5 Epic Lifted Voodoo Blue 3rd Gen Toyota Tacoma Builds: Check Out These Rad Trucks for Inspiration for Your Off-Road & Overland Rig

This Weeks Topic: Voodoo Blue Tacomas

Welcome back to another Taco Tuesday! We have some bold blue rigs on display this week. Check out this awesome lineup of Voodoo Blue Tacomas from our amazing off-road community.

Voodoo Blue was originally introduced on the Toyota FJ Cruiser in 2007. It was then reintroduced on the Scion XB in 2011. Eight years had passed and the color was brought back in 2019 as part of TRD Pro lineup. In fact, it was the exclusive color for the TRD Pro models that year. Since then, the color has been offered on select Tacoma and Tundra models up through 2021. Voodoo Blue is a color that really pops in the sun and still makes a statement at dusk. It truly is a killer color.

As a recent owner of a Voodoo Blue Tacoma, I really enjoyed doing this for Taco Tuesday. In fact, you’ll see mine below (#4). I also have a Cavalry Blue 4Runner TRD Pro. So, you can say I’m a fan of the blues! These two blue colors are polar opposites in my driveway. The Cavalry Blue is a bit tamer and even looks grey in overcast light. The Voodoo just screams “HI GUYS I’M RIGHT HERE!” – both day and night.

I’ll tell you what, Toyota really knows how to make a blue. They have so many awesome blues in their current and previous lineups. Enjoy guys.

I love how the 6″ lift looks with the tire and wheel combo specs that I picked out for the truck.

I think that it’s a perfect setup whenever we go camping for a night up at Peacock Flats or just a quick day trip with friends and family.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR SETUP?

The reliability of the vehicle is hard to not love. The truck goes everywhere I ask it to go and I could not be happier with it.

My girlfriend and our two dogs fit perfectly in the truck as well. Having the camper has been a huge game-changer too. It has made the campsite so much easier to tear down and set up. We are blessed to be able to explore as much as we do.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR SETUP?

You don’t need a crazy suspension or a crazy lift to have fun! I’m on the limit with those 37s, and I know my limits!

But as it is, it’s so capable sometimes it impresses me.

Lifted Long Bed Voodoo Blue 3rd Gen Tacoma with Bronze VTX Wheels

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR SETUP?

I am still very new to the Tacoma platform, but I will say, this truck is pretty rad.

The OME BP-51 kit is so smooth; a night and day difference over the Bilstein kit that Toyota provides for the TRD Off-Road. The Nitto Ridge Grapplers are super quiet for a hybrid tire. Lastly, I love the bronze on the VTX wheels and how they pop against the Voodoo Blue paint.

The truck is ready to go overlanding or go on a trail! I like the low-profile rooftop tent.

I like the ease of overlanding on this setup. I like that I can daily this setup and it’s not overdone.

Final Thoughts

I must admit, I have truly fallen for Voodoo Blue. Personally, I think it looks best on the Tundra, but these last few months of Voodoo Tacoma ownership have been so awesome. The truck really does turn some heads! I love it.

Each week we’ll be choosing a different topic. Some weeks, Taco Tuesday will be very generic and some we dive deep into items like Top 5 Tacoma Mods. Regardless, everyone with a Tacoma can submit their truck to be featured here on Trail Tacoma.

If you want to be featured for Taco Tuesday on 2/8/22, submit your build through TrailTacoma.com/Feature. Next week’s Taco Tuesday will cover Rock Sliders. 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!
