Stage 3 Motorsports 2018 Toyota Tacoma SR 3.5L V6 Project Truck
It's a known law of nature that the Toyota Tacomas make an excellent platform for all sort of aggressive truck builds. Thus, we here at Stage 3 Motorsports decided to try our hands at crafting an awesome Tacoma that was just at home on pavement as it is out in the dirt -- and we're bringing you all along for the ride. Our 2018 Tacoma SR started its existence as a very bare-ones double cab truck with 4WD and a 3.5L V6 under the hood. Once we're through, it'll become a full-fledged adventure truck that can handle jaunts out into the wilderness while still being easy to live with around town.
Grabbing a fairly base model Tacoma means that we're definitely lacking on some of the creature comfort and utility mods that we're used to. To help make our tough Tacoma truck easier to live with, we grabbed floor mats, a tonneau cover, a bed mat, and even some skid plates for additional protection. MORE INFO ON OUR ACCESSORIES
A truck that's destined for off-road adventure needs a suspension and set of tires that can handle it To that end, we installed new struts that also added more clearance for big tires, as well as new rear shocks to control the notably bouncy rear end. MORE INFO ON OUR SUSPENSION, WHEELS, & TIRES
