Overland Classifieds :: 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road Expedition Build

The Tacoma continues to dominate the forum with recent adventure-ready examples, including this 2020 TRD Pro, a 2016 with a Vagabond Drifter camper, and a 1999 with a 1978 Chinook camper. Despite numerous rigs being posted to our website each week, no two are the same, which is a testament to the wide array of parts, accessories, and services available to uprate this rig for adventure travel. Today’s low-mileage (88,xxx-miles) 2018 offering has to be one of the most impressive to date, with an extensive list of premium modifications and topped with a desirable Alu-Cab Khaya 2 camper. However, it’s worth noting that even in stock form, the TRD Off Road model is very capable, as demonstrated by field tests from TFL Offroad and Dirt Lifestyle. In addition, once outfitted with a lightweight camper set-up, the Tacoma is a great around-the-world companion, as showcased by the adventures of Rogue Wanderers.

From the Seller:

“To design and build this fully outfitted overland camper and long-travel Toyota currently would cost $160,000+ and require one year to schedule. In addition, inflation complicated by labor and parts shortages is a real concern. Save yourself both time and money with this backcountry exploration beast and start enjoying vehicle-based adventure travel in the great outdoors… today.”
