Hello everyone,
Names Daniel. I’m from Post falls, ID. Started Overlanding last year and have been trying to go as often as possible. Always loved camping and with the rooftop tent I get to go more often now. Looking for more places to explore around Idaho-montana. I hope to see some of you on the trails out there!

Hi all, I'm Stefan from Elko County, NV. Been hanging out in the t4r.org forums a lot but thought I'd make the jump over here for the community! Mostly stock 5th Gen 4runner, just tires and suspension. Fair amount of off-road driving under the belt, along with CDL 'froading. Rock crawling though? Not so much. I enjoy the adventure as much as the destination. Cheers n beers

Hi Everybody!

My name is Christian from Altadena CA.

I'm always looking to make new friends amongst a group of like minded people and found out about this forum through the YouTube channel.

Now for my fellow gear heads in the group (with pics!)...

The primary vehicle of choice for my wife and I to have our off-highway adventures in is a 1985 Jeep Scrambler with a 2000 4.0L 6-cylinder engine, a 2006 6-speed manual transmission, 1994 wiring, 1994 clutch cylinders and the original Dana 300 transfer case. I have a 33-gallon tank for more range. When I did the engine and transmission swap from stock I went from 7 mpg to over 15, which did more for my range and driving enjoyment than I could have hoped for. It's riding on 35" BF Goodrich KM3 tires with enough lift to stuff those under the Jeep. The axels are running 4.88 gears with lockers front and rear. The front axel is a Dana 44 and the rear is a trussed AMC 20. The springs are getting a little tired, so the next step will be to put new custom leaf packs on the Jeep all around. I'm reevaluating the old "usual stuff" I haul around, so that I can have the vehicle loaded with whatever becomes the new "usual stuff" when making decisions about the right springs when loaded or empty. Mostly, I'm looking for lighter versions of some things I use now.

There will be a small off-road trailer in my future.

My overlanding and outdoor experience has been gathered over a long period of time through off-roading, hiking, backpacking, scuba diving, kayaking and abandoned mine exploration. That said, I think I have a lot to learn from all of you and think of myself as someone with "intermediate" experience. I believe that the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.

We're gonna have fun!

Christian

Rig: primary rig is a 2019 Tacoma TRD Offroad. It is stock right now, but I am in the process of outfitting it to an overland rig. It has been my plan to do this from the beginning. Unfortunately, COVID got in the way. My secondary/bug out rig is a 2020 Winnebago Revel 4x4

Experience: I am a complete novice in overlanding although I have camped and done some non-recreational offroad stuff. Basically, I had to go places in Central America where there were no roads. Nothing technical, just mud

Hi my name is Kris, I currently reside in Middle GA. I drive a 2015 Ram 1500 and pull 1101A trailer with a RTT on top. I enjoy getting out in to nature by any means possible, preferably the easiest. Hoping to find more trails to explore.
