2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD OR 4x4

Main Purpose: Daily driver, mild off roading on the weekends and hitting some trails.

Previous Truck: 2014 Toyota Tundra

I traded in my Tundra for the Tacoma for a couple of reasons, main one being gas mileage, I was averaging anywhere between 12-13 MPG on the Tundra and now I’m getting anywhere between 19-21. I drive about 20 each way to work so it makes a bit of a difference.

Purchased on March 2017, while I’ve had it for over a year now I haven’t been able to do much to it as life priorities have gotten on the way.

As of right now I’m currently deployed in South Korea and won’t see my truck for a little longer but it’s okay because I’ve been ordering parts here and there, and will have a massive mod day when I get back lol.

Current Mods:
-OEM TRD Pro Grill
-LED low beams
-LED High Beams
-LED Fog Lights
-LED reverse lights
-Plasti dip all emblems
-Ultimate turn signals
-Ultimate LED interior lights
-Hondo Garage unholey mounts with ram mounts for my phone

Mods sitting at my house waiting for my install
-Quick lift hood struts
-center console organizer
-New Radio Knubs
-Baja Designs rocks lights for some purpose that I am not sure yet.

Soon very soon Mods(within 60 days from ordering)
-Fox kit level 2 with 14” 650# springs
-New tires 33x12.50R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers
-OEM TRD Pro Skid Plate
-still deciding if I want to wait for the 17x9 SCS Ray 10’s or go for the F5.

Future Mods
-Prinsu Design Cabrac
-Aftermarket front and rear bumper
-Hard shell probably ARE overlander
and probably more that I’m forgetting

Well here is a picture for now.
