1996 Toyota Tacoma

This was the perfect truck… or so it seemed on paper.  This Tacoma had the “poverty package” with a four-cylinder engine, manual transmission, bench seat, even crank windows.  I tried to turn it into my 4Runner with high end shocks and a camper shell, but at the end of the day it just wasn’t nearly as comfortable as the Tundra that I replaced it with.  The lack of horsepower, upright seating of the regular cab, and lack of cruise control made this Tacoma uncomfortable for long trips.  If I had it to do over, I would just leave the truck stock and use it around town for a parts runner.

Rolling Stock:

255/85R16 Cooper ST Maxx tires

Factory 4Runner wheels

Additional Modifications:

Line-X bed liner

ARE camper shell with LED lighting and Yakima rack

Custom rock sliders

Custom gas tank skidplate

Relentless aluminum front skidplate
