Really not building this one for lawn crawling. I would like to call it more of a Mall Crawler. I plan on using it for cross country trips. So, I guess i could get a ton of Mall crawling pictures between trail heads. I would like to use this rig to run many of the milder west coast destinations (nothing hardcore) while completing the wife and my own bucket list.

Should be a cool ride for camping on The Rubicon and the Dusy Ershim trail

Staying true to the name I came up with 2007 Tacoma composite bed assembly.

I believe I can cut it down and skin it.

I will post pictures as soon as I see how and if its going to work for what I need.

Are you talking about the interior of the taco beds? If so, that's cool. It's pretty durable.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Yes, the inside of the bed is a solid unit. Toyota just bolts metal skins to the out side of it.

Here is a picture of the bed and where the cut will need to be. It's going to be a lot of work, but not as much as building a complete floor.

Good idea, I will have to order a set. But, yes I can use the adjustable tie downs. The storage pockets will have to go away.

The more I think about it, the more I like this idea John. I'll run something by you next time we talk.

It's going to work. I have the tacos box cut down. I need to finish welding the driver bed side together and I can mock up the bed with both sides.
