7 Cement Gray Toyota Tacoma Builds: A Featured Truck Compilation to Inspire Your Overland & Off-Road Rig

Taco Tuesday is HERE!! I am so pumped to bring weekly features here to Trail Tacoma. Every single Tuesday, we will feature a handful of submitted builds based on a specific topic.

Each week, we will be choosing a different topic. Some weeks it will be very generic like Cavalry Blue Tacomas and other weeks, we will get more specific like Suspension Setups. Regardless, everyone with a Tacoma can submit their truck to be featured here on Trail Tacoma. Just click this link!

If you want a better idea of what we are aiming for, check out all of our Feature Friday posts on Trail4R.com. We are featuring 4Runners weekly over there as well! We hope you all enjoy this series as much as we will.

This Week’s Topic: Cement Grey Tacoma Builds

This week, you’ll find seven different and unique cement-colored Tacomas that will undoubtedly inspire those on the overland build journey.

    Q&A – What Do You Like Best About Your Setup?

    Everything to be brutally honest. This rig has the look I’ve been building and looking for from the start, and it functions on the trail, asphalt, or the sand.

    The lighting and electrical mods allow me to have easy access to all my lights while I’m out to not only see through the dirt but also the sand.

    The suspension handles like an absolute DREAM and takes any imperfections on the dirt trail or the asphalt.

    The wheels have the nice rigid, yet, sophisticated look I wanted, and the tires grip amazing on hills, rocks, and mud.

    The performance mods make the truck absolutely RIP and sound amazing. However, without the body mods, like the rock sliders and skid plate, my undercarriage would look like a honey badger attacked it haha. This build comes together and gives style and functionality all in one and I’m proud to be the owner of it.

    Q&A – What Do You Like Best About Your Setup?

    The things I like most about my setup are the lighting setup and my RTT! I love how the ditch lights give me the perfect wide-angle that I need upfront and the chase bar gives me optimal lighting in the rear especially on super dusty trails.

    I haven’t gotten a chance to actually use the RTT, but I have set it up and I am extremely excited to finally use it when I take my brothers on a camping trip this spring!

        Q&A – What Do You Like Best About Your Setup?

        I believe this is my perfect setup for the weekend warrior! It screams office cubicle Mon-Fri and dirt bagging on the weekend. Being that it’s my daily driver I wanted as close to a stock ride as possible and I’m pretty sure the 2” Eibach Stage 1 Lift Kit achieves that goal.

        Living in Las Vegas, we rarely get rain but when we do, the roads turn ugly. The 33” Wildpeaks AT3Ws give me that extra confidence knowing they will stay on the ground. Not to mention it makes the truck stance look better.

        Night riding in the desert requires all the lumens and with my collection of Bajas, I have no problem lighting up the night. The build is always in progress with backorders and cash shortage, lol. Stay tuned for what comes next.. sliders, suspension upgrade, rear bumper… it never ends.

                  With a new year, comes new mods. KINGS OR BUST.

                    Q&A – What Do You Like Best About Your Setup?

                    My setup was built to be as comfy as possible in the streets and also capable to handle most trails. As for what I like the most from my truck, it would probably be the color combo. I didn’t think illusion cherry would go so well with cement, but it ended up looking much better than I would have ever imagined. I think the wheels are what get the most compliments on this build.

                    Q&A – What Do You Like Best About Your Setup?

                    The onboard air setup is the part of my build I probably like and use the most. Never needing to pop the hood and being able to easily access that quick connection in the bed has saved me countless hours. Super proud to have designed and built it myself.

                    A close second would be the wheel/tire/suspension setup. After 2 years of making a lot of tweaks, it’s finally exactly where I need it to be as a daily driver and Overlanding.

                    Final Thoughts

                    Well? How did you all like our FIRST Taco Tuesday? Like I said in the intro, every single Tuesday we will feature a handful of rigs and a specific topic to be showcased on those trucks. So, if you missed out this week, that’s totally cool! Just keep your eyes on our Instagram to know what the topic is for the following week to submit your build.

                    If you want to be featured for Taco Tuesday on 12/14, submit your build through TrailTacoma.com/Feature. Next week’s Taco Tuesday will cover Front Bumper Setups. We’re looking for awesome rigs to showcase. If this is you and you love your setup, send in your rig and details because we want to see it.

                    Thanks for reading guys, I’ll see you next week!
