I will finally be picking up my Tacoma in early April. Been a member on here for a while looking at peoples builds and learning what I should do. I have a fair idea of what I want. But I will definitely need guidance in wiring. Here’s a picture of my truck.

I’m in the Eugene area so let me know of any trail runs, that’d be cool.

Yup, I chose the long bed cause I still want to be able to throw my bike in the bed or lumber or just slide my snowboard in as opposed to strapping it down

Finally just got the truck home at 1230 AM after having to go CarMax for the trade in. Got an extra 5G from CarMax over the dealer. Photos to come in the morning before and after I put on the TRD Pro grille. ??

Got a few things put on the truck these past couple days, just stuff to make it look like mine if you know what I mean. Ditch lights to come soon, along with fog light upgrades, and sliders. Any complaints with the Cali Raised fog lights?

So today was the trucks first time off pavement. Bone stock as far as tires and suspension, etc. My dads 2018 F250 FX4 tagged along as we weren’t planning on getting into anything to ridiculous.

Also I did I great job of having an off-roading gear list that I decided to leave behind, eh I’ll be good with tow straps and shackles ( again didn’t plan on doing anything too serious )???. Well we really only found two trails that were available for trucks due to closures for logging.

So we journey in about 10 miles on unmaintained dirt roads ( decent fun for a day trip and casual cruising ). We finally arrive at trail #3, it has two segments, moderate to start and easy to finish and then it would drop us back at the trail head after finishing on another dirt road. We start down the trail, not too bad. Then here comes the first obstacle. A Jeep with 35s would do great. There was two options; giant sharp edge boulders that would destroy the truck or navigate the long bed truck around this tight turn that was completely mud with a couple thicker banks. Long story short I slam my RR fender and bumper into the embankment ( luckily mostly mud so no damage). Then I get completely bogged down in the mud with absolutely no traction. Finally after 2 hours and careful maneuvers and many fallen tree branches we cleared it. At this point I ran the .5 mile trail to check if it was worse, and it was. So we ended up deciding to flip it around and go back out. At this point I hear air coming from the LR and discover a nail. I have work tmw and I really don’t want to leave my truck there. Eventually decided to just grab the ford and pull the truck out and quickly head home. So definitely a fun experience but not doable in a stock truck. But if you’re looking for a day trip and nice decent off road cruise, you can just stick to the main routes.

Also thanks to my dad and brother who were staking logs under the tires.

Summary:
Id do it again with a lift, sliders, and skid panels, winch, and better tires. So it’s time for upgrades

I have the CaliRaisedLED CaliRaisedLED fogs in amber. I dig them so far they put out a good color and increase visibility. The ditch lights are great too!

I’m probably going with Cali Raised pods with side shooters. For the fogs, I’m debating the amber pods or the higher wattage white pods and then putting a yellow film on them

So today I was finally able to get the recall done on the truck after being given the run around by another dealer. Went home and decided to play with the truck and get the CB radio and fuse panel for my lights put in. Ohhh boy did I open a whole can of worms.

I knew I wanted power in the bed of my truck besides the outlet and wanted power to the back back seats without consistently using a 12V extension cord. So long story short I decided to run wiring underneath the truck and in between the bed and the cab. And then through cab vent split into the bed where I’ll install 2 12V outlets

This probably got stressful but it’s fun to push the limits of your truck while it is still stock. Obviously you don’t want to break anything or be in a particularly sticky situation, but hey. I did a lot of this when mine was stock and I always learned from it.

Mostly learned how to spend all the money.
