Overlanding Through The Mall Parking Lot

Hey everyone, been awhile…again…I’m glad to be back to show off something different than what I’m use to. This is my girlfriend’s newly modded 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD-Sport 4×4 overlanding hotness. She’s been wanting to do something on her Tacoma for awhile and with the start of her employment at Gatto’s Tires Service she got some great discounts on some parts.

After much research and putting what her wants and needs are she settled on Rough Country 4 inch lift. We had to comb through hundreds of threads on forums on people’s opinion on them. It’s more of a mixed bag on people’s reaction, it was hard to figure out from people who do off-roading every weekend that needs a better setup to the person that just wants the tougher look of a lifted truck without breaking the bank. This setup from Rough Country works for what she needs.

With that done we looked to wheels and it was pretty easy. She went with Rotiform SIX-OR wheels 17×9 in matte black. We were looking at a set of wheels from Stealth Custom but they only release wheels every 3-4 months and they go out fast! So we’ll pick up a set later down the road but these Rotiform’s are amazing looking on trucks.

For tires she ended up with Toyo Tires Open Country M/T in 33s, such an aggressive look and surprisingly not loud on the road. No rubbing, but if we decide to go 35’s we’ll need to do the cab mount chop, but for right now it looks amazing.

Till this past Sunday when we were cleaning out the garage I saw the roof box and decided to see how it will look on the Taco. The girlfriend was not pleased with my suggestion but I as soon as I was done mounting it to the roof, the clouds parted and a ray of golden sunshine came from the heavens and it looks overlandmazing! Enjoy the pictures everyone and I hope you like the new truck to our growing stable.
