Trail Modifications

Andre wanted trail protection to be a consideration, to shield the expensive new sheet metal and provide proper recovery and jacking points. For this, we turned to Warn for their Ascent front and rear bumpers. In the bumpers, Rigid Industries driving, amber, and flood lights were installed for improved visibility on the road and trail. The lights and other accessories are managed with an sPod SE Edition touchscreen controller. For the winch of choice, a Warn Zeon 10-S Platinum with synthetic line. For safety, a Factor 55 hawse fairlead and FlatLink thimble were used. The last bit of protection was a set of Demello Dominator rock sliders which bolt to the frame rails. 

Demello Off-road Rock Sliders remain our favorite.
Up front, we mounted a Warn Ascent bumper with a Warn Zeon winch.
A Bilstein front suspension works with Deaver rear springs to support the travel load.
The short Eezi-Awn roof rack provides a perfect place to mount a set of MaxTrax recovery mats and a Rigid light bar.

The amount of lift was tuned to 2 inches, which provided room for Cooper Discoverer S/T Maxx 255/85R16 tires. At 33 inches in diameter, this size allows for additional ground clearance and flotation but did not necessitate fender trimming. To keep with the stealthy appearance, the factory wheels were powder coated black. To air up the tires and operate trail tools, an Extreme Outback Products ExtremeAire Endura compressor was fitted, and air lines were plumbed to both the front and rear bumpers. A Warn recovery kit was selected, and a set of four Maxtrax were mounted to the Eezi-Awn K9 roof rack.

SPod continues to provide impressive innovations for controlling remote accessories, and their new sPod 8 circuit SE system is no exception.


Decked recently launched their new Tacoma drop-in drawer system.

Camp Modifications

The inside of the AT Overland Habitat is a comfortable abode, with a thick mattress and tall roof line.
Front Runner Wolf Packs abound and are perfect for storing camping gear inside.
The attention to detail and durability of the Habitat is evident at every corner.

In the truck bed, organization abounds with particular attention paid to the layout and accessibility. Andre installed a full-length Decked storage system that includes two cubbies and roller drawers. The quality is impressive and looks perfect in the back of the Tacoma. On the platform top, we mounted an ARB 63-quart electric fridge in a Transit bag to an ARB bearing slide. At the front of the bed, four Front Runner Wolf Packs are secured with Stratchit tie-down straps, accompanied by a Scepter water can and tool kit. To manage electronics from the rear of the vehicle, an sPod membrane panel was installed to activate lighting and the air compressor from inside the camper. For auxiliary power, a Go Power solar charge controller was fitted, and the dual-battery system is managed by an IBS relay and monitor.

The Decked system is designed for installation in the Tacoma and features heavy-duty roller drawers and a completely flat load floor. In the space fore and aft of the wheel wells, there are small storage cubbies that Andre used to mount an aux battery and stash other small items.  This drawer system is rated to 2,000 pounds on the deck and is Made in the USA!
 IBS dual battery system controller mounts next to the steering wheel and allows for easy monitoring of the power levels.
