Hawaiian Toyota Tacoma Built to Tackle Paradise

By -

If you’re lucky enough to live in paradise, why not have a Toyota built to handle its incredibly diverse terrain?

There are, of course, nearly endless trails to explore across this great country of ours. But if we had the choice of taking our Toyota pickups anywhere, we’d wager that Hawaii might just be near the top of the list. After all, who the heck wouldn’t want to navigate what might be the most gorgeous terrain on earth? Mountain trails, rainforests, beaches, you name it. This is a place that has pretty much everything you could want in one place.

In this video from Offroad Addiction TV, we see a lucky guy named Trey who actually gets to live that very dream on a daily basis. Needless to say, his Toyota looks more than ready to tackle any kind of trail Hawaii has to throw at it. The truck features a three-link suspension up front and four-link out back, with Yukon gears at both ends.

The whole thing is wrapped up in a custom Exo cage for maximum protection, and rolls on 17″ Raceline wheels. The Toyota was essentially already done when Trey bought it. But as he explains, he has made a few select changes over his two years of ownership. “I made a couple changes with the tires, painted it, changed out the gears, kind of redid the steering.”

The result of all that work is a rig that has no trouble navigating any kind of terrain. And when you live in a place as amazing as Hawaii, that’s not only necessary. It’s also one fantastic way to explore one of the most beautiful places on this earth!
