Thanks for checking out our build!!

Please Check out our Instagram page @taco_nobodys as well as we expect big things in 2020!!

The truck was purchased in early 2017 with 1 mile on it. We bought it with the intention to build it as an overlander. We don't really do or plan to do crazy crawling or high speed desert stuff. The plan is, and always has been to make the truck more capable then we'll need to go just about anywhere in comfort so we can explore cool stuff safely. We were getting tired of traveling and camping out of smaller VW's and Audis. Due to the VW Dieselgate settlement, we made out pretty well and decided to invest in something more suitable to our travel and daily needs.


I think when my wife and I bought the truck with the intention of using it as a means to get out and explore a bit more we didn't think it would get this crazy, this fast. At this point we are elbows deep with even more planned and we figured I should make a thread where people can see the things we did, as well as document for ourselves. I'll try and keep it updated obviously but feel free to send a message if you have a question about something specific.

Truck info: 2017 TRD OR 4x4 AT DCLB
