How to outfit your Toyota truck for absolutely anythingJan 17th, 2018
Tailor the Tundra or Tacoma for your life.
One of the great things about pickup trucks is that they can do pretty much anything well: sure, they can haul immense quantities of gear, tow large trailers and go where many crossovers wouldn’t dare, but they can also be tuned to do many more things. For example, with a few parts from Toyota’s TRD (Toyota Racing Development) division, your Tacoma or Tundra can be ridiculously fast, look amazing, transform into a rolling workshop, go absolutely anywhere, or all of the above…Just like Marty McFly.
For the Speed Demon
Road performance might not be the main feature of the Tundra and the Tacoma, but if you want to extract more speed out of your pickup truck, TRD will be happy to help. Adding a supercharger, an exhaust system, a cold-air intake and/or a limited-slip differential to your truck can significantly improve your truck’s performance. If you frequently tow heavy loads, these additions can also help you climb steep hills. (And for added safety, a set of large brakes will help you slow down.)
For the Off-Road Warrior
What if you want to use your truck to go where nobody has gone before? With the right set of parts, you can easily do so. Check out TRD’s selection of lift kits, longer-travel suspension, and custom wheels—so you can properly fit those knobby tires in the wheel arches—which are all designed to fit your truck perfectly. This will ensure high-quality construction, perfect fit, and test-proven reliability, all of which is useful when you plan on getting off the beaten trail and far away from the nearest Toyota dealership.
For the Show Off
Let’s face it, for most truck owners, their vehicles are more than a simple way to get them and their gear from A to B. Their trucks are an extension of themselves, and they want to make them as unique as they are. Apart from the aforementioned speed and off-road parts, TRD offers many styling additions that can give your Tacoma or Tundra a personal touch. Things like oil caps, radiator caps, and shifter knobs can really set your trucks apart. Add to that a large selection of wheels, and TRD has everything to turn a Toyota into YOUR Toyota.
