The owner of the 2009 Japanese Toyota Tacoma truck, decided to upgrade his car. As a result, the car looks like a pickup version of the 2018 model year. It costs a similar upgrade of $ 17,900

I always admired all kinds of different levels of tuning projects. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about a modernized turbo engine, a lower suspension, or some changes in the cabin that make it more comfortable.

 As part of this article, I want to give you live evidence that there are no restrictions when it comes to modifying old cars. We are talking about the Japanese mid-size Toyota Tacoma of the 2009 model year, which was completely transformed into a pickup version of the 2018 model year, at least from the outside.

 All installed exterior components are 100% original, including fenders, hood, hood “scoop”, LED headlights, front bumper and grille, as well as the entire loading platform and rear door, reverse camera, rear bumper. All of this was taken from Tacoma 2018.

The two-door truck is painted in Army Green, which is said to be a body shade that is available for the 2020 Tacoma. The interior is equipped with the 2018 Tacoma infotainment system with an OEM GPS antenna and a Bluetooth microphone, as well as a factory rear-view camera. The owner of the truck says that everything works as it should.

 Under the hood is the original 2.7-liter engine from a 2009 Japanese truck, coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. The only thing we don’t like is that the pickup has a 4×2 configuration, but the current owner explains that he specifically looked for a non-4×4 model for the best gas mileage, which is claimed to be 12.3 liters per 100 km.

 The price of a modified truck is $ 17,900
