I’m Jamie and I have a 2016 TRD Offroad 4x4 I have had the truck almost 2 years so I’m going to try to recreate my build thread from another forum for you all to read. I bought my truck July 24, 2016 from Riverview Toyota here in Arizona. Here it is the night I bought it. It’s a basic trd version without premium or tech, only options I added were the tow package. Here it is the day I bought it.

So before I bought this truck I was trading in vehicles left and right. I traded in a 2015 Subaru WRX Premium for my tacoma here it is after the dealer drove it.

I traded it in as stock as I could I took everything off it. Prior to that I owned a 2015 Tundra Double cab, it was an okay truck but I got the wrong one and I hated it.

Now I’m not new to Tacoma’s I also had a 2013 prerunner(which was a mistake to buy since I got into off-roading and camping so I hated the
2wd) I traded that in for a 2014 Trd Offroad 4x4 which was eventually traded for the tundra. Here’s a picture of that truck.

And here’s a currentish picture of my truck.

Speaking of Tacoma’s look at this one I saw by house yesterday.
6163A06A-D6BB-4E13-ADAF-0348E74E5157.jpeg

Still SOA. More stickers, and a rear bumper.
They should just give it back to me so I can give her the life she deserves.
Although I've heard they beat on her pretty hard
