    Hello there. I'm a Southern California Native. Born an raised in L.A I've been ripping my whole region from Santa Fe New Mexico to Oregon, back down to L.A and everything in between. My life long playground. As a Grom' I skated, surfed, raced BMX, road dirt bikes, hiked, camped and snowboarded. I built ramps, tree houses, played a little sports and even shot rifles. To make a long story short, I'm older now and have taken some slams therefor I'm getting into off-roading.

    So anyhow I bought a 2018 Tacoma TRD Pro. After everything I researched and all I want to do I thought the New TRD Pro would be a good "Beginners" so to speak vehicle. Like I said I am new to Owning my Own Off Road Vehicle but not new to offload. I have a great understanding of most things but would like to be smart and a responsible 4xtruck driver.

    I plan on upgrading my truck with a few protective accessaries, tires and such but for the most part keep it close to factory as the trd pro, from what I understand is already dialed and for the most part working really well. As I learn more and make more friends I'm sure I will build my own truck some day. But again I think this truck will serve me and my skills just fine. I guess my local spots right now while I get use to everything is Los Angeles Crest and Big Bear Zones. I also hit the desert a lot. After all, the thing is like a Brand new Dirt-Bike and a BMW at the same time. LOL.

    Looking forward to learning, making friends and enjoying the trails! Cheers!

    Sincerely,
    Blackntosh
