Overland Classifieds :: 2013 Toyota Tacoma fully built for Overlanding and Daily Driving

The Toyota Tacoma is one of the most popular vehicles on our forum. Originally introduced to the US market in 1995 as a replacement for the Hilux, it promised a more refined driving experience while still being a dependable workhorse. The balance between everyday comfort and all-terrain capability has made the Tacoma a sought-after overlanding platform, with a number of stunning examples being recently featured in our Classifieds section (these included a Tacoma with AT Overland Habitat Truck Camper, Tacoma Ultimate “Australian” Overland Rig, and a 2021 Tacoma TRD Off-Road Double Cab). Today’s 2013 TRD Offroad model is one of my favourites to date.

From the Seller:

“I bought this truck off Expedition Portal about four years ago and have substantially changed the vehicle since then: true mid-travel suspension, three-way adjustable coilovers, Alu-Cab camper shell, hardshell RTT, and more. This truck can support you off-grid for as long as your food and water can sustain you, or it can be driven as a daily driver because of the considerable amount of planning and execution of parts.”

The TRD Offroad package uprates the SR5 equipment with BFGoodrich 265/70R16 tires, adds a locking rear differential, uprated off-road suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers, sport seats, heavy-duty front tow hook, engine skid plate, and more.
