    Seeking help purchasing / importing an HZJ75 from Australia to the USA

    Interesting, I'll do some more looking - I guess I didn't realize it was that different from the 1HD-T in the 80 series.

    Seeking help purchasing / importing an HZJ75 from Australia to the USA

    Oh wow I was not aware of such stipulations. To be completely honest I think that 90% of my travels will be North America with some touring around Baja / Mexico. It is funny that they were allowed in later, and I think I would just hope for that sort of situation if that were to happen. I'm...

    Seeking help purchasing / importing an HZJ75 from Australia to the USA

    Hi Everyone, I have decided its time to build something fun, and rare for a North / Central America road trip. Time and life are finally allowing such a thing. I am wanting to import a pre-1995 HZJ75 flatbed from Australia and throw a flatbed rocky mountain four-wheel camper fleet on it. Has...

    Market for $80k complete truck and camper - mini earthroamer?

    Oh those 550 lariats are in the 70-80 range, then fox all around on 41in tires, enough solar power and batteries to self sustain. Those things are overkill in every way - I also don’t doubt they have large profits. Supply and demand with no competitors means you can have 30% margins I’m just...

    Market for $80k complete truck and camper - mini earthroamer?

    Another main point is how easy it is to have an earth roamer. If you have the money you can go, design it with them, they build it and you are ready to explore. Most people don't want to go through the process of finding a truck, having a flatbed built, finding a camper that will fit and then...

    Market for $80k complete truck and camper - mini earthroamer?

    Thats a valid point, but im not planning to build out as fancy as a 120k dollar class C. The beginning thought would be a base model 30k dollar Ranger Diesel + suspension, front bumper, lights, recovey, stuff etc (10000) = 40000 Camper similar to rockymountain camper, but made of a one piece...

    Market for $80k complete truck and camper - mini earthroamer?

    Hi Everyone, I am trying to get some feelers on the 4x4 RV / Camper / Overlander market. The options seem quite limited right now if you are planning to spend between 80 and 150k on an adventure camper. Option 1 - 100k range - 4x4 Sprinter Van by Winnebago or if you have the means to build it...

    Bilstien 6112 & 5160 on 4th Gen 4runner : Review

    Here it is with the RTT, still has a bit of rake. Going to try tonight with all of my gear and see if that levels it a little.

    Bilstien 6112 & 5160 on 4th Gen 4runner : Review

    Did you set the driver side at the 4th perch and the passenger side at 2nd perch like the manual said? That's the setup I did but looks like you got more lift than I did. Even with the RTT I still have more rake than I wanted - seriously debating moving the spring perch up one click on each...

    Bilstien 6112 & 5160 on 4th Gen 4runner : Review

    Hey Everyone, Wanted to give some feedback on my recent suspension purchase for those looking around. TL;DR - 6112 and 5160 is an amazing setup. The truck: 2005 4x4 v6 SR5 (no XREAS) 114k miles 265x75x16 BFG K02 What I wanted: Nice highway ride, this is my DD. 2inches of lift over stock...

    New Manufacturer: Cave Campers - 750 lbs, $<10k, high quality

    I am in the same boat here, looking for a light, aero, pop up for the new ranger or Tacoma with a flatbed. And one that does not have the stupid aluminum siding to look like a 90s shaggin wagon. Paint matching would also be really cool, or maybe I just wrap the vehicle and camper. I really like...
