Yeah, that's my issue...I don't care either way about the looks, I'm more interested in a notable uptick in practicality and I'm having a hard time seeing that. If it's not there then I want to save...

Any advantages to doing this?
4yh gen Sport wheels are 7.5" wide, TRD Pro are 7".
TRD Pro seem to sit out 0.5" or so more than Sport wheels, so I guess a little wider track, and the TRD Pro wheels...

The slippery road of front end repairs

I’m considering replacing my LCAs (bushings worn out) and front axles (torn boot), and I need new front pads. At this point, pretty much the entirety of my front end will be disassembled. My UCA’s...

That crash (post #4) happened 5 yrs ago and I had it repaired back to stock. If it ever happens again I'll for sure look for a used hatch, and a new 4X4Labs bumper.
