We just wanted to post up a couple threads, introducing our products, our thoughts on the products, product description, reasoning behind the design etc: please feel free to comment here with your experiences and feedback. And as always we are always here if you ever have any questions.


The TPAM for the 3rd gen Tacoma.

Designed to be a lightweight and strong dash accessory mounting base for phones, gps, tablets etc.

It is a highly versatile system with pre threaded (inserts) patterned after the RAM diamond mounts.

Included with the TPAM is a standard low amperage dual usb Charger : this usb Charger is capable of charging phones and tablets at a nominal rate, for those that desire more performance we now offer a (now more popular) usb fast Charger from Blue Sea Systems (thanks Hodakaguy ??) as an upgrade.

The TPAM mounts to the top of your radio bezel, using through bolts (requires drilling) and goes one step additional for added strength with the two supplied support brackets that tie into your upper radio mounting bolts.

TPAM is a functional design and built for the trail and beyond.

Things to note:

The TPAM requires drilling and some disassembly of your dash for installation

We supply all necessary hardware for installation along with a harness and connectors to tap into the cigarette lighter for power.

As always we stand behind our products and offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects and workmanship.

For technical assistance or feedback we are avail at jeff@expeditionessentials.com

Been eyeing this along with the compressor mount! awesome work on designing functional products!

Do it man! I could not be happier. Have the compressor mount and the Tpam, both are functional and fill a void....that you didn’t even know you had :ROFLMAO:

They are super functional and very well made.

^^that piece going from the main mount to the dash to make it flush new? Never remember seeing that before?? I’ll be purchasing mine right after Xmas. Think it’s the only option strong enough for a iPad Pro.

Yeah it’s new and it’s awesome! Works on the first gen and the second gen TPAM

Here is a pic of original TPAM with the wire cover.

The 3TPAM. Just sayin?
Cool! Looks like you spaced out the blue sea charger for a better and more flush dash fitment.

Any discounts for the beta testers that want to upgrade the the first gen crooked mount?

That looks navigation AF. I still don’t have one but it’s been on my wishlist forever. I think I could get a lot of use out of it on my Cali to NY trip coming up, especially with the iPad up there that the wife can use while shotgun. I gotta order soooooon.

Doooo it! Make sure if you have a WiFi only iPad you get the Bad Elf GPS. Otherwise it won’t be accurate

This is something I wouldn’t have known about, so thank you. Is Bad Elf a backend GPS improver that allows you to use your navigation app of choice?

Correct. It gives your iPad a GPS signal (otherwise you would have no GPS at all), so you can use Gaia, Google Maps, etc. Just make sure if you go off-grid you download maps/routes to your iPad before you go.
