So I recently purchased (May 6th, 2018) a Tacoma and absolutely love it. Well worth the money to upgrade from my previous vehicle. Since planning on getting a Tacoma about a year ago there have been many mods I have debated and wanted and here is what I have done so far. I've been a fan of Tacoma3G but now I am a contributor that owns a taco! This truck is my daily driver, I do a lot of camping, fishing, hunting and just getting out far from the city in this truck.

If there are any members in the Portland, Oregon area feel free to reach out, would love to meet some of you guys and see your rigs. Feel free to contact me on here or instagram if you have questions or are local enough for a meet up.

Thanks!!!

Welcome to the forum! Your rig looks sweet as hell, you definitely didn’t waste time digging into it. There are many members from the PNW and you can get with them in our regional section.

Thank you Grandmaster! I have many more things to do with the taco. I have found the Northwest section and going to try and make some friends

You know what? You just made me realize I need to change grandmaster to one word. That’s embarrassing, lol.

Took a few days to head out and hunt a few turkeys in the mountains. The taco in its preferred environment.

Hey man go for it! I took ideas off a lot of the Tacoma's I have seen over time so be my guest and ask any questions you would like! Made sure to follow that build progress of yours as well.

Little update since I’m trying to be better at documenting this build. I received my sliders, tailgate reinforcement and best of all the OME BP51s kit. Will be painting the sliders myself when I get the time but first thing to do is get this suspension installed! Oh and a pic of the truck in current form, just sold the step rails and CVT rooftop tent as well.
