2003 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab
1998 TOYOTA TACOMA XTRACAB - BAJA TACO
While an engine swap remains in the Baja Taco's future, for now, it still has the trustworthy 2.4 L Toyota I-4, OE Toyota five-speed transmission, as well as Toyota transfer case, in addition to a Marlin Crawler TacoBox. The TacoBox is a 2.28:1 HiLux low-range equipment reduction box installed between the transmission as well as transfer situation. Marlin was the pioneer as well as designer for Toyota low-gear decrease systems. His components don't stop working, including remarkable reliability as well as convenience to the Baja Taco.
The Tacoma IFS front pumpkin has 5.29 equipments and also an ARB Air Storage Locker. The OE Tacoma rearend has 5.29 gears and an ARB Air Locker, too.
For the front suspension, Jon picked Total Chaos Construction's long-travel front top as well as reduced 4130 chromoly A-arms with UniBall that changes the upper round joint for optimum wheel traveling. Fox coilovers with Eibach coils and also Fox bypass shocks function well managing the Baja Taco's raised weight. In back, All-Pro's outstanding 3-inch Expedition leaf springtimes perspire by Pedestrian Evans 2.5 reservoir shocks. This suspension permits 35x12.50 R17LT BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires placed on Pedestrian Evans 17x8 beadlock wheels to be kept up not a problem.
What full the Baja Taco are the All-Pro bumpers, shelfs, and shield. An All-Pro front winch install bumper conveniently lugs a Warn XD8000i winch. All-Pro 80-inch rock sliders with their signature "kickout" layout keep rocks away. The All-Pro rear tube bumper twists around the back quarter-panels, so the complete vehicle is safeguarded. All-Pro Off Road's Hoarder modular rack system places in the bed as well as holds an ARB roof tent as well as everything else Jon and his family could need in the backcountry.
The Baja Taco's combination of freight carrying capacity, rock creeping armor, as well as suspension make it a distinct truck. Stripped of its Hoarder system, it can crawl with the most effective. With the Packrat installed, it enables comfortable backcountry exploring for as long as Jon wishes to avoid.
