've only sat in the TRD seats once and it's a lot more of a tighter fit but the SR5's seem too soft for me

    I agree- they are a tighter fit, so that may not suit some people. The other thing I forgot to mention is that they seem to sit a little low.
