1998 TOYOTA TACOMA XTRACAB - BAJA TACO
While an engine swap is in the Baja Taco's future, in the meantime, it still has the dependable 2.4 L Toyota I-4, OE Toyota five-speed transmission, and also Toyota transfer situation, in addition to a Marlin Spider TacoBox. The TacoBox is a 2.28:1 HiLux low-range gear reduction box mounted in between the transmission and transfer situation. Marlin was the leader and designer for Toyota low-gear reduction systems. His components don't fall short, adding significant dependability and flexibility to the Baja Taco.
The Tacoma IFS front pumpkin has 5.29 equipments and also an ARB Air Locker. The OE Tacoma rearend has 5.29 equipments as well as an ARB Air Locker, also.
For the front suspension, Jon picked Complete Mayhem Construction's long-travel front upper as well as lower 4130 chromoly A-arms with UniBall that changes the top ball joint for optimum wheel traveling. Fox coilovers with Eibach coils and also Fox bypass shocks function well managing the Baja Taco's boosted weight. In back, All-Pro's excellent 3-inch Exploration fallen leave springs perspire by Pedestrian Evans 2.5 storage tank shocks. This suspension permits 35x12.50 R17LT BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires mounted on Pedestrian Evans 17x8 beadlock wheels to be run with no worry.
What complete the Baja Taco are the All-Pro bumpers, racks, as well as armor. An All-Pro front winch mount bumper easily brings a Warn XD8000i winch. All-Pro 80-inch rock sliders with their trademark "kickout" layout keep rocks away. The All-Pro back tube bumper wraps around the rear quarter-panels, so the full truck is safeguarded. All-Pro Off Road's Packrat modular shelf system mounts in the bed and holds an ARB roof tent as well as every little thing else Jon and also his family could require in the backcountry.
The Baja Taco's blend of freight bring capacity, rock crawling shield, and also suspension make it a special truck. Removed of its Pack Rat system, it could abound the very best. With the Hoarder mounted, it allows comfy backcountry discovering for as long as Jon wants to avoid.
