Are you ready for an adventure? Then you will need a vehicle to get you off the beaten path. This is where the BCT from TruckHouse comes in. We are joined by the founders of TruckHouse, Matt and Nico, two friends that have started a company that builds adventure vehicles like no other. They share the inspiration behind starting the company, why they chose a Toyota Tacoma, how they turned it into a ton truck, and the risk involved when creating the tooling to construct their one-piece cab over design.
“We have over 1000 hours on the computer just designing the shell shape, which has to do with its one-piece construction. The tooling, the draft angles, and how the tool releases are what make it a lot more complex. It would have been much simpler to build a square box. Still, we wanted to put geometry & shape in every panel of every side of the vehicle, which increases the difficulty, but it really makes something look beautiful!” -Matt Linder, CEO of TruckHouse.
The TruckHouse BCT
The TruckHouse BCT is designed to get you off-grid and stay off-grid with 540 amp hours of Battle Born Batteries, 600 Watt of solar, and a second alternator installed under the hood. So you never need to be plugged in. In addition, significant improvements are made to the Toyota Tacoma chassis, taking it from a quarter-ton truck to a full one-ton truck. Still, keeping its small footprint allows you to park it in a standard parking spot. I think what you will find most surprising about this overlanding vehicle is, as tough as it is, it has a lot of comforts built into it as well. Like heated floors, 12 volt A/C unit, pass-through cab access, and modern marine grade appliances.
