Overland Classifieds :: 2018 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road

The Tacoma is a popular choice on our forum with recent adventure-ready examples including this 2019 TRD Off-Road, a 2011 DCLB TRD Sport with Four Wheel Campers Fleet, and a 2017 TRD Off-Road with Vagabond Drifter. It’s remarkable with so many featured builds that no two are the same, which is a testament to the huge array of aftermarket parts, accessories, and campers available for this Toyota. So, what makes the Tacoma so desirable? In short, this mid-size hero showcases class-leading reliability, build quality, capability, decent economy, and is priced competitively (the 2022 TRD Off-Road model starts at $35,340). If you’d like to see how this platform can be outfitted for off-grid travel then check out the Tacomas built by Badass Brunette, Jason Turner, and Overland Journal. Alternatively, watch reviews of the ATerra Tacoma Overland Camper and 2022 Tacoma TRD Pro on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. I have to say that today’s low-mileage (39,000 miles) 2018 Tacoma has to be one of the most impressive builds to date. It showcases the desirable TRD Off-Road package, extensive premium modifications, stunning custom paintwork, and Xtrusion Overland bed rack system, and is competitively priced at $60,000.

Selling my beloved Tacoma after pouring more than 2 years and countless time and money into building the perfect rig for wheeling and overlanding. The vehicle was featured at SEMA 2022 for Diode Dynamics. Happy to answer any and all questions. If you’d like to see hundreds of more photos, please check out ‘yotaloco’ on Instagram.”
