Hey everyone,

New to Tacoma 3G and truck builds in general. I am a fireman out of San Luis Obispo County which keeps me pretty busy but recently picked up a Tacoma and stoked to get it set up for some off duty exploring. I am a bit of an "all arounder" when it comes to sports/activities so I am trying to get the truck set up to facilitate just about anything I get myself into. Looking forward to seeing all of your posts for future upgrades and any suggestions anyone has. Here his my build so far:

2018 Tacoma TRD Offroad DC/LB-Cement

Current MODS:

Sport hood
TRD Pro Grille
Pro Comp 3" lift
TRD 17" rims
285-70-17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers
Prinsu Cab Rack
Leitner Designs Active Cargo Rack
CVT MT Shasta 2+
CVT Awning

Day 1: Tires/Rims/Lift/Hood/Grille from the dealer
IMG_7308[1].JPG


Few Months in: Prinsu Cab Rack and Leitner Designs Rack Installed

Glamping in Pismo: CVT MT Shast 2+ and Awning set up
IMG_8483[1].JPG


Shaver Lake Trip: Rig dialed in with Husky Job Boxes and Wilderness Systems Radar Kayak
IMG_8839[1].JPG


First 4x4 test at Brewer Lake: (I need skid plates!!!)
IMG_8871[1].JPG


In My Dreams MODS:

Bed:

ARE CX HD Camper Shell (Will be selling my Leitner Bed Rack)
Prinsu Camper Rack
Topper EZ Lift (anyone know if this works with Decked?)
Decked bed storage (any opinions on Truck Vault?)
Cargo Glide
Road Shower 7 gal
Expedition Essentials/ARB air compressor bed mount
Expedition Essentials Exo Table
Expedition Essentials Propane Bottle Mount
Ultimate MX Hauler (any other high clearance dirtbike hitch mounts?)

Armor:

C4 Low Pro Front Bumper w/ winch and light bar
C4 Rear Bumper w swing out and table (do they still do BSM and back up sensor?)
C4 Rock Sliders
RCI skid plates

Suspension:

ICON (suggestions for what stage? bed weight will be an issue)

Electronics/Lights

Genesis Off-Road Dual Battery Kit
SDHQ Switch Pro/Bracket Kit
Winch (Recommendations?)
ARB Elements Fridge
Solar Panel (Recommendations?)
Ditch Lights
Front Bumper 20" Light Bar
Front Bumper Fog Lights
Rear Bumper Back Up Lights

Motor/Exhaust:

AFE Mach Force Xp 3" exhuast

Probably left a lot out. Going to be a slow process as I tend to spend my $$ on other toys as well. Any recommendations or leads on products would be much appreciated. Thanks for taking a look!

@SLOTaco Yeah, DCLB in the house! I like your setup with the sport hood on the off-road modal. Did you pick that up from the deal after you bought the truck?

Thanks man. I had them swap the hood before I took it off the lot. Ha not proud of the $ I had to dish out to do it but I just love that look!
