    Anyone have expertise in importing vehicles into the US?

    I'm sure this won't be helpful :) but here's 2 cents. I haven't tried a RHD diesel, but it is on my todo list! I want this one if it doesn't work out for you! https://www.cbp.gov/trade/basic-import-export/export-docs/motor-vehicle We moved from Canada to the US and imported a Jeep, and a...

    Geocaching

    Operation Pineapple - Brasil to Alasks - Pan-American Highway

    I finally listened to the CBC Interview today - and thought I would share. http://cj3b.info/Finds/FindsPineapple.html I wish I had the pineapples to drive south to Panama, never mind Argentina, in my TRD Pro! These boys did it 60 years ago without a rooftop tent or GPS. So cool.

    2017 4Runner TRD Pro

    Ours just finished a 1600 mile break-in trip. Pretty happy with how smooth it was to drive offroad vs my 2004. Also happy how much better white hides the dirt vs blue. You are going to love it Congrats. Sent from my SM-T800 using OB Talk mobile app

    Tacoma vs 4Runner

    Having a utility trailer made the 4Runner decision easier for me. Wanted a Tacoma bad, but the increased security and the shorter overall length of the comparable 4 door versions sealed it. Sent from my SM-T800 using OB Talk mobile app
