Calinative68's '13 Black DCSB TRD 4X4 Build
 
12 Attachment(s)
Just picked up a 2013 black Tacoma 4X4 TRD Sport! This is the 3rd Tacoma I've owned - prev a 2010 Black Off Road Dbl Cab and a 2004 Green Dbl Cab Pre-Runner. My goal is to have a daily driver with off road capabilities. I have to say that the 2013 feels tighter with a better build quality.

2013 Tacoma V-6 4X4 w/ TRD Sport Package

JBL stereo with Entune/Navigation

Installed as of June 21, 2013
Tailgate DYI theft prevention mod

Dealer installed black sidebars
Dealer installed hood deflector
Re-cycled bed extender from my 2010 Tacoma

Next up interior:
Jumpers LED interior set
Center console cargo net
TRD Leather Shift Knob
Tint 20 or 35 all around/50 windshield

Next up exterior

I think they would look sharp, nice truck by the way. are those leather seat covers?

Thanks TooSense! Appreciate it.
They are Katzkin, so not a cover, but a direct replacement of the factory fabric. Had it installed along with the heated seat option, took 2-3 days. Option is available through local dealer when I picked up the truck. www.katzkin.com.
It takes the interior to a whole other level - Nice and soft. My only regret was not getting a contrasting color for the stitching. Overall love it.

What color Katzkin did you go with and where did you have the heated seat switches mounted? I'm looking to make this one of the first mods to my '13. Great looking truck btw!

Hey Steve - black on black, even though it looks more like a really dark graphite - the switches are mounted on the sides of the seats about 4 inches in front of the lumbar control. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow.

Thanks for the Kudo's!

Washed, clayed, polished, and waxed, just in time for the summer. Also painted the front emblem with Krylon Fusion Satin Black; 7 coats later turned out like a champ!

Changed badging up a bit. Removed stock badges on tailgate and added red TRD badge on right side (where V6 was). Added TRD badge on front grill as well.
The tailgate is a keeper, jury is out on the front grill; we will see how it holds up (did put Locktite to help keep it on place).

Thinking of these wheels when I finally get around to doing a lift; Ballistic Jesters.
