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.

What’s the plans for the truck?

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:
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
