New member to the forum here! Not new to lifestyle though. This is my third Toyota, and it's been another fun journey! Pictured here during my visit to Glacier National Park in Montana. I live in Northern Alberta and the province sure has some vast places to explore! Glad to be apart of this group. As I'm looking to upgrade in the future to a full size rig and there's plenty of great info on here!
I whipped up a bumper and tire/Jerry carrier in late Sept. I’m happy with where it’s at for a day tripper now. It gets towed to our explore spots and we use the camper as a base camp, so no need to add all the camping gear to it.

My 2010. Pretty much stock, probably never off-road, and hitting the auction block soon. I had in mind I wanted a mid-sized truck but just could never warm up to it for some reason. I don't drive it near enough to justify keeping it, and could really use the space for a project I want to get rolling. I know these are popular and people are loyal and it'll make somebody a good truck. Jus aint mah thang I guess.
Wow! That chrome tape really takes me back to the ‘85 Nissan 4x4 our family had when I was growing up. I haven’t seen that in ages, it looks awesome on yours. And your photos are always top notch
Do you have a build thread for the 3rd gen?
