    The Truck Build...

    Like many of you, I've been hanging around TW for years. I finally signed up once I knew I was serious about building my truck and started to post and lurk in the group buys section. I'm still learning what my truck can do and how I can improve its capabilities and my skills behind the wheel.

    In August of 2014, after hearing the news about the upcoming 3rd gen and decided it wasn't for me... I bought a new 2014 Toyota Tacoma DCSB TRD Off Road in Magnetic Gray Metallic. I did a few tweaks and mods till I paid it off in the summer of 2016. Since then I've gone wild with this project! My goal is to wheel some of the Texas offroad parks several times a year and travel and explore a bit further away from the usual tourist crowds and jeepers. Secondary to that goal is to maintain diverse utility, drivability, and reliability. I think I'm on the right track.

    Custom Projects

    Camp Lighting:
    I got more @Iggy pods to play with, so I stuck some on my bed rack. I used a relayed switch through my Bussmann RTMR fuse/relay panel under the hood to send power to a 6 circuit Blue Sea fuse block in the bed with four switches on it to isolate each light. I mounted the Blue Sea fuse block in the passenger side bed cubby on the underside of the top portion to keep the space available for ratchet straps or bungies.

    Maxtrax mount:
    I wanted a way to mount my maxtrax to my bed rack without taking up valuable roof space. I wound up using a piece of plywood drilled out to mount it to the tubes of the rack using u-bolts. I cut a bit of weight out of it with the hole saw bit I had left over from my snorkel install. The holes in the middle of the board helped make install easier by allowing access to behind the panel. Once I was finished cutting and drilling I finished the board with roll on bed liner that was left over from finishing the tub of my camp trailer.

    Prinsu rack install:
    Zach makes a great racks and accessories for them! I was so happy to get my Cabrac from him but I didn't have a buddy around to assist me with the installation at the time. Zach suggests assembling the rack on the ground prior to installing it on the cab, but some guys install it in pieces on the cab if they are by themselves. I wanted to stick to Zach's suggestion, so I built my rack on the ground and let it sit on my dining room floor while my buddy was out of town. Impatience got the better of me and I wound up rigging up a block and tackle in the garage that I use for cleaning deer. It made one-man installation very easy!

    Hot Water on demand:
    I got an on-board water kit from @ProForce and adapted a tankless propane water heater for hot water. CAMP SHOWERS!
    20161114_150204.jpg

    RTT Overhang Mod:
    Climbing in and out of the RTT is kind of a pain when ducking through the overhang of my Tepui Gran Sabana. I had some leftover tent poles laying around and decided to put them to good use, by drilling a few holes in the overhang support bar angled just right to hold the tent poles. The poles lift the center of the overhang material enough to give more head room when climbing in and out with the added benefit of preventing rain water from pooling up.

    Have I told you that I love mountains?

    I've made a few visits to the summit of Texas' highest point, Guadalupe Peak (Elev. 8,750'). I know the Rockies of Colorado get most of the hype, but the Guadalupe Mountains are truly a gem in their own right.

    Most Recent Wheeling Trips and Treks - PIC HEAVY(ISH)

    HIDDEN FALLS ADVENTURE PARK 2018/03/16-18

    Went wheeling with some fine folks @SuperBad @n0troublen0fuss @MellyMel and a special appearance by the one and only @ChadsPride

    It was my first time at HF and it did not disappoint. Beer, whiskey, and rocks were abundant. I had taken my truck out once before after stepping up to 35s but it was rainy and muddy which made for some slick wheeling. This trip out was the real test of the tires, front locker, and updated suspension. Everything worked great, and my truck is feeling strong.

    THE BIG ONE

    August of 2017 I took off for the mountains once again. The goal of this trip was to see a little bit of everything, hit some trails, hit even more beer, and escape the peak of the oppressive Texas summer heat.

    I started in Colorado of course... home base for me is in the Salida area most every time I go up that way. I did some more trails in the Sawatch and tore up some pizza and beer. You ever got to Salida, go to Moonlight Pizza, (Amicas is good too, just not as good), and thank me later. Soulcraft Brewing is legit, but most every brewery in CO has something good to offer. Elevation Brewing is in in the next town over from Salida and it's my favorite brewery of all time. You ever go to Telluride, go to Brown Dog Pizza. I forget the name of the local beer joint there, but Brown Dog had many of their beers on tap and they went down really effing easy after the descent from Black Bear Pass.

