I'm Nick. Awake by day, sleeping by night. Detailing is the side-hustle. OEF - Sapper shit. Bought a ‘20 Pro: Has rubber tires and everything. I mod it. I live beyond my means so don’t expect anything crazy.

Did this
Paired my phone - major accomplishment.​
Feynlab ceramic coated every square inch.
Hydrophobic as fuck.​
Injen Evo CAI because I’m boujee and I like the sound.​
RIPP Coil Packs. Helps me troll the tuners.​
Oil separator because blow by can blow me.​
Hella Sharptones. The kids think they're turbos.​
VLEDS vanity lights and license plate bulbs
to blind my wife and help the cops.​
Tint. Illegal. Still not dark enough.​
Raptor lights that serve absolutely no purpose whatsoever.​
Stedi light bar & ditch lights that I don't need and use inappropriately.​
Overland Equipped aux power tray that at least
makes it look like I know what I'm doing.​
Meso/KC 3rd brake light to flex on other Tacoma owners.​
KTJO door cup lights. Basically makes my Taco a Maserati.​
CBI overland bars to carry the RTT I don’t have.​
Relentless Fab corner tie-down brackets.
Makes it easier to strap down all the pussy my truck gets me.​
Prinsu cabrack. Platform to give me clout on platforms.​
Tailgate anti-theft bracket because of high-seas piracy.​
Multicam black vinyl in allllll the right places.​
Lil B’s bed stiffeners: Bed’s not the only thing they make stiff.​
Mountain Hatch as proof that I'm the best overlander on the planet.​
Spidertrax spacers. Gets everyone’s panties in a twist.​
Interior trim hydrodipped multicam black.
Makes people believe I killed Bin Laden.​
Meso & AJT swag. Chrome go home. Light be bright.​
Victory4x4 console molle panels because I think I’m John Wick.​
Desert Does It seat jackers & MMP's: Neat seat feet.​
Mountain bike shifter grip because I can’t leave anything alone.​
Expedition Essentials 3TPAM. Fucking right you're jealous.​
OEM bed mat. Only thing sliding around here is bitches into my DM’s.​
Carista tricks. I'm from the fucking future.​
S-Mode invert harness because I think I'm Louis Hamilton.​

Will do this
More Meso mods that I don't need but must have.​
Big heavy wheels and fat rubber tires
that will destroy my fuel mileage and require a re-gear.​
RTT to look cool parked outside of a Marriott.​
Boost. Even though my mom says I can’t handle the V6.​
More expensive overland gear to never use.​
More cute exterior glitter. For Instagram followers.​
Rock sliders. Not to slide on rocks - to get into truck comfy.​
Fancy bumpers with fancy attachments to do fancy things in fancy places.​
More bright fancy lights to shine into the eyes of oncoming traffic.​
Sick suspension shit to completely negate the purchase of a Pro.​
More things that should have come factory but don't
because Toyota wont stop hiring lame-dick engineers.​
Finally finish the build to my exact specifications
and then sell it because fuck me right.​

Overland Load-out

CVT Awning. Keeps my dick in the shade.​
36" Gerber Axe. Splits wood and legs.​
SOG Tomahawk because I'm tacti-cool.​
Woobie and E-Tool. Both stolen from my TA50.​
Krazy Beaver. Do you even overland bro?​
Pelican V730: Gun case for my gadgets.​
ARB Tred Pro to tred like a pro in my TRD Pro.​
Jetboil Basecamp. Cookin' up crack in the woods.​


Proof that I'm a stud and the truck is grey:

Hey dude, welcome to the forum! Sorry I'm late to say it; I've been busy with my truck and driving 600 miles to pick up a camper that never got delivered. Anyway, I wanted to make sure I got in this thread to let you know that I appreciate the well written content you've been posting around the forum. I notice that type of stuff and I always get all warm and fuzzy when I see new members throwing it down like that.

Congrats on your truck and not the Raptor. I like your decision in mods so far. The little details like your mods make the stock truck 100x better than some of the questionable decisions Toyota made (as far as aesthetics). I see you listed twins on your upcoming mod list. :cool:

Thanks mate! Sucks about the camper, I'd be livid.
Thanks for the recognition! I appreciate a well designed forum with a cool positive culture and am happy to contribute in any way I can!

Yeah twins will happen lol. My biggest gripe with the Taco has always been its gutless powertrain. As soon as OV has that kit rocking and rolling I'll be pulling the trigger on it (assuming this coronavirus doesn't send us barreling into a gnarly recession). I figured the displacement of the Raptor and the Taco are both 3.5L, so if I twin the Taco then it truly will be a "mini" Raptor (and better). Turbo's on the Raptor aren't much larger than a US Quarter, and IIRC OV's turbo kit will have Turbos larger than that ?.

Gasshole arrived! May have another one coming if someone wants it. Just shoot me a PM.

Sorry for dirty truck, it’s been raining and snowing so I had fun in a puddle in my backyard

How do you like that Molle rack you got on the interior center console area? Was thinking of picking one up myself.

Probably my favorite mod thus far. I use it for everything. Build quality is outstanding, powder coating is flawless and it’s attractive to boot. Highly recommended. Just hoping Victory4x4 develops something similar for the back of the center console!

Very nice. Will probably look to pick one up for myself. I need to find somewhere to attach a trash bin for all my kid’s trash. Hahaha

They come as a pair for both sides of the console and installation is wicked easy. Literally just screw them in and you’re done. Took me 3 min
