Derrick Candido

Apprentice Technician


I am proud to say I am the very first team member of KRave! I have always had a passion for cars and trucks, tracing all the way back to when I was little and my dad used to take me around in his FJ40 Land Cruiser and we’d go to offroad events. It has been a blast being with the KRave team as I have had the opportunity to go on wicked trails such as Hells Revenge and Top of the World in Moab, Utah. During my free time, you will find me sipping on some bubble tea with good food or I’ll be camping or travelling with my wife, baby girl and our dog, Chia.

Work experience and education before krave

I had done the apprenticeship program in high school but joined the Motive Action program afterwards where it led me to joining the KRave team.

Favourite vehicle of all time?

Any Nissan Skyline GTR. Aside from owning a truck, I do love my JDM vehicles too!

Go-to camp meal?

Garlic butter shrimp or steak

Current Vehicle and favourite modification?

I drive a 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport and my favorite modification would have to be the Yotawerx active duty tune and 5.29 differential gears. This combination has made the truck's drivability with 35” tires, 6 speed manual transmission and heavy weight from the bumpers and accessories more efficiently awesome!
