GOAT truck armor

Hey guys, last week when I attended the RSGOffroad Open House event I saw a really cool looking Tacoma that had something on it that I initially thought was a funky wrap job, but later found out it was a new product called Go Off-road Armor Tech aka GOAT. Its basically really thick magnetic panels that you can put on your truck for protection. I checked out their website same day and found out that they only offer it for the 3rd gen Tacomas. Long story short, it turned out that they are in Castle Rock, CO which is about 30 minute drive from me, and they needed a 4Runner to finish the design so they can come out with armor panels for our trucks. I got in touch with Matt from GOAT and offered him my wifes truck so he can do his thing and release the product to the public. They just finished with all the measurements today and should be ready to start selling in the next couple weeks. I'm beyond excited for this and thought I'd share the news with you guys. I'm in no way associated with their company, I just love their product, love that they are local, Made in USA and Matt is super cool dude who puts a lot of effort in the things he does (he's also manager of upTOP Overland Racks but that's another topic)

You can check out their website for all the different patterns and colors they have. They will be releasing the same colors that are listed currently for Tacomas for the 4Runners as well.

I wonder if they are going to come out with a "bedlined' version like the ones that are popular in australia. I saw it on 4wheelingaustralia or something on boobtube

I am definitely interested in this. How is he adjusting the output for the badge variance in the rear near the back window? Your wife's trail badge is different than my Pro badge as an example.

I will definitely run that by him. I'm sure if we can get enough people in, he would do something for us.

I honestly dont think that something like that is in the works. He told me what he wants to do next but I dont want to spill that yet.

That's a great point and it was one of the first questions that I asked. So that rear panel is going to be two pieces because of its shape. You can either de-badge, or make the cut in the panel yourself. He said that they are not going to pre-cut the panels there because even TRD Pro to TRD Pro badges dont align the same on every truck

Looks similar to Rhinohide in Australia. I was always curious to know how well the Prado version would fit the 4Runner. Maybe GOAT will expand and start making a 4Runner version???

Yeah they are about to release it for the 4Runner any time now. The initial plan was to have it out by end of May from what I gathered but they didnt have a truck to finish the measurements and everything else that was needed. I can't wait to get a set in Swedish Urban Gray.

GOAT and Rhinohide are very different products, GOAT looks like it's just normal magnetic armor and Rhinohide is the absurdly expensive plastic stuff I was talking about
