While an engine swap is in the Baja Taco's future, in the meantime, it still has the trustworthy 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 equipment reduction box set up in between the transmission as well as transfer case. Marlin was the pioneer and designer for Toyota low-gear reduction systems. His parts do not fail, including significant integrity and also convenience 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 Storage locker, also.

For the front suspension, Jon picked Total Disorder Manufacture's long-travel front upper and also reduced 4130 chromoly A-arms with UniBall that changes the top round joint for optimum wheel traveling. Fox coilovers with Eibach coils and also Fox bypass shocks function well taking care of the Baja Taco's raised weight. In back, All-Pro's exceptional 3-inch Expedition leaf springtimes are damped by Walker Evans 2.5 storage tank shocks. This suspension permits 35x12.50 R17LT BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires placed on Pedestrian Evans 17x8 beadlock wheels to be kept up not a problem.

What complete the Baja Taco are the All-Pro bumpers, racks, and shield. An All-Pro front winch place bumper quickly lugs a Warn XD8000i winch. All-Pro 80-inch rock sliders with their signature "kickout" layout maintain rocks at bay. The All-Pro rear tube bumper twists around the rear quarter-panels, so the complete vehicle is shielded. All-Pro Off Roadway's Pack Rat modular rack system mounts in the bed as well as holds an ARB roof outdoor tents and every little thing else Jon and also his family could need in the backcountry.

The Baja Taco's blend of cargo bring ability, rock creeping armor, as well as suspension make it an unique vehicle. Removed of its Pack Rat system, it could crawl with the very best. With the Packrat set up, it enables comfortable backcountry discovering for as long as Jon wishes to avoid.
