The TRD Pro model is one of the favorites, and it comes with a specially designed front skid plate, wheels, Crawl Control, TRD Fox high-performance off-road suspension, and a roof rack. The TRD Sport is another favorite model, which looks unique thanks to its scoop hood, front spoiler, color-keyed accents, and black roof rails.
