Seems to me like that orange Taco has a custom fabricated hood... which seems to be the only way to get a custom hood.
As far as a 4Runner hood, you have to swap out the whole front clip in order to get everything to line up. This is a cool mod for a 2000 and older Taco, but I would think the newer Tacos would look better by keeping the newer grill and hood.
I dunno..I disagree. I still don't like the new 2001-up grill/headlight style. I think the grille looks way too big. I kinda like the 4Runner front ends, although it's a lot of work to switch them out.
Yeah, well... I'm not too fond of the new front end, either, but I'm just saying that it would make a little more sense to do the front end swap on the older tacos. I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to get few extra $$'s out of the new front clip if you were going to change it out.
There is a company that makes fiberglass hoods for tacomas , they are in the 4x4 mags , try picking up a mag and looking through it. It looked liked the hoods for the 4 runners with the scoops , made they make it for the taco.
