Extreme Terrain’s Customer Builds Series Spotlights A Fan’s Toyota Tacoma Build: Sponsored

Check out some of the mods on display here!

American Trucks brings us the Extreme Terrain Customer’s Builds series with a Tacoma!

Extreme Terrain (XT) brings us another episode of their Customer Builds series. We get to go deep with the upgrades applied to this Toyota Tacoma. In the past we’ve featured other videos for full-size trucks, but this is the first for the Tacoma. Also, this is a different format where XT interviews the one who did the project.

Many of the items the customer added to his truck are available on Extreme Terrain’s site. This includes the Injen cold air intake, with dry filter that looks almost stock. There’s the Barricade Bull bar, Smittybilt side-steps and the Flowmaster Flow XT dual exhaust system as well. There are many other mods, but I wanted to spotlight the headlights.

There are lots of accessories available for this truck

Check out the NOVA-series headlights on Sylvania’s website.

The owner added NOVA-series LED projector headlights to his Tacoma. He states that it provides better light than the stock system, it changes the whole look of the front end. On top of that, they are a fairly easy-to-do installation.

In this episode of Customer’s Builds, XT host, Sara Riodan, interviews Timothy, the former owner of an older Tacoma SR5. Sadly, that truck was totalled in an accident, so he bought a 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport. Since then, he’s used the ExtremeTerrain website to configure and augment his truck. Some of these accessories are fairly easy to put on. But others (like the exhaust) may be easier for a certified mechanic to deal with.

During the interview, he not only shares the details about the parts he purchased, he talks about how they are used. It’s an interesting bit of insight, and all of it boils down to an easy to used website, combined with some creativity.

One final note.. Sure, the Tacoma usually looks quite nice on its own, and I dig the fact that he opted for the 4×4 package, but I would spec it with different tires, at the very least.
