    Hello Everyone,

    My name is Mike and I've been reading and researching on TacomaWorld for over 5 years hoping to one day pull the trigger on a Tacoma. My family has had a Toyota/Lexus in the family since 1991, and I always regarded the Tacoma's as a bulletproof go anywhere do anything and will keep running in a hundred years type of vehicle. The day finally came last August when I bought my 2019 TRD Off Road 4x4 6-MT. Since I have time on my hands now working from home due to COVID I decided to finally become a member and post about my build. I'm starting an adventure/toy rig and will definitely post updates as they go along. I want to thank everyone on this forum beforehand for the great unbiased info they post without all the usual thread BS. Here are a few pictures of the rig so far.

    Current Mods:
    OEM 4 Runner TRD Pro Wheels
    Falken Wildpeak AT3-W 265/70/17
    TheYotaGarage TRD Pro Grill with TSS Sensor
    Diamondback HD Bed Cover

    Items on the way:
    Titan fuel tanks sidekick 15 gallon gas tank
    Tera Pump TREP03 fuel transfer pump
    Tufskinz Mud flaps

    I have been reading about the Titan Sidekick Aux tank and it looks like the clearances will be very tight but it might just fit under the diamondback HD. Will post a separate thread on the install if anyone wants to take this on for themselves. from what I can tell the sidekick eats up very little usable space from the Tacoma bed as it uses the wheel arch area for the fuel. It would also be very convenient to have onboard fuel for my dual-sport.

    Plans for the future:
    I plan on rigging a Risk Racing Lock n Load Pro and Diamondback Headache rack on top of the diamondback to carry a dual-sport bike (Kawasaki KLR250) with the diamondback rear extender. This seems like the ideal setup to be able to utilize the full bed space without the need for a hitch mounted carrier or a trailer.
