hey everybody!!! new to overland bound and a novice in regards to overlanding. my rig is a 2013 Toyota Tundra limited 4wd. not much has been done to it yet. its leveled with 35" ko2's. I only have trd off road suspension right now. I'm waiting to upgrade suspension until its deemed needed. Have the warn zeon platinum 12-s winch ordered and going to be doing the hidden mount behind the bumper. I installed full skid plates from RCI. Im trying to decide if I want to do the arb compressor or power tank. I built an off road trailer with an extendable rack with gas struts for my rooftop tent. Im about to build/install a 12v system for the trailer in the near future as well. I, along with my wife and son, are really excited to get more into overlanding, camping, hiking, fishing, and just spending time outdoors in general as a family. we live in Huntington Beach California and look forward to finding places to explore along the west coast

Coming soon!
Hello all!

I have an 06 4Runner. OEM as of now. However, I have a lot of plans for it over the next few years. I am avid outdoorsmen! I grew up hunting and fishing where we just drove. I didn't know it was called "Overland" until I was an adult. Soooo basically that mean I've stayed at a Holiday Inn once. haha... Seriously I am here to learn as much as I can. I know enough to get me back home.

1) Picture! If you have a rig, we want to see it!
No shortage of these, hobby phototaker for many years
2) Location: Florence, AZ
3) Rig: 2020 Ford Ranger XLT FX4, and 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
4) Overlanding Experience Background: Novice, really haven't done anything other than some dirt roads but really want to learn.

I moved to AZ some years back, was always an import/sport car person, and always into photography and target shooting, but learned quickly some of the best spots aren't accessible by lowered or fast cars, so I picked up a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee from a buddy at work, had a 4" lift with 32s (now on 31s). It's become more of a project now, runs and drives fine but not the most reliable unfortunately, so earlier this year I got a 2020 Ranger XLT FX4, and this thing has been surprisingly good. So far just a level kit and exterior things but not planning much as it's a daily driver and will be my main exploring vehicle. Looking forward to learning more for some fun outings.
