Let's see your off road rigs! Tell us what mods you've added, craziest off road experience, etc.

Here is the 2019 4runner, added some Bilstein shocks, leveled the front, added RCI Sliders, full skids (lower control arm armor, diff armor, full skids down the center, just missing the fuel tank armor). I haven't had any crazy experiences with the 4runner yet, but as you can see, I am over the issue with desert pinstripes!

Not to mention we bought it for work, and our work requires off roading, but it was still hard to accept I was going to destroy the paint on a brand new car.

Yes I bet,, but it looks like you use it for the reason it was built.

Any plans to add

Believe it or not 188k and still runs like a new one. Hard to beat a 318.

 

Any plans to add sliders, or do you not really see much rock crawling? It's tricky, in the desert you can go from trail running to rock crawling very quickly. I am not sure what type of terrain you usually encounter.

I'll have to post some pics after work.  A couple options depending on the area I'm going.

Lol all 3 are Ford Products.  Go ahead bring on the hate. But they've never left me stranded.

I actually wanted a Ford Raptor, but they were out of my price range. You can't beat a f150 for reliability. I have never been much of a brand loyalist, I will take whatever vehicle that will get me there safely!

Pulling the 5th wheel 

90E88DCF-C7B7-4494-B756-B8EEFBFB7357.jpeg

Nice 5th wheel, that's exactly why I got the RAM, but it will pull a travel trailer instead of a 5th wheel. 5th wheels pull nice though, but not sure I want to take up the bed space.

It looks like that Toyota served you well, how are you liking the 4runner?

Here is the RAM. We bought this to eventually pull a travel trailer, aka mobile office, for work. It's got a nice tow rating and is super comfortable, but being a Fiat product, I have my doubt's about quality! I love that it comes with off road tires, rear lockers, and stock armor! Now I gotta get rid of the side step and replace it with some sliders, eventually. 

Gotta love white, doesn't show any pinstripes at all!

Yeah, but now they drive Ford Raptors again, if only I could have got one when they drove the RAM trucks! We recently took a photo in front of the back gate with the RAM.

How I want my own rig.

My dad has an Toyota Tacoma TRD 4x4 off-road, it has already a number of times proved its worthiness.

Both awesome and very capable rigs, I bet there aren't many places you can't get! 

I was dreaming of having a real off road vehicle like those just a year ago! I can't wait to get out there and explore now that I have a real off road vehicle!

      Here are a few things I Love about my RAM so far. 
      1. HEMI Power ... it's not a race car by any stretch, but it's nice to have the extra torque and horsepower when you need it!
      2. Fuel mileage ... Seriously gets nearly the same fuel mileage as my slow and boring 6 cylinder 4runner!
      3. Comfort ... it's like you're sitting in a luxury vehicle, but it's a truck that can actually take you places!
      4. Comes ready to go off road ... it's comes with the right tires, armor, and everything you need to go off road!
      5. Rear locker ... I know this is going to come in handy when hitting the dirt trails!
      Here are a few things I LOVE about my 4runner:
      1. Incredible traction control system ... I have seen what it can do off road and it's pretty impressive. 
      2. Rear locker ... I have used it a few times and it's awesome when you need it!
      3. Reliability ... No arguing with Toyota reliability. 
      4. Resale value ... One of the highest resale value vehicles on the market. 
      5. Crawl Control ... It's like a black magic in the sand! 
      Feel free to add your own, I would love to hear what you love about your current explore vehicles!

      The "new" RAM has about 8,000 miles on the odometer, and I just took it in for the first oil change. From what I have been reading online, many would cringe waiting this long but ... 
      According to manufacturers recommendations, services should be performed every 10,000 miles, but from reading online, most seem to perform their first oil change at 1,000 miles ... but I decided to follow what the engineers who designed the engine suggest. What do you think? 
      Even the dealer is trying to suggest a 5,000 mile oil change interval, so I was considering changing my own oil. That was until I read what a nightmare it is to change the oil and why my undercarriage is now soaked in oil!
      The first issue is the location of the oil drain plug, right above the sway bar and gets all over, but it gets worse!
      The placement of the oil filter is right above the steering rack and leaks oil all over the steering rack and gets everywhere! Double whammy, and there are countless threads online discussing this. 
      Anyway, with all those issues, I have decided I will just take it to the dealer every 10k miles as suggested by the manufacturer, but I will bring my own Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Fully Synthetic oil and K&N Filters. Do you think the dealership will give my any trouble bringing my own oil and filter? 
      I have considered installing a Fumoto oil drain plug and changing it myself, but with all the off -road traveling, I wouldn't want it to get knocked off as it sits very close to the sway bar. Ugh.
