I suppose I'll play!
2002 4runner SR5. 33s, armor, drawers, fold-out bed, fridge, and 15mpg. Most all the preventative MX has been done amd she has always run well. I have a few more moderate upgrades to do like sound system, but the next major thing is TrueTrac lockers. 20180908_082024.jpg

I've got a 2013 Toyota Tacoma (Prerunner, SR5, only 2WD). Daily driver, taken it on a few 3000+ mile trips to Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, Gunnison, Colo Springs, Great Sand Dunes. Just enough room in the camper shell for me, girlfriend, and the pup. I really like the camper shell compared to an RTT (so does the wallet).

Prinsu Designs roof rack (put it on after most of the pics)
Maxtrax
ARE camper shell
DIY drawers, plywood up on wheel wells with under bed storage drawers for gear

Next up are dual battery, awning mount, aftermarket rear locker, and better drawers.IMG_2768.jpegIMG_1267.jpeg20171002_193612.jpegIMG_20181006_194752.jpeg

Sadly It will be a rather slow one. The camper shell(truck cap) & then the racks I put on. I will reinstall the Thule rack & get pictures on my next days off I will be needing it for hauling some lumber home. Mods to the wife's Chicken coop. Lol next item on the truck will be overload shocks on the back new front shock with probably a 1.5" level kit. Then a reciver hitch. I will keep up on it. Thanks for asking.

I thought we all daily drove our overland vehicles? LOL

Richie is a beast for driving that monster every day.

Mine is like overland lite. Everything is quick and easy to remove so I can load things like our new CalKing mattress I have to pick up tomorrow. :)
It is a pretty rig!