    After a few days in the Rocky Mountain State I scooted over to Moab. It's no secret that Moab gets damn hot in the summer just like Texas does (aside from the humidity), but what most people don't realize is that you can drive 45 minutes southeast of town into the La Sal mountains and camp for free in the national forest at a higher elevation where the temps are amazing. Moab brewing is badass, they do a lot of red ales and ambers (naturally, with all the red rocks around and whatnot) which I'm a fan of. The imperial red rye was mighty tasty. I was out there as a solo rig, so I didn't go crazy on the trails given this is my first time there (to wheel), but I did manage to have some fun. I love Utah. I spent a few weeks out there in 2011 and get questioned a lot on my old pictures from my friends. They are often surprised to learn of the diverse landscapes that make up the state.

    After a brief stint around Denver it was time to figure out wtf to do for the rest of the trip. I had planned up to this point, but really I'd been so busy with work and prep that I didn't nail down what I was going to do for the duration of my time off. I heard some mess about an eclipse or some crap like that and figured why the hell why not, I'll go take a look. I thought it'd be a lame novelty to be in the path of totality, but I was dead wrong. I made it to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming to watch the sky get dark at 11:26 am. It cooled off a good bit and the sky looked as if there was a fading sunset to the south and to the north. It was unreal. Afterward, the suds at Snake River Brewing continued the euphoria of the day, despite fighting the massive crowds on the roads.

    I then made my way over into Idaho to see a longtime friend and his family. We decided to check out what Montana and Idaho had to offer, and we hit the road together. What we didn't realize is that there were dozens and dozens of active wildfires all over the northern Rockies just north of where he lives now. We found out the hard way on our way to Missoula, Montana. We had to go out of our way to find a national forest that was clear of smoke and clear of fire. We did find a ton of great beer though, which was half the point of traveling up to Missoula. We then wound around the Lewis and Clark Discovery Route back into Idaho to meet up with the rest of my buddy's family for his daughter's MTB race. I was back on my own now and decided I wanted to give Montana another shot... Glacier National Park has been high on my list for so long now, and I couldn't be this close to it and not go. It's true what is said about Glacier, it really is the crown jewel of the National Park system. It was packed when I went there, which was a bummer, but I still had an awesome time cruising up and down Going-To-The-Sun Road and hiking a few trails to get away from the crowds.

    Afterward I decided to head back into Wyoming on my way to spend more time in Colorado before it became time to head home. I went through Yellowstone National Park which was really cool, but also a bit of a beating. The crowds were stupid thick. I picked the wrong time of year to show up, but still found a few ways to enjoy myself.

    I did a few other things here and there on my way back to Texas, but those were most of the highlights. Unfortunately I had to get back to my family for a medical emergency.

    Critter tally: Elk, White Tail Deer, Mule Deer, Turkey, Owls, all sorts of high alpine mammals, no bears and no moose :(, no bigfoot and only one chupacabra :cookiemonster:

    Pics are mostly hi-res from my camera, I still have some on my phone to go through (like all of my Moab pics...). Sorry if you have potato internet like I do, because it's about to get reamed.

    Also how do you like the 255/85s? Have you used other brands and if so which ones do you like the best.

    thanks, I like it too!

    The 255s have worked great for me and have yet to let me down. I'm nervous to air them down lower than 18-20 as I'm not sure if they'd be more likely to pop a bead than wider tires, but at that psi I've been able to overcome most obstacles.

    I've never used another 255, but if I did I'd go with another mud terrain. My next tires won't be so skinny, and will be a bit taller, too.

    Later today I'll update those other posts with some trip report stuff and photos, as well as some build process pics for some of the more interesting stuff or uncommon projects.

    Those should get the job done... the numbers on them look like they're load range D but I can't confirm that.

    Nice. I haven't given any real thought to my next set of tires... mine have a bit of tread left and hopefully last me till I can re-gear

    I'm supercharged so I have power, and before I added the SC and all the armor it still got up and went... I just want bigger and better when the time is right. I don't regret these tall skinnies one bit, but they won't perform better than 35"+

    Nice man! The truck is killer. You decide on paint for the basket?

    Thanks Andre!

    Man, I cannot decide what to do with that basket lol I'm probably going to leave it for a while.

    All those brackets holding on my lights and quick fists have a silver finish to them so they kinda allow the basket to match them. I'll probably take it all apart during the dog days of summer that are ahead of us and get it all looking good once and for all.
