Welcome from a fellow member in the Florida panhandle. Be sure to check out the NW Florida thread to meet fellow members in the panhandle area.My name is Randy I live in the Florida panhandle I have a good bit of off roading experience but have been out of the game for a few years just got a 2014 ram 2500 so ready to get back in the game and get started overlanding
Nice rig, Thank You for your serviceHey Everyone,
Wanted a place to get input and learn more about overlanding. I’m a prior service Marine, and recently got interesting in overlanding while doing a build for my little brother as a surprise / welcome to fatherhood. We both love to be outside and he loves his 4Runner. It started with the engine needing to be rebuilt and took off from there.

Hi TJ...Mine is the 4.7 HO...it has a small lift of 40mm and I have just replaced most of control arms with adjustables...so it rides really nice now!Very cool WJ... I love seeing RHD versions. Is it a diesel or petrol? I spent about 2 years in AUS/NZ for work, always had a great time there and got to wheel and camp a bit too. Have you run a roof-top-tent on your factory rack (I see you have aftermarket cross-bars, but I'm curious how the stock front to rear bars hold up with a tent on 'em)?
Very cool, I wasn't sure if you got the 4.7 HO too down there. Also, that old pop-up trailer is awesome! Looking forward to your Ranger tub-trailer build too, I assume you'll have a thread?Hi TJ...Mine is the 4.7 HO...it has a small lift of 40mm and I have just replaced most of control arms with adjustables...so it rides really nice now!
So you had some time to explore here that's great!
I have a rooftop tent but no haven't have it on the top...building a trailer with a Ford Ranger tub for offroad camping and going to mount the RTT on it...right now if I'm camping in the bush...it's either a double swag or a tent...when I go on extended trips I take my old wind-up Jayco on road camper as basecamp!
