Howdy, I picked up a '19 TRD OR DCSB. Looking forward to building her up for some fun in the dirt. Any tips and tricks for a complete beginner are definitely appreciated.

Looking for ideas right now. I like the soft cap with mounted tent. I need to get experience off road I think before I really know what I want to do. Family camping is in the very near future to figure out what needs doing first.

Open to suggestions for a good 3+ person over-bed/cab tent for sure.

Don't know what I don't know at this point though.

I’m still pretty new with my tacoma I don’t wanna push this nor am I pushing you but if you’d like you can check out my channel on YouTube get some ideas from mine and my friends builds ? youtube.com/jesserizo and you can also get a lot of ideas from this forum there’s a lot of nice builds that people post your going to like tacoma3g forum ?
I’m running a right line tent for me it fits me and my wife perfect and maybe a small kid depending on your bed size but I’m sure a lot of people on here will recommend a rtt (roof top tent)

Welcome! Always loved the cement color, wish they had it in stock when I bought mine but ended up loving the white. Looking forward to your build!

Starting to research the first few ideas. Looking like Cali Raised rack: https://caliraisedled.com/collections/16-tacoma-bed-accessories/products/overland-bed-rack
and the Smittybilt Overlander tent: Amazon product

Anyone own both or either? I find some references to other Smittybilt products (some assembly required) and a ton of Cali Raised product references.

Decent entry combo?

I have the tent. I always reccomend it when people ask about tents. It’s “cheap” compared to the $1k-2k options out there and it honestly gets the job done exactly the same.

Outstanding! I'll check more thoroughly through your build log. Thanks!

I mest up a week ago that same tent was $699 and If u got there credit card it was $649 lol I should’ve jumped on it but yes I know two people with that tent and they both love it they paid 1k so for that price I’d jump on it still

Couple minor updates: predator steps from the stealership (should have been in when I picked it up, they weren't and had to wait to have them installed). Tinted windows, tossed on some cheap mudflaps, had the 3M nose mask put on, and a badass front plate mount purchased from MrProduxn MrProduxn

Next steps are figuring out the bed rack and RTT solution along with more LED lighting.

Still thinking CaliRaised for the rack and lights and SmittyBilt for the tent for now. We'll see.

Build update:

Cali-raised bed channel supports
Cali-raised bed tie downs
Plasti-dipped the awful chrome badges, grill surround and grill for a temporary fix until I get the Empyre grill.
Bed and hood LEDs installed
Hood struts from redline installed
1.25" spidertrax offsets installed while I figure out a wheel and tire combo

Took to the hills for a bit last weekend.
