The time has come for us to say goodbye to our beloved Tacoma. It has been a phenomenal truck and we have no doubt it will treat the next owner just as amazingly as it has us. Please take the time to read through this entire sale post so you can get a solid understanding of what makes this Tacoma one of the best out there. We have spared no expense and built our ultimate travel rig, having received the ultimate compliment multiple times of “you built my dream truck.” We did so because we had no intention of selling it, but alas we really enjoyed the process and are wanting to do another build.

What started off as a bone stock 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab Long Bed 4x4 with the technology package, sunroof, JBL sound system, tow package, rubber floor mats, and bed mat rapidly turned into our ultimate travel Tacoma. We purchased the truck with the intent of creating something that could take us anywhere, at any time and we succeeded. Over the past 4 years the build snowballed into a go anywhere, on any trail, exploration vehicle. This truck has been all over the Western United States and has never let us down. This is a turnkey Tacoma that you could pick up, put fuel in, load the fridge, and hit the road for weeks without issue or hesitation.

An extensive service history and receipts folder almost 2” thick will go to the new owner. The truck has been regularly maintained by a trusted Toyota Master Tech and trusted shops at early service intervals. The vehicle has been well cared for inside and out and while it has most certainly been used to travel as far as we wanted, and has the pin stripes to prove it, however it has never been abused and was always kept clean inside and out. We built this truck with the intention to keep for a long time and not to just beat on. The truck has never been jumped and will happily hold its own on any dirt road taking you wherever you desire.

This vehicle has an extensive show history and has been featured numerous times by many of the best aftermarket parts manufacturers in the industry including a national television ad campaign with Toyo Tires. The truck is also currently displayed on the C4 Fabrications website, was an exhibitor vehicle at the 2019 Overland Expo, and has been displayed for Dirt King Fabrication and Toyo Tires, as well as in print media for Fifteen52 and Baja Designs. The truck has been an integral part of our fundraising efforts for the past few years and with the support of our sponsors and the off-road community has helped raised over $45,000 for first responder related charities.

The truck is heavily documented on our Instagram our @taco_nobodys .

The truck has two separate build threads that chronical most of the build. They can be found at the links below.

Thank you. It was a very tough decision, and one we didn't take lightly because we love the truck and are actually pretty sad about the sale. My wife doesn't even want to discuss the fact that it will be leaving at some point.

Damn, definitely did not see that coming!

I’m betting on a RAM build next. They seem to be the Tacoma “upgrade” and I want to move to a RAM eventually as well.

Good luck with sale

Hey thanks man. I appreciate the compliment. I'll likely still be around. I still love Tacomas and don't mind sharing what I've learned to help people out. You got to share that info!! No point keeping it all to yourself!! 😁🤙

We are still researching and have not decided on any one thing yet. We have a few options we are considering, but nothing set in stone. So far no one has guessed the frontrunner.

Our lips are sealed until we have the keys. 😉

I will say I am enjoying the options that people think we would go for. A lot of really good vehicles have been suggested and it's flattering to know that others think we have that taste that good. 😁
