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.
