Expedition Portal Classifieds: 2017 Tacoma and Four-Wheel Camper

If you’ve been wanting a new Tacoma built for overlanding, then I have good news, your hunt is over. Up for sale today is a practically new Toyota Tacoma with what might be the ultimate combination of parts, and a build list that is almost staggering. Although the price tag might be a bit out of reach for most of us, the final product will certainly make any buyer happy. Instead of telling you all about it ourselves though, we will let the owner’s advertisement do the talking. Check it out below.

2017 (New in 2018) Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road AT. 13,000 miles and ready to head out on adventure! Has the tech package, heated seats, sunroof, JBL Audio package etc. Fully built out, I used high end components in the build and I’m very meticulous in my work.

Specifications

* OME BP-51 Bypass Shocks, remote reservoir and adjustable for compression and rebound.

* Baja Designs 30″ S8 Light Bar with amber back lighting – Amazing light output and daylight color spectrum….this baby really lights up the night!

* ARB Front Air Locker (OEM E-Locker in rear). Full carrier replacement and gets rid of the problematic OEM drivers side needle bearing on the OEM Carrier.

You can manually force the ACR to combine for higher amp loads such as winching as well as to self jump start the truck off the Aux battery.


* Custom wiring between both batteries using 1/0 welding cable, BlueSea low profile fuses and marine grade heat shrink tubing.
* Toyota retractable bumper step (Makes getting up into the bed a breeze

* No cab mount chop done to this truck.

Camper build

2018 Four Wheel Camper Swift Model. This is shell model with options, this keeps the camper light weight and makes an excellent combo with the Tacoma. To order this camper currently from FWC it would be a $22,000 camper with these options.

* Roll over couch makes into lower bed. Flips over into a bed in seconds, still enough room to stand with the bed rolled over.
* Propane forced air furnace. Keeps the camper toasty warm on the coldest of nights.
* Rear Steps
* Lift Struts (60lb) for solar panel weight compensation
* 180 Watt Solar Panel on custom mounting tabs – Attaches directly to the Yakima Tracks.
* BlueSky 30Amp MPPT solar charge controller with custom mounting.
* IOTA 15A onboard charger with shore power plug
* Factory ACR replaced with BlueSea ML-ACR with remote manual control switch. This allows full automatic or manual control of the ACR and camper/truck battery charging.
* Dual AGM Batteries in camper.


* Yakima Roof Tracks – ready to haul kayaks or ?
* Arctic Pack Insulation – really helps to keep the cold or heat out, great for year around use!
* Silver Spur Exterior
* Standard color interior (Makes the camper seem larger and lighter inside than the silver spur interior which is very dark)
* Fantastic powered roof Fan
* Extra roof vent over the bed
* Wired for ARB Fridge using a Powerlet connection (Far superior to a standard automotive electrical connection)
* Shadow Awning on custom stainless steel mounts. This awning is not available from Four Wheel Camper and is far superior to the Batwing 270deg awning that they provide. The Shadow awning is very robust and will stand up to high winds while offering better coverage. $1700 awning!
* Camper Jacks
* Internal Bed Mount Bars (Hidden Mounting)
* Camper has the better passenger side window with the crank out vents. This window allows you to crack open the vents even when it’s raining, FWC just changed windows on their campers and now they come with a one piece sliding window that is limiting for venting options.

Truck – $55,000
Camper – $17,500
