    Dealer offered an attractive price on a new 2016 1734. I liked what I saw because it didn't have a black interior. The sun shines hot in Kansas and black shows every spec of dust possible. I have a couple of old show cars so I can't help but keep everything as spotless as possible. Didn't jump on it as I wanted more info. Didn't know what to hope for?

    I think you're referring to the 1794 package? It has a brown leather interior correct? If so, it's the luxury package but nothing different engine or power train wise from any other Tundra. Expect 13-17 mpg.

    If it were me, as long as it's a 5.7L with 4WD and tow package, I'd jump on it in a heartbeat.

    What' interesting is I asked a salesman what the 1794 represented and he had no clue. Took me 30 seconds on internet to discover the origination of this model #.

    It's just a western themed platinum. Only thing I don't like about them is the wood trim.

    The Toyota plant in which the Tundra is built is near San Antonio and sits on land that the company bought from the oldest working cattle ranch in the state, the JLC Ranch. That ranch was founded in 1794.

    With most salesmen standing around looking for an unfamiliar face like a hungry wolf smelling fresh meat, you'd think they would have the initiative to at least become knowledgeable on the product they are supposed to be selling. That may be why they deserve the reputation they have.

    Yup. And after the OP left, he probably still didn't take 10 seconds to google it.

    If you don't mind how much is the attractive package? I'm looking at buying a 2016 1794 in Southern California? I fell in love with the midnight black.

    They supposedly received a $2,000 credit from Toyota on the invoice because they provided this truck for a display at the Kansas Speedway. They said they were passing this on in their showroom pricing. I think they had this copper/bronze truck in their inventory for quite a while.

    I wasn’t aware of that and never thought about it long enough to look it up. Thanks, that’s a cool little tidbit :)

    You better get it!!!! I just bought a 2017 1794 here in Kansas as well. I love the interior of the truck. Mine is white with the TRD off road package and TRD dual exhaust. Haven't got it yet, the dealer is tinting windows, putting in spray in bedliner etc. Should have it Wednesday or Thursday. Best of luck to you. Hope to see you around the neighborhood!!!

    I really hate all of you KS guys and your 1794s ;) If given the choice between it and a PRO I'd take the cowhide any day of the week.

    You know you can order the 1794 with the TRD pro package right?

    $100 addon for the TRD Pro package on the 1794 edition. Go to the Toyota builder. Select 1794, go to packages, click TRD pro package for $100 bucks and click details if you don't believe me.

    Copied Directly from toyotas site.

    TRD OFF-ROAD PACKAGE — Upgrades standard wheels to 18-in. split 5-spoke TRD Off-Road Package alloy wheels with black accents and Michelin LTX A/T2 P275/65R18 tires. Includes trail-tuned Bilstein® shock absorbers, rear-side privacy glass, engine skid plate, fuel tank skid plate, front tow hooks on 4x2, and bedside TRD Off-Road decal

    No shit? I guess that never occurred to me, does "trail tuned Bilstein shock absorbers" mean the same shocks that come on the PRO?

    Though if I had the money for a 1794, I'd probably just order it with the TRD package and replace the shocks with Kings.

    I think I'm correct when I say that the shocks on the TRD package is NOT the same as the ones on the PRO. It is a little misleading IMO that the website says that when configuring it. They are Bilsteins, but are not the same as on the PRO. I do like the TRD wheels better, at least to start with.

    You can get the TRD OR package on almost any trim levels (except the SR and Pro) and it is NOTHING comparing to the Pro. Most of us throw these shocks and wheels/tires away when upgrading with aftermarket parts.

    Don't waste your money on the TRD OR package.

    Agreed, that's why I was skeptical when reading the description of the shocks.

    I could be mistaken (it is still the morning after all), but I thought the TRD package included both the TRD OR shocks and the tow package. The bigger radiator in that makes it worth it, but I agree on the shocks. Mine will be going in the trash here in a few months as well.

    Actually, you cannot add-on the TRD PRO package. There is no such package!!!

    The TRD off-road package does not have the same suspension as the TRD PRO. Yes the Off-road package does have a trail tuned bilstiens, but it does not have the same capabilities as the PRO bilstiens.

    I got the TRD OR package simply because I prefer the wheels over the chrome hubcap looking ones of the regular 1794. The wheels won't be on for long and the whole package is only $100, so it's not like it broke the bank. Can you guys advise me which shocks to go with to give me a "leveled" look and a nice ride? Don't care too much about off road capability. Are the Bilstein 6100s the way to go? Everything I've read advises against leveling kit. Another dumb question.....What are Kings?

    The 5100's would fit the ticket of what your looking for it sounds like. I've heard a lot of guys that're happy with em.

    King Shocks is one of the higher end suspension companies, along with Fox and ADS. They'd run around $2000+ to put on your Tundra.
