Boyd's Tacoma

Fact: Twenty minutes after we photographed this Tacoma, Boyd rolled the truck while on the Hammers.

Casey Boyd hails from Truckee, California, a town synonymous with wheeling. Naturally, he has a capable rig that's built to handle even the most brutal terrain.

Typical of a good trail rig, Boyd has made a significant number of modifications to his Tacoma. The front fenders have been radiused to make room for a pair of meaty 42-inch Super Swamper IROK tires on modified Hummer wheels. A custom front bumper/brushguard holds a Ramsey REP 8.5 E winch and a trio of Lightforce lights.
