Favorites:
Can't say I have a specific favorite aspect of the truck. I like that everything is pretty unique with some one-off additions that I designed and made myself. I've dug into a lot of areas on this truck and learned a ton. The whole reason for going to a ZR2 was that it wasn't "just another Tacoma", and I can go one further and say I have the same feeling with not being "just another 'overlander' ZR2". My favorite drives are when I'm hauling the mail in BFE. No one around, just me and the truck, letting the suspension eat the terrain, going way too fast, hearing rocks/gravel pitter pattering against the underside of the truck. Serenity.

One fun memory was doing the Top of the World trail in Moab, completely blind and solo, and proceeding to overtake three Jeeps on 40's.

This truck has taken me to many amazing places and will continue doing so, so long as I am able. I've done a lifetimes worth of work in the short three years I've had it, but I still have more plans to greatly improve it's capability and uniqueness.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

I own a 2018 CC ZR2. I'm wondering about the
  • IntelliHaul front camera
My truck has whatever the standard radio that came in a ZR2 is. no cd.
Did you install the camera yourself? If so, did your truck come with all the correct plugs, etc. I'm guess i'm asking if you found the installation plug n play or did you have to make some changes?

It was plug and play. Super easy. Hardest part was fishing the camera leads through the firewall.

Good luck finding one though, I know people were having trouble last year.

My favourite aspect of the truck boils down to the uniqueness of it. Everywhere you look there's a Tacoma, ram, or 150. The zr2 I still find is far and few between, I really dig that about the truck. That you don't have one on every corner, and messing around in fun mode, that always makes for a good time.
