    4Runner vs LR4 Help

    Icon/King mentioned above make good suspension. OME, if you’re on a budget. Personally, I’d skip KDSS. Didn’t care for it. And less to go wrong. Engine is anemic compared to what you’re used to. So be aware of that. Regarding SR5 vs TRD. I don’t see several thousand $ difference. Cheapest...

    4Runner vs LR4 Help

    I’d opt for the stock e-locker. Works well. I could see if you’re going to get a front locker, then doing an ARB on both ends. I’d stick to TRD Off Road for now. Then upgrading **IF** necessary. Have you driven one? I’m no Rover fan, but the 4R doesn’t drive nearly as nice. Could leave you...

    Bryce's 3g Tundra overlanding build

    I see. Those tents would be cool. Nice supplement if you need more room on a trip. I’d do that for sure. They’re not super expensive. By the way, I used to own a Integra Type R back in the day. 98, Championship White. Had some fun HDPE days. Then sold it to someone who unfortunately went Dom...

    Bryce's 3g Tundra overlanding build

    Looks like you’ve got a nice set up. Tundra is a great rig for what you’re using it for. Personally, I don’t like roof top tents. I’d rather get a high rise shell and simply throw on a sleeping pad on top of that platform you made.

    Tundra TRD Pro for first overland vehicle?

    That’s impressive. I thought it would be much lower. For me, mileage just PLUMMETS over 70-75mph. I think my old Tacoma, unloaded on stock tires got 16 at 80mph.

    Tundra TRD Pro for first overland vehicle?

    I haven’t seen many, but this is cheap! Prob a stripped down version (which I personally like). https://www.pennyrilefordhopkinsville.com/new/Ford/2020-Ford-Superduty-bc36c2480a0e0a175862f2ef0fc7462d.htm?utm_source=CarGurus&utm_medium=WebsiteClicks

    Why SO many used late model RAM 2500s available?

    If I know someone in that line of business, how hard would it be to have them order an extra truck for me to buy? Or is that against regulations? I’d love a stripped F150/250.

    Tundra TRD Pro for first overland vehicle?

    Because we’re on ExPo, I’d imagine the OP would want to get off the beaten path now and then. Truck/camper would be a better set up for that. But more I think about it, pop up might get old day in day out. Maybe one of these:

    Double cab long bed Taco vs. double cab Tundra

    Yeah, well, you don’t see many SR DC’s at the dealerships! 😝 They’re all SR5’s and up. I don’t see them on the road much either. Saw a stripped down gold SR a couple years ago, complete with the steel wheels (not the 5-spoke—the spare tire looking kind ). I said, that’s the exact trim I’d get...

    Double cab long bed Taco vs. double cab Tundra

    This has been discussed multiple times before here. Look at the door jamb sticker, where you get the actual payload. Brochure numbers you’re quoting are without any options, add-one, etc. I’ve yet to see one over ~1,200lbs. Same with the Tacoma. None of mine were over 1k lbs. My last was...

    Tesla Cybertruck: The Future?

    I don’t know. That wedge shaped bed... I’d say rolling cover is more practical. Lift gate limits the cargo to what you can fit under it. Roll away, you can use it like an open bed.

    New F150 reveal 6/25 8pm Eastern

    Ah, ok. Don’t know if this was already discussed, but the generator feature on the hybrid.... is awesome. I could think of a ton of uses for that without having to tote along my generator.

    Tundra TRD Pro for first overland vehicle?

    Truck pop up camper, ie FWC, forget 1/2 tons. Go straight to 3/4 ton or 1 ton. I *may* consider a 1/2 ton if you’re going for an ultralight camper (FWC makes one that’s under 1k lbs), but it would be a spartan set up ideal for weekend campers. If you’re living out of it full time, forget it...

    Double cab long bed Taco vs. double cab Tundra

    What type of trails? There are trails I would hate taking a full-size truck on. ie Black Bear Pass. But the comfort of a full-size just can’t be matched by a midsize. So spacious, rides and tows better and not much MPG difference. Only caveat going Tundra is the poor payload. Like 1,200lbs...

    2015 f150 transmission issues?

    How many miles on your truck? That’s unfortunate. Always a luck of the draw though. I have family members with earlier than expected issues on GMC and Toyota trucks.
