2017 Midnight Black Sport Double Cab, Long Bed Automatic
I started this build with one thing in mind, sport adventures. I professionally race Stand Up paddle boards, surf, mountain bike, camp, and do some light off-roading. On top of all of my equipment, I have to fit in my 5 year old Rotti and my 6 year old Morkie. I drive A LOT of highway km so I am trying to balance off-road capabilities with drivability.

Nice build.

Thanks. It has been fun so far. Haven't done anything to a vehicle I have owned since my van build and my old ass ranger (when I was a kid.) Never realized the rabbit hole I was going down when I bought the Tacoma lol.

Your build looks sick so far. I love how adventurous it is and that you listed your MTB trips. I don't see many Taco waves going on yet, but I'm gonna start initiating them. Welcome to T3G.


Thanks! just got some put some RCI sliders on a few weeks back. Pretty excited to get a big more trail armour so we can take it to some harder spots in the summer.
