This is a 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road A/T Short Bed with the Tech Package. I chose the Tacoma for an overland build because of its size - big enough to handle some of the smaller 'truck' tasks, but not too big to be a pain driving around on the daily. I went with the Tacoma TRD Off Road version for the electronic rear locker and MTS (off road traction system) - both of which also come on the TRD Pro as well, but not the other models. I bought the Tacoma new off the lot in 2016 and have been building into this purpose-built overland / adventure rig that I use mostly for short weekend offroading and camping trips and others that some might more closely associate with Overlanding. Some might say most of what I do is not 'overlanding' - so I made up the term WEEKENDERLANDER, to kind of make fun of the whole situation. I like to be a WEEKENDERLANDER in my Tacoma - it means you 'overland' but really just for a night or two at a time, like most normal, working people in the world.

Let's list some of the build components here. Some of these links are affiliate links, which means you can click them and buy stuff at no extra cost for you - while sometimes allowing me to get a small % of that sale, in exchange for giving you all this free information and making all the gear easy to find. I'll try to keep this list for the overland Tacoma build up-to-date as best I can. I'm a gear/product/beta tester for a bunch of companies, as well as an overall gear reviewer on YouTube, so my stuff does tend to change a fair bit.
