New Project - 4Runner


Father, Husband, Outdoorsman, & Adventurer.
Hello everyone,
Well I traded our 2015 Tacoma for a 2018 4Runner! Now to build it up.

It's a TRD off road premium, in Toyota's most awesome color, magnetic gray metallic and it came with the TRD pro wheels and skid plate.

To do (in no particular order):

Raingler Cargo divider
Upgrade to 33” BFG AT KO2s
Ham radio and CB
Storage system (I'm looking at a Drifta system with integrated fridge slide)
Dual batteries
Switch Pro
Air compressor
Front Runner roof rack with light bar and side/rear lighting
Pelfreybilt front bumper with winch, light bar, and fog lights
Rock lights (I want to tie these into the puddle lights & switch them)
Snorkel & diff breather
CBI rear bumper with dual swingouts

Maybe a rooftop tent & awning, if I do probably alucab for both.

For now, I'm selling my maggiolina RTT to fund the lift. Not sure what I'll do next. It will likely take a couple of years to do all of these mods, but I will do them a few at a time as I can afford them.

Yes, I have 2 tents for sale, one is a Maggiolina Grand Tour medium with anti-condensation mat, winter hood, and awning. Price is $2500. There is a thread about it with pics in Expedition Equipment. The other is an Eezi-Awn ttop xklusiv with annex for $4000. It's currently sitting on my XVenture XV2. There is a thread in campers for sale for the trailer with pics. I would like to sell the whole trailer but would be willing to sell the tent separately.


Seeing the word project I expected to find an older Runner, not one brand spankin' new! Nice color alright. Toyota comes up with some good ones.
