    After selling my 2010 Access cab Tacoma 4x4 with 53K miles, I purchased this new project I call "TRD TAQUITO". I purchased it on May 20th, 2016 with approx. 55K miles. It was completely stock aside from the after market wheels and offroad tires. I will list the upgrades I have made and the mods. I will update regularly as more upgrades are made. This build will be intended for Sandunes, Desert, and as an Overland adventure truck. I'm stoked to build this truck, as there are a lot of amazing Tacomas on this Forum and all over the roads. I'am pretty new to this community, but have already received some love from a few with some decisions. Thanks TW members and Toyota enthusiasts. :cheers:

    Here is the rig as it progresses...

    Yea. The install went pretty good. Given the fact that I've never installed a stereo before. The instructions are pretty clear and the metra kit fits really well. The only tough time I had, and it really wasn't too bad, was stuffing all the cables and harnesses behind the deck again. Kinda tricky, but it works. I really like this set up. Makes the sound of the truck 100% better.
