I think dark colored wheels look really good on Speed Way Blue, so I think the dark graphite gunmetal BFDs would be a great choice for your SWB Tacoma.
The BFD is a stronger wheel than the Konig Countersteer Offroad (different manufacturing process), but the Countersteer Offroad is still plenty capable for off-road and trail use. The main thing to consider would be whether or not you want to go with a smaller diameter (16" Countersteer offroad) or larger diameter (18" for the FN Wheels BFD).
The BFD can take more abuse than the CSO, but the tires for 18" wheels will have less sidewall than a comparable diameter for 16" wheels. Do you need more sidewall flex for the type of trails you'll be driving?
Personally I like the look of longer spokes with the 18" design of the BFD, and I'm OK with the amount of sidewall that I have with my 285/65R18 tires. But some guys that frequent more intense trails need more sidewall, so 285/75R16 tires give them what they need.
I'll send you a PM, and we'll figure out what will work the best for you.
