The Toyota Tacoma has quietly built a well-earned reputation for ruggedness and versatility over the last few decades. And that reputation is why the Summit Racing folks selected a Toyota Tacoma as the star of its Project Wayfinder build series.

See the official Project Wayfinder page at for complete details on the build.

Over the course of several episodes, the Summit Racing tech team is upgrading a Tacoma into an all-around performer, tailored to suit the needs of the outdoor enthusiast. Whether that’s fishing, hunting, boating, biking, or beyond, when Project Wayfinder is finished, it’ll be an extremely capable off-road rig ready to carry you on your next adventure.

Part 2, Off-Road Performance

Before Project Wayfinder can head off-road, there’s an established recipe of performance upgrades to follow that will ensure it’ll handle whatever the trail throws at it. And that recipe is exactly what we see in this second installment of the Project Wayfinder series.

From tires to suspension to exhaust, the Summit Racing tech experts have carefully pieced together an off-road upgrade package that allows each modification to work perfectly within the Tacoma to deliver serious trail performance.

Get a good look at which off-road performance upgrades were selected for this specific project (and why they got picked) in Part 2 of the Project Wayfinder build series. Check it out below:
