Backwoods Adventure Mods & Mountain Yotas

At Pureblind, we pride ourselves on being a high-end vehicle wrap shop that specializes in creating artistic designs for our clients. Our talented designers have won awards for their work, and we have a world-class print production facility equipped with state-of-the-art printers and equipment.

That means every wrap we create is just about as good as it gets.

When we met the Backwoods Adventure Mods team at Overland Expo Mountain West through our friend Dwight Houser, owner of Mountain Yotas, we were excited to work with them. Backwoods is a great company based out of Arkansas that focuses on making bumpers and accessories for off-road style vehicles. They had a vision to make one of the most badass Toyota Tacomas around, and we were thrilled to be a part of it!

Mountain Yotas did the build on the vehicle, adding suspension, wheels, tires, and an aggressive look, while we designed, printed, and installed the vehicle wrap. We have done several wraps for Mountain Yotas, including Dwight’s truck, which is a custom art wrap with a skull-faced astronaut battling “UFTs” (unidentified flying tires). That truck was featured in the Backwoods booth at Overland Expo Mountain West in 2022, and was part of the reason Backwoods wanted to go with Pureblind for their wrap. They saw how much attention Dwight’s truck got, and they knew they had to have something with a similar level of detail, artistic vision, and install quality.

The Backwoods wrap features a wild boar romping through the mud and is printed in greyscale with a lot of grit and power. It’s a show-stopper, and we are super happy with how it turned out! The designer who worked on this project is our owner, Nick Hughes, who has a diverse background in art, specifically digital art. It’s his passion for art that led him to create Pureblind in the first place. While Nick is a busy guy, he felt strongly about this project and was eager to take it on. His first attempt at the design was very similar, but instead of a Wild Boar he made it a Bear. The Backwoods guys loved the design, but thought it would be awesome to make it a Wild Boar as a nod to their roots in Arkansas. Nick was more than happy to make that change, and the end result is a vehicle wrap that perfectly fits the Backwoods brand and vision.

Not only did we wrap the truck, but we also applied a nano-ceramic coating that provides excellent UV protection and makes the truck essentially maintenance-free. The coating is a durable Ceramic Pro ceramic coating, which was also installed by our talented team. Now that is ceramic coated the Backwoods team can go out mudding and literally spray it off with a garden hose. Not to mention, the wrap itself will last significantly longer now that it has a ceramic coating.

The reaction to this truck wrap has been incredible, and it’s a great example of what we can do at Pureblind. It’s going to be at several major off-roading events scattered throughout the country as a main attraction to the Backwoods booth.

In fact, the Backwoods team was so pleased with the result that they decided to commission a 1:10 scale RC truck that was an exact replica of their custom Tacoma. We also designed, printed, and installed the mini-truck, which was given to the founder of Backwoods as a Christmas gift. It’s so accurate that they actually had a custom topper made for the mini-truck to match the exact topper on their real truck!

We’re extremely proud of the work we did for Backwoods Adventure Mods. The custom Tacoma we wrapped with the wild boar design turned out to be a true showstopper that perfectly captures the brand’s adventurous spirit. We’re honored to have worked with Mo and Ty, the guys behind Backwoods. They were a pleasure to work with and honestly some of the nicest guys we have ever done work for. The entire project was a collaboration between some of the best names in the off-road industry, including Mountain Yotas, who did the build on the truck. It’s always an exciting challenge to create a wrap that fits a client’s brand without any constraints, and we’re glad we were able to exceed their expectations. Our top-notch design, printing, and installation teams all came together to create a wrap that’s truly a work of art.

We’re excited to see where Backwoods takes their Tacoma next and can’t wait to be a part of their next big project!
