These modifications are what every owner should consider when starting the journey towards pickup perfection. Every change might not make sense for your build, but use this as a guide to start personalizing your truck.
One of the easiest ways to add some character to your Tacoma is by changing up the factory badging. You can choose from OEM black badge kits or aftermarket options.
Our favorite choice is both affordable and easy to install. Toyota Blackout Overlays restyle your truck while protecting your factory emblems. They come in black but are also paintable, making them perfect for themed builds like our bronze Tundra.
Blackout overlays are perfectly molded to lay on top of your factory emblems. They are a perfect DIY project and are half the cost of most OEM full emblem replacement solutions.
Get rid of that nose-down look of your stock Tacoma with this simple modification.
A leveling kit raises the front end of your truck to be level with the rear. It removes the factory rake built into the Tacoma and gives you a custom stance.
You’ll also gain the ability to increase your tire size a few notches. If you have a specific tire size you’re trying to accommodate contact us to find out if a leveling kit is right for you.
Unless you picked up the TRD Pro, the stock tires on your Tacoma are pretty underwhelming. Sure they’ll get you where you need to go, but they won’t do much else.
Our go-to upgrade is the Nitto Ridge Grappler tire. It’s a fan favorite that we use on many of our wheel packages, including this one for the Tacoma.
The tire has a deep tread pattern that provides excellent off-road performance. They also have a different sidewall pattern on each side of the tire, allowing you to choose the design you like best.
Tire upgrades aren’t reserved for just the off road enthusiast either. All terrain tires give your truck that custom appearance you’re looking for even if you never leave the pavement.
The privacy glass of your rear window is much darker than the other windows. Toyota (and every other automaker) does this to abide by the strictest state regulations.
If you want privacy and protection from the sun on all your windows you need to have them tinted. We use 5%, 20%, and 35% tint films depending on the window and customer. The lower the number, the darker it is.
We always recommend a professional installation for this modification. A poor quality job will bubble and discolor over time. Make sure your window tint installer has a good warranty to protect your investment.
Truck Bed Cover
Adding a tonneau cover that allows for full-bed access is a game-changer for every truck owner.
Our favorite bed cover is the Ultra Flex Tonneau Cover by UnderCover. It gives you the security of a hard locking cover with the flexibility of a soft roll-up cover.
The multiple riding positions of the Ultra Flex allow you to drive with partial or full bed access. When fully closed you have complete weather protection for your cargo.
