Motivated to sell, wife broke her arm and is out of work. Partial trades welcome

Will do 18k with stock seats, no winch, and normal off the shelf battery & no secondary instead of the brand new dual odyssey's

I'm now accepting offers on this one of a kind off-road machine.

This rig has been build with a heavy off-road /overland influence. Ready to adventure and take you almost anywhere.

Camper Specs:





-Custom 3 point camper mount with body mounts allowing frame flex independent of the camper.

-Pass through from cab to camper

-Brand new canvas, zippers, and bug screens for the pop top

-Rebuild pop top to assure roof is convex vs concave to properly shed water.

-2.5" of closed cell foam insulation providing structural integrity and the best R value per inch.

-New bearing / track system for the pop top, added 2.5" of headroom, over 6'3 clearance

-Resealed roof. No leaks

-Fiberglassed over all the old, unnecessary holes in the camper.

-Pulled, resealed, and painted all the metal trim throughout the exterior of the camper

-Built a custom metal frame out of 16ga 1x1 to reinforce the fiberglass shell & attach interior paneling to. Extremely well built & sturdy.

-Rebuilt the camper door.

-Resealed the tail lights & marker lights on camper. New tail light housings.

-Closed cell insulation, better R value than most houses, and also adds structural integrity. Very light weight.

-All windows resealed. Any issues fixed, everything is like new.

-Fresh paint on cab & camper. Insulation was oversprayed onto the paint, but a buff should fix it right up. The paint isn’t the best but it sure turns heads everywhere. Compliments at every gas station.

-Brand new custom canvas for the pop top, made with sunbrella & noseeum screens, new zippers etc. Water tight and looks great.



Interior -

Pergo outlast+ flooring. (Waterproof, scratchproof etc)

Custom cabinets, 3 "pantry" shelves, 2 utility cabinets under the sink, 2 drawers under the couch, and one cabinet under the couch.

Fridge spot for a "cooler" style fridge. Big enough to fit most 60+ qt coolers. Plug in right next to it. Under the fridge nook is also more storage.

Foot pump faucet with a 10 gallon fresh and 5 gallon grey tank.

Stainless steel Ruvati sink

Plenty of counter space for a Coleman stove, or I can install a 2 burner stove, but many people don't enjoy cooking inside so I left the cooktop out as it can always be added later.

1100w Krieger inverter

Couch turns into bed 6'6x4' in ~15-30 seconds.

Cabover also provides ample storage

Also a spot you could potentially put a composting toilet.



Truck Specs:

1998 Toyota Tacoma 3.4L V6 5 Speed Manual

-A/C, cruise control, power steering.

-Manual windows, mirrors, and locks. (Less to break)

-Manual locking hubs (rare in the V6 Tacoma's)

-Custom front plate bumper with brand new smittybuilt 9.5k winch

-Custom rear tube bumper with tire swingout.

-Brand new Odyssey truck battery.

-Brand new Odyssey Camper battery that feeds the camper. Charges when truck runs, and when dead won't effect starting capabilities of the truck. Also note this is a dry cell marine battery, intended to be drained and charged thousands of times.

-New carpet in the cab.

-Brand new Corbeau Baja RS seats. Very comfortable and are manufactured for off-road comfort.

-290,000 miles on the odometer. I picked this truck up for cheap needing an engine. I pulled the old engine, and installed a new engine with ~190,000 miles and good compression. I then completed the following maintenance on it. ( I have a 6,000 mile engine I can install for the right deal. Yes, 6,000 original miles, not rebuilt)

-OEM Clutch & accessories

-OEM Timing belt kit, water pump & accessories included.

Suspention:

-Rear half of frame was C Chanel, I had it boxed in for extra support. Fishplates and gussets at any seam.

-New rear shock mounts

-New bilstein rear shocks

-Alcan custom leaf springs. 2.5" lift & rated for 1200lbs extra weight

-2" rear lift shackles to account for height lost when the wheelbase was extended.

Pioneer Double Din stereo with backup camera.

4 brand new Rockford Fosgate 6.5" speakers

Wired for subs.


I'm sure there's more I'm missing, if you have any questions please ask.

Ceiling of the camper needs finished, maybe some nice upholstery or some sweet wood.
Tires are off my other truck and are worn funny. Could use replaced.
A couple trim pieces on the interior could use some love. Nothing big at all, and the price has been adjusted accordingly.

20,000$ takes her home.

Also worth noting, the temp gauge is broken. Trying to fix it. Most likely needs a new gauge. 4x4 light also doesn’t work, but obviously the 4wd works fine. Front diff has a very small leak and the CV axles could use new boots as the boots are original and starting to leak fluid.

The grill & headlight trim pieces are with someone who may or may not give them back. I’m trying to make contact but it is hard. A sweet aftermarket grill is 300$ And the trim pieces are 20$ and probably 100$ to get painted. Again, the price of the rig reflects these things.

Padlock this is so dope. Couple questions: I didn't see anything about a heater, what have you used in cold temps? Top up or down?
Also, it sounds like the top required some serious love and I'm trying to think about ski storage. I'm assuming its manually operated but would it support a rocket box and cross bars?

I used a little buddy but I would install a wave heater.I believe a rocket box would Be fine, if not you can instal gas op struts like i was going to.
