About Toyota Builders Guide

Toyota Builders Guide is the most complete catalog for any and all products and knowledge needed to build up a 4-wheel drive Toyota. Allowing consumers to see as many options available for their vehicle and decide which option is best for their build.

Toyota Builders Guide does not sell any products, it only shows customers what is available and links customers to websites where they can learn more and purchase the products they are interested in.

Toyota Builder’s Guide is FREE for every company. No matter if you have one product or 10,000. Toyota Builders Guide will always be FREE.




Toyota Builders Guide was born out of Joel Moranton’s passion for the Toyota Off-Road Community. The idea came from Joel’s search for a front bumper for his 1996 Tacoma. After hours of searching forums, websites, and social media, he had several web browser tabs opens and decided all this information should be in one place. In the following years, the website was built and destroyed serval times as the layout, backend functions, and user experience were optimized. Just like building an off-road truck, websites are never finished or perfect but this version has 90% of the features he wanted.


Goals of TBG

The goal of Toyota Builders Guide is to allow consumers to find and compare aftermarket accessory for their 4×4 Toyota. With the goal to be a as complete as possible. As consumers search through our catalog they will find interesting and useful knowledge notes about their vehicle. These technical notes are tied to the Year, Make, and Model that the user is searching for. Once the consumer has found the product they would like to purchase they can reach out to the manufacture or reseller that is linked on the product page. If the consumer would like help installing or modifying their vehicle the business directory is perfect to find help local to them.


The Toyota off-road community has been my passion for many years. I have been in the media and marketing side of the community since 2008. Through my experience, I have seen so many people trying to find and access the best accessories and parts for their Toyota, often calling me for advice. This is why I wanted to create an easy and comprehensive way for businesses and manufacturers in our community to be more visible to their customers.

To that end, the Toyota Builders Guide website provides free advertising to all business Toyota off-road community no matter the size. This website is as complete as possible catalog of off-road parts and knowledge that will drive business to your business. The goal is for your potential customers to be able to compare parts they need or want for their rigs, with convenient links to your website to purchase the parts – all the while finding interesting bits of information about their trucks.

Here is an example of how the consumer will use the site: Someone wants a new front bumper for their Toyota Tacoma. They come to and enter Year, Make, and Model. They will be shown all available product categories for their rig and they select Armor > Front Bumpers. Above each category, they will get some technical knowledge about the selected rig, these notes can be sponsored. The site will then show them all the front bumpers (or whatever part they are looking for) available for their rig. They will be able to compare each one and pick their favorite. After they have made a selection they can go to either the manufacturers’ or resellers’ website to purchase the product or contact them. Then to install the product they will be able to locate an off-road shop that can assist them if needed.
