Toyota Reveals the ‘Overland-Ready Tacoma’ Debuting at SEMA360

The online SEMA360 show is upon us and with it will come a slew of overland vehicle builds. One of the rigs getting the virtual red carpet treatment is one built by 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine and promoted by Toyota of America.

  • BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 255/85R16 tires mounted on 16×8-inch matte black 704 Trail Series from Method Race Wheels

  • CBI Offroad Fabrication T3 aluminum front bumper and T3 Swing Arm Series steel rear bumper with dual swing-outs

  • ComeUp SEAL Gen2 9.5rs winch

  • Aluminum CBI Offroad Fabrication Prinsu Cab Rack fitted with a 40-inch SR Pro LED series light bar
