Default Will's 2012 Tacoma

This will be the build Thread of my new trail rig I purchased a couple weeks ago!!!
-It's a 2012 Tacoma 4x4 DC TRD Off Road w/ just 200 miles on the clock (Certified Pre-Owned)!!!







My plans are to set this truck for Expeditions/Touring because I live in South East TX, and traveling anywhere to go off road is an expedition.

Looking forward to seeing your new truck progress.

LT is a waste of money, I'd never go LT again. For the money you pay and the travel you get, its not worth it. Save your money Will, you can invest in more mods with the money you would spend on LT.
