    Just a few expensive things...
    ....because Inferno Orange is the new Black;
    and yes I bought an Orange truck in October

    ******************************************************************

    I have followed so many builds on this website and ExPo for years, it only seems right to continue the fun and the art of spending money.
    With the likes of Dave[TacoDoc], Sean [DefconBrix], Bob [NYCO] and Robert [Barlowrs] and a handful of others like Chux and Crom, I begin this journey [again].
    I have always been a fan of Toyota vehicles and this one seems to fit us just right and be the base of future fun exploring our great nation and hopefully beyond.

    I began my search for a 4WD after my fun weekend with Underwater [h2Overland] Expo East 2015. [great people; changed my view since the year prior]

    Origin: My 2WD 2010 TRD Off Road did quite well that fateful weekend and never got stuck due to my locked rear and careful wheel+throttle and a new trusty [Jeep] friend; thanks Oscar, with a winch ready to poke fun...

    Weeks later my wife and I return from a trip from Maui, which apparently is overrun with Tacomas, which was amazing, and we returned to the idea of upgrading to a family and adventure truck to last us forever.
    So I spent an entire day un-molesting my 2010 for the transfer of goodies to the new truck...


    Goal: To build a daily driver & a hybrid extreme camping; aka Overland/Exploring/Adventuring/genre, truck.

    Enter the Inferno... Oct 24th 2015:taco::bananadead:
    Make: Toyota
    Model: TRD Pro - Inferno Orange
    Year: 2015 [with ~3k miles on the ticker]


    [drove from Atlanta, GA to Asheboro, NC and back in one day to pick this up]

    Day 1
    [in front of my trade in, the 2010 TRD trusty older faithful]
    I have to fix that squat, I like a little bit of rake...plus I tow and have lots of toys

    The original owner of the 2015 bought a 2016 and paid to have the wheels swapped, which I didn't mind due to the faux bead-lock [but the BFG tires would have been nice] and I had my coveted 235/85 Cooper st MAXX on my set from my 2010[which you see now on the truck]. I bought a second pair of TRD wheels last year for my trailer, and just put those on the truck for trade in.

    So, I had the 2016 TRD OR Wheels and tires initially as of a few days ago, which are now set aside for my trailer and I put my 2010 TRD OR wheels back on, since I have run them for a while and I know I'll be running this truck hard.
