When it comes to modifying Toyota Tacomas for off-road adventures, there’s nobody who knows better than our friend Mateo over at TacomaBeast. He recently walked through his awesome, overland-ready 3rd Gen Tacoma to share his top 5 favorite exterior mods for Tacomas. We enjoyed hearing some familiar product names in the list – and we agree that they’re the best available. Check it out for yourself!

CBI FRONT BUMPER | BAJA SERIES

This excellent front bumper offers a much improved approach angle clearance, room to mount a winch, and great protection for your lights and grill, and it can take a beating so you can confidently take any off-road trail or road less traveled.

CBI SKID PLATES

This great skid plate setup protects your truck’s guts from getting wrecked while you navigate off-road – and separate front/back pieces fit together seamlessly for the ultimate suit of armor.

CBI ROCK SLIDERS  | BOLT ON WITH KICKOUT

These slick rock sliders offer protection from obstacles that can bang up your rig, but they also add the function of a side-step that runs the full length of your vehicle.

CBI REAR BUMPER | DUAL SWING OUT

A high-clearance back bumper will help you avoid banging your tail on deep ditches and obstacles, plus the dual swing-outs add lots of storage, function, and space to your tail end.

CBI OVERLAND BED RACK

The Overland looks ultra-tough and provides a ton of added structure, enclosing the back to keep in gear while adding lots of mounting points and a spot for a tent (or more gear).

 

THE ORIGINAL PRINSU CAB RACK

The Prinsu Cab Roof Rack provides a strong, sleek location for mounting gear and accessories directly onto the roof – and it aligns with the bed rack to create a large, aerodynamic platform. 

If you’re looking to get started on your own truck build, Mateo encouraged beginning with the Rock Sliders, then adding skid plates, bumpers, and a bed rack as you begin using your truck more aggressively. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, how you outfit your vehicle is entirely up to you, and it all depends on how you plan to use it. The important part is that you get outside and find some adventures to tackle with a rig you’re proud of and confident in. We can’t wait to see you out there!
