I’m pretty sure Steve can go pretty much anywhere he wants in his First Gen Tacoma with a solid axle swap and dual transfer cases.
My truck is a 2001 Toyota Tacoma with the Trail Gear 5” lift kit C straight axle conversion with Trial Gear Hydro assist steering. I also have dual transfer cases and 5.29 gears. ARB air lockers in the front and back with an ARB front bumper as well. Steve is also a member of Clovis Independent 4 Wheelers and they are running the 2018 Moonlight Madness.
I am running 37” Toyo tires with Trail Gear beadlocks and I have on board air. My exo cage was built by Bent Industries and the sliders are from by Brute Force Fab.
