2018 Cement Off-Road Double Cab, Long Bed Automatic
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

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

Glamping in Pismo: CVT MT Shast 2+ and Awning set up

Expedition Essentials Propane Bottle Mount
Ultimate MX Hauler (any other high clearance dirtbike hitch mounts?)

Armor:

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

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!
