Hey guys! I recently purchased a 2001 double cab TRD Off Road. I've wanted a tacoma for years. So, a couple months ago I started looking for one. I found one about 30 minutes from my house. I couldn't be happier!
The plan is to build it as an expedition rig. I love to fly fish and living in Utah provides me with some great fishing. My wife and I love to get out and camp so we will use this truck for that as well. I got the double cab because we are trying to grow our family and didn't want to have to get rid of the truck mid way through the build.
The best part of the build will be the diesel conversion and the CNG conversion that I plan on doing this coming summer. Not sure what motor I will use yet. Suggestions are more then welcomed.
The truck is pretty stock. It came with a 3'' lift and some lame after market exhaust. I will be going through the front end next week and replacing all the bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, various gaskets, and all the fluids. I will also be adding some 17'' XD Addicts with 285/70/17 M/T tires. I ordered a bull bar (temporary until I build my own bumpers). I will be ordering a 20'' LED light bar to mount on the bull bar. I will be ordering a bed bar today. I have ordered some L track for the bed. I have four 4 foot sections coming. It will be nice to have a modular tie down system.
Here is a picture of how the truck looks right now...
