Overland Classifieds :: 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road w/ RSI Smart Cap

The Tacoma is the most popular vehicle on our forum for overland builds, and for good reason. In short, the Tacoma is hard to beat if you’re looking for class-leading build quality, reliability, capability, and a rig that can quite simply do-it-all without breaking the bank. The vast success of this platform has established a wide array of aftermarket parts, accessories, and services that can further uprate it for the road less traveled. We’ve featured numerous adventure-ready examples, including this 2015 TRD Off-Road with a Go Fast Campers V1, a 2016 with a Four Wheel Campers Swift, and a 2019 TRD Pro Supercharged. The Tacoma is well-mannered on the road, but when the tarmac ends, this truck comes to life, as demonstrated on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. Suppose you’d like a better idea of how this platform can be outfitted for travel. In that case, I highly recommend heading over to roguewanderers.com and checking out their round-the-world trip that should see them cover 150,000 miles and 100 countries in their stunning expedition spec Tacoma. Today’s low-mileage (20,000 miles) example showcases the desirable TRD Off-Road package and premium modifications and is topped with an RSI Smart Cap.

From the Seller:

“We love this setup, and we are sorry to part with it, but we need to go bigger. I’ve owned it for about 2.5 years and have never had a recall (unlike some of my other cars or trucks). I just trust that the truck is going to get me where I want to go with no issues. Also, I appreciate the driveability on and off road. The footprint and turning radius make life easier in tight spots in the city and in the boonies (keeping pinstriping to a minimum). The truck is super functional. There are no overcomplicated electronics and add-ons that you just know are going to break or malfunction.”
