No engine mods, but the gearing has been swapped to 4.88. I knew I'd take a power hit coming from the 5.7, but honestly I think the power is totally acceptable as it is. The tires are only 285/70/17, and the topper setup even with the interior buildout only weighs about 500 pounds or less (from what I've been told - haven't weighed it yet). The Orange Virus tuning does look pretty interesting, but the strange thing is the vendor shows they're "sold out" of all the Tacoma modules.

295s were the call! Worked great in the Maze over the weekend. Minimal rubbing on occasion.

So we joked a bit about the fact that I have driven 4 different rigs into the Maze and 4 different sets of tires, as well.

I will say this set up is "currently" my favorite of all. This pic was taken with my Iphone 7 plus in pano mode, nothing else.



Found one more good one.
