Overland Classifieds :: 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Overland Build

The Tacoma is a popular platform for overland builds, with recent examples including this 2016 TRD Off-Road w/ 2018 FWC, a 2019 TRD Off-Road, and a 2014 T/X Baja Series. The popularity of this Toyota is pretty remarkable, with the TRD Off-Road model a favourite amongst overlanders.

What makes this truck such a huge success? Well, it’s certainly not the most luxurious, nor is it especially powerful, but it’s considered one of the most capable from the factory, incorporates a long-lived motor and drivetrain, and is relatively economical. Moreover, like so many Toyotas, it has built a reputation for being a fantastic workhorse that’s dependable, whether for overlanding, working on-site, or as a daily driver.

It’s fair to assume that because of the Tacoma’s popularity, it would no longer be exciting or special, but thanks to the wide array of aftermarket parts, accessories, and services, it seems every example brings something unique to the table. Today’s TRD Sport is no different, showcasing extensive modifications, just 104,xxx miles, and competitively priced at $45,000 OBO.

From the Seller:

Selling my 2016 TRD Sport, Barcelona Red, 4×4, short bed, double cab. Currently located in Miami, FL, but will be moving to Louisville, KY, at the end of July. All truck fluids [were] flushed and replaced at 80,000ish miles. I am the original owner, and the truck has never been in an accident. [The] truck has a clean Carfax report and is up to date on maintenance, which has been done by myself. Only selling because the family is growing, and I need to get into a full-size pickup. Please feel free to message with questions.”
