RBS’s Radiant Red Tacoma Build

Red 2004 Tacoma XtraCab V6 4wd with both the TRD and SR5 packages – it was a very rare truck, and the owner drove from Oklahoma to Southern California just to pick it up! It started out all stock, and now what you see is the result of years of work and dedication, a labor of love!
