The 2011 SEMA Show will welcome a customized Toyota Tacoma that surfers all over the world will fall head over heels in love with.

That’s what Toyota and Oakley are banking on with the Oakley Surf Tacoma. Built to be a surfer’s mobile playpen, the modded Tacoma was customized by Smithbuilt to become the ultimate surfing carrier. Outside, the pick-up comes equipped with plenty of mods, including a purpose-built roof racking system for heavy hauling and surf bag stowage, and multiple board storage. The truck bed system comes with an ice chest and barbeque grill for all those times where hotdogs and beer come-a-calling. Anytime you start eating or drinking, the truck has a shade system that is equipped in the back of the roof rack system. And when you need to get all that sea water out of your body, the truck has an integrated shower system. Inside, there are also plenty of new digs, including a Wet Okole Hawaii custom embroidered seat covers, Topstitch interior modifications on the door panels, head liner and carpet kit throughout, and a Kicker sound system, among other things.

As far as performance improvements are concerned, the Oakley Surf Tacoma’s 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 236 horsepower will see an increase to 304 horsepower. That was achieved with the addition of a TRD supercharger, as well as other technical modifications, including a Flowmaster stainless steel exhaust, an Icon stage 3 lift kit, Billet top A arms, new leaf springs for added height, and a new front coilover system.

Is this a truck or a van? Whatever it is, I can say that their concept is superb. It seems to be a Transformers car.

It’s a nice collaboration with Toyota and Oakley. It’s great that they’ve created a truck which was specialized for the beach surfers all over the world.

This Toyota Tacoma was very aggressive in style, it seems very heavy and powerful to its exterior design. I really like the added specs of this truck car that can be very use in any land type ride.

Yeah! I think as well that it would have a better performance if it is on a V8 or V10 engine. However, just like them, I also admired the angst and aggressiveness of this Tacoma, especially on its built roof racking system.

It is better if they used V8 or V10 engine for this truck. I just really don’t think that its engine now could give a great or impressive speed on this one. Anyway, the exterior detailing is already satisfying.

I hope that its engine specification is only quite good enough for this truck. Anyway, the graphic design of it truly looks so cool and impressive on it. I just wonder if the interior is awesome as well.

I’m impressed with its purposed-built roof racking system. It’s so cool on that! smiley Anyway, I’m curious on its integrated shower system, is that really true? I wonder if where did they put that feature?

Tacoma Oakley is absolutely looks so cool in its body paint and design, and it looks very massive on wheels. However, I don’t think that the engine of this one will be quite good enough for it.

I love the looks of this Tacoma, and I have to agree that it is absolutely looks so massive on it. However, I don’t think that the engine of this one will be good enough for it.

It looks so massive on that platform and most especially on its wheels. Well, I can say that the new look of this Tacoma is absolutely very captivating, and I love the fact that it was oozing with angst! smiley
