Toyota Prepares A Heavily-Upgraded Tacoma Overlander For SEMA 2020

Nov 9, 2020

Category: Rides

The last few generations of Toyota’s Tacoma have served as ideal platforms for over-road and/or overland conversions, with the mid-sized high-performance pickups offering the perfect amalgamation of durability, reliability, performance, and power. And in preparation for the forthcoming 2020 SEMA Show, the Japanese automotive marque has joined forces with the off-road adventure gurus from 4WD Toyota Owner Magazine to deliver what the pair are appropriately calling a “Go Anywhere Lifestyle Rig.”

Designed by the magazine’s editor, Ryan O’Connell and fabricated by ShmellFab, the build boasts dozens of upgrades including ToyTec BOSS Aluma 2.5 Series coil-overs, aluminum skid-plates fore and aft, DOM steel tube rock sliders, MaxTrax MKII traction boards, Camburg Engineering upper control arms, CBI Offroad Fabrication aluminum bumpers, a winch, a PowerTank PT10 on-board air, a four-gallon Rotopax fuel storage container, a two-gallon Rotopax water storage container, a Hi-Lift jack, aluminum cab rack equipped with a 40” light bar, numerous auxiliary LEDs, 16” matte black from Method Race 704 Trail Series wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires, a Truck Covers USA locking cargo bed cover and rack system, and a Yakima SkyLine bed rack and SkyRise cargo bed tent. A Magnuson roots-type TVS1900 supercharger also enables the Tacoma to generate 370hp and 330ft-lbs of torque.
