I’m Steven and I have a 2017 TRD Offroad 4x4 I purchased the truck May 22, 2017. I’ve always have driven Toyota’s my first truck was a 1994 toyota pick up 4x4 extended cab witch I still have. Then I had a 2011 Tacoma prerunner 2wd, sold it to my uncle and now I have my 3rd gen. So here is my build that will never end!
