    So, I finally made the plunge. I’ve wanted a Tacoma for years, owned a few 4Runners here and there but really I come from the lowered Volkswagen world. I may dump a few photos of those below.

    1/02/20 - Placed the order for my new truck.

    2/27/20 - I brought home the truck of my dreams. I purchased a 2020 TRD Pro in Army Green. I’ve wanted a Tacoma for years like I said but 2020 brought a long some features that sealed the deal and got me in it. Big one for me, the power seat, I’m 6’2 and a big guy. That tiny bit of extra head room is super important. CarPlay was a big bonus as well. Anyways, onto the fun stuff.

    I had a small pile of parts growing on my dining room table since before even ordering the truck. Nothing too crazy, small things, a lot of Meso Customs parts, and just a couple of things to make life in the new truck a little better.

    *Modifications/Add Ons*

    - Meso Total Tails stage 1 taillight kit

    Tires/Wheels

    - Meso Vent ring kit
    - Meso ultimate map lights
    - Mountain Hatch tailgate insert

    The plan for the truck is simple, it’s my daily driver but my girlfriend and I want to turn it into our little overlanding/road trip rig.

    If you’d like to follow the build my Instagram is @dorseydave. That will get updated far more than this. This is more for my own reference.

    Got the front windows tinted this morning. Matches pretty well!

    also installed some LED license plate bulbs. Makes the back of the truck look so much better at night.
