    Dumb question for a newbie Tundra owner.

    A lot was going on in my life when I purchased my truck and it really just sunk in that I have a lot of nice options and obviously 4wd but not the TRD package.

    So by having a limited non TRD what didn’t I get that a basic TRD package would offer? The big question for me would be what 4wd capabilities did I compromise by not getting the TRD option. Different transfer case?, differentials?

    TRD package is stickers, different shocks and a couple skid plates. You didn’t compromise any 4wd capabilities.

    Main thing would be the skid plates. You could find some take off for sale or get some aftermarket ones.

    There would be some different shocks and skids. I got the TRD Off road because I didn't want to "Miss out", but in hind sight it was kind of a waste. If you plan to actually go off road at all you will want better skid plates than what the package offers, and you can easily match or beat the shocks with aftermarket. On the SR5 trim the Off road package also added the black LED headlights, so that is the one thing I am glad for, but I'm not sure what headlights are standard on the Limited like what you got.

    Yeah you aren't missing out on much. The main things that I wanted that required going to the Off Road trim on the SR5 were the LED headlights (2018 so the black ones weren't out yet...) and fogs, and the upgraded wheels. I've already replaced the suspension, the fogs, and will be doing the same with the skid plates soon.

    As stated above - you didn’t miss out on much. I opted for the Off Road package primarily because I liked the 18” off road wheels over the 20” wheels that come on a limited. The “skid” plates are almost worthless and you can install a better suspension for around $500.

    I knew going into it what I was going to do as far as a lift so that part was a no brained, there was going to be nothing left on the truck. So knowing I am taking it all off I concentrated on my daily driver wants and bought the Platinum
