I know you didn’t really say you want the tent just yet, but when you do I highly suggest the Smittybilt Overlander. Much cheaper than other options at around $450 and works just as well.

I have all the camping gear but now that i have the tacoma just seems so easy to put it on the roof and open up and you are done!, thank you for the info! ill make sure to save it and do more research!

We got it from Amazon Prime. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KCFKPX0/?tag=tacoma3g-20

I had the price completely wrong, I was thinking of something else I had bought for $450 around the same time. It’s actually $900 on Amazon and maybe slightly cheaper on some other sites with sales. Sorry about the false hope of a super cheap tent.

Here is an update on my truck, got rid of trd offroad grill and upgraded to the trd pro grill, looks way better! also i had to buy the tss sensor front garnish.

Color matched the toyota grill letters to white.

not sure what to upgrade next but i have also been working on recovery gear.
