2016 Tacoma TRD vs 2015 Wrangler Sport

New to the forum. Hello!

I am in the market for a good 4x4. I currently drive a 2014 4cyl Tacoma Prerunner double cab 4x2. The lease is up, and I am looking to jump into either a 2016 V6 Tacoma TRD 4X4 OR a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport S 4X4 w/ wheel package.

I have my pros and cons for both vehicle (aside from the obvious), however I wanted to get insight from the offroad community before I decide.

I live in Nevada, and will be doing my fair share of off-roading, along side throwing dirtbikes on a tow hitch carrier etc.

The Tacoma truck, even with the TRD package, still feels / looks pedestrian. As opposed to the Jeep, which after the wheel package, looks pretty gnarly, yet still feels like it can do a road trip with ease and also have locking rear diff which the Toyota does not.

However, the Jeep doesn't have a truck bed, and lacks some interior comforts and maybe some dependability (as the Tacomas are known to have). I will have to purchase both a MTB rack for the rear tire, in addition to a tow hitch carrier for my dirt bikes.

The 2015 Jeep is priced 5k under the Tacoma.

I've owned both Jeeps and Tacomas so I am familiar with both.

Seriously on the fence. Will be making my purchase on Saturday.

Thoughts / Suggestions?

Thanks all!

Sounds like either will work fine for your purposes. Choose comfort or price.
