While an engine swap is in the Baja Taco's future, for now, it still has the trusted 2.4 L Toyota I-4, OE Toyota five-speed transmission, and Toyota transfer case, together with a Marlin Crawler TacoBox. The TacoBox is a 2.28:1 HiLux low-range equipment decrease box installed in between the transmission as well as transfer case. Marlin was the leader and developer for Toyota low-gear reduction systems. His components don't fail, including significant integrity as well as adaptability to the Baja Taco.

The Tacoma IFS front pumpkin has 5.29 equipments and an ARB Air Storage Locker. The OE Tacoma rearend has 5.29 gears as well as an ARB Air Locker, as well.

For the front suspension, Jon selected Complete Mayhem Fabrication's long-travel front upper and lower 4130 chromoly A-arms with UniBall that replaces the upper sphere joint for maximum wheel travel. Fox coilovers with Eibach coils and also Fox bypass shocks function well handling the Baja Taco's enhanced weight. In back, All-Pro's outstanding 3-inch Expedition leaf springs are damped by Walker Evans 2.5 storage tank shocks. This suspension enables 35x12.50 R17LT BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires installed on Pedestrian Evans 17x8 beadlock wheels to be run with not a problem.

What total the Baja Taco are the All-Pro bumpers, racks, and also shield. An All-Pro front winch mount bumper quickly carries a Warn XD8000i winch. All-Pro 80-inch rock sliders with their trademark "kickout" design keep rocks away. The All-Pro rear tube bumper twists around the back quarter-panels, so the complete vehicle is shielded. All-Pro Off Roadway's Packrat modular shelf system installs in the bed and also holds an ARB rooftop camping tent and also everything else Jon and also his household may require in the backcountry.

The Baja Taco's mixture of freight lugging ability, rock creeping armor, as well as suspension make it an unique vehicle. Stripped of its Pack Rat system, it could crawl with the very best. With the Hoarder mounted, it allows comfortable backcountry discovering for as long as Jon intends to stay out.
