My first truck a 2018 trd offroad. I've had it for almost 3 months and still haven't hit 1000 miles. I've taken it on two camping trips and mostly just stare at it in my garage. I got a lot planned but this is gonna have to be a super buget build.
Dang, 3 months and hardly driving it?! Regardless, welcome to the site.

The Ginger build is coming along this weekend with a couple new features for the budget build. with the help of you guys I was able to paint the dash trim with that paprika, frost pearl, and clear matte paint. It came out perfectly and I'm super stoked about it. Also my caliraised ditch lights came in and was able to mount those. They will get some good use when I head to the mountains at the end of this month.

The dash looks like it really did come out well.

Been a long time since I posted anything but the truck is coming together nicely. bay area metal fabrication rack with tepui ayer tent, just got the rotopax and maxtrax last weekend. sitting in my garage and schedule for installation this week are my bilstein 6112s up front, 5160s in the rear with heavy dakar leaf springs to support that tent weight and total chaos uca and 285-75-16 falken at3s.
I'll have more pics and another update after next weekend and a trip down the 395 outside of bishop CA to put the new suspension to the test.

New suspension put on so a trip was in order. 6112s in front, 5160s in rear with heavy dakar. made the trip to coyote flats right outside of bishop. new leaf springs handled the weight even better then I anticipated.

took almost 4 hours from the trail head to the camp site but it was totally worth it. the stock tires did outstanding. had them aired down to 18 psi with no issues.
