    Hello TW!

    Due to the shortage of USA-made Billet that we've been dealing with since July, we are now modifying our TacoBox production schedule to best meet demand.

    What we've decided to do is reorganize our Built Units page to now list all TacoBox applications individually, which include the following:


    If interested, please follow an above link for your application and click on the "Notify when in stock" button so we better gauge interest to help the current limited production schedule.

    We will randomly reach out to everyone (via email) with production and ETA updates. Thank you!

    Click the below link to view all applications:

    Update: We have *finally* updated the text on all our TacoBox pages linked above. Please take a moment to visit a TacoBox page and look through the new, far more detailed info! Thank you :hattip:

    Hey, did you ever find someone to test the Tacobox on a 3.5 auto?

    Hello TS7xTaco, thank you for the question. I've had a few people reach out to me but nothing has been set yet. Due to a very important project that I've been working hard on for the past few months I probably won't be pursuing this until sometime next spring.

    I see you're in NM. Do you ever come out to Cali for some wheel'n?

    Thanks!
    BigMike

    Hey, thanks for the reply! I've never actually gone to Cali to go wheeling. I have family there and visit occasionally. Me and a friend of mine are in the process of planning a trip to the Rubicon hopefully some time next year though.
    I like the functionality of the Tacobox and am definitely interested in getting one in the future! Cant wait to see more product development from Marlin for the modern Toyotas.

    I would also be interested in the TacoBox in the future.
    So it isn't ready for those of us with the 3.5L Auto?

    @BigMike, any updates on when you guys might start building the taco boxes for the 3rd gens again? I got money that needs spendin'! I called a few days ago and the lady I spoke with mentioned something about an oil issue and redesign of the adapter.
