    That much dealer markup is ridiculous imo. Any is imo and definitely worth adding the TRD Pro suspension, wheels and exhaust to a Limited or Platinum makes sense to me. Adding the grill would go either way for me. I am personally not drawn to the 1794's.

    Programming is not done, the AC module likely has a temp sensor (the gen 2 does) and it's probably more than just a basic parts swap to retrofit.

    Lots of opinions everywhere about upgrading a platinum versus starting with the Pro. Clearly from my profile you can see which route I chose. Plenty of others in this forum that chose the opposite.

    Programming in the car most likely accepts either dual zone climate or hot/cold. To have separate computers or software would just be stupid. The digital thermometers / sensors and the switches combined probably cost just a few dollars (I get that every dollar counts, too).

    The cost to have both parts supplied most likely saves very little money vs just having dual zone climate. I know a few engineers at Ford and Chrysler and they claim that it's more expensive to do it this way, but you gain back the money + more by having more people buy the higher trims for those features. That's on a lot of options too.

    I get that you have to distinct your trim levels, but some things should come standard by now. Rear view cameras are standard, but not climate control?

    Funny how you mention you wish all were temp instead of hot/cold - I absolutely 1000% prefer hot/cold over temperature. I have the hardest time finding a comfortable temperature on long trips with the temp settings compared to high low. If it gets just a hair chilled I raise it 0.5 degree and suddenly it's too hot, compared to hot/cold where I can adjust it 2 or 3 clicks, and if that gets too warm I go back 1 or 2 clicks cold. To me using the HVAC in vehicles was never broken, why did they go try and fix it, they only made it worse (this isn't just a Toyota problem).

    Whoa. Dual climate control was one of the biggest reasons I got the limited instead of the pro. That and there were no incentives on the pro trucks. I was able to make my truck ride like a pro for less than a stock truck would have costed and I got more creature comforts. I'll agree that they need to base the pro off of a limited.

    The no incentives is aggravating. Had to go with a local credit union through the dealership for decent financing rates. 3% vs 5.25% for 60 months with Toyota financial. The only incentive I had was 500.00 off MSRP for a loyalty discount.

    I agree. Terribly uncomfortable not only for long road trips, but even 20 minutes going to work each day. Leather is way too tough.

    I have though about taking it to a local upholstery shop and doing something with the foam in the center of the seat. I sit on it rather than in, and I am pushing maximum density as well!:benchpress:

    I don't see what the big deal is with the Raptor. I saw nearly 10 Raptors in a 12 hour shift. I don't see what's so special about them. Try to find 10 TRD Pros in the same 12 hour shift and that would be impossible.

    It makes me laugh when Pro owners want to put the silly little lights in their grill like the Raptor. The PRO could use some improvement in creature comforts and some offroad stuff.

    I'm a PROUD TRD Pro owner and have the tendency to the the 'Jeep' wave when I see another Pro.

    I travel with my Pro and I take it offroad. Therefore, my comment above is most accurate.

    I've taken my Pro over Cinnamon Pass in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado but I highly doubt a Raptor could've done it.

    I might be biased, but I'm simply not a Ford guy...and will never be. Just saying.
