Current State of the Taco (Washed and Waxed):
I have been lurking these forums for the past couple years and have found a lot of useful information and insights on what is best for these trucks. I figured it was time to make a build thread.
In January of 2010 I purchased my 2010 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab 4x4 with the TRD Off Road package. I do not have a picture when I first brought it home, but the picture below is stock from my time at Columbus AFB:
I am originally from San Diego and had decent luck with my stock Tacoma in the desert, but the Mississippi mud was a completely different animal and just laughed at my ignorance. The F250 in the background also got stuck.
When I was stationed in New Jersey I figured it was time to start upgrading the truck. The following is a progression from stock to how it sits today.
I then added 17'' Method Double Standards wrapped in Goodyear Duratrac 265/70R17s.
A closer look at the shoes:
I then decided to take advantage of Downsouth Motorsport's Black Friday deal and purchased Icon coilovers and UCAs.
With the setup on the truck:
I then took advantage of CBI's yearly slider sale and purchased their bolt on sliders.
After a 6 month wait, I was finally able to add a satoshi grill thanks to HomerTaco.
