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.

True but it is not that bad,plus with a 5th wheel people can ride in them legally

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!

      I am trying to figure out why so many people underestimate the off road capability of the Toyota 4runner? It seems a huge population of people don't understand how capable they are off road. For instance, so many people in the YouTube comments will say things like "you need to get real off road truck", or when they see the new RAM they say, "Finally, you got a real off road vehicle.".
      I can't help but chuckle because the truth is, the 4runner is much better off road! Don't get me wrong, the RAM is plenty capable, has a rear locker, but the 4runner has unbeatable traction control, rear locker, and crawl control. It also has much better break over angle. The 4runner is one of the best stock off road vehicles you can buy, not too far behind a Jeep. 
      When I need to get somewhere that's kinda crazy, I am taking the 4runner, not the RAM. It's just too wide, not enough break over angle, and lacks the traction control of the 4runner. 
      Why do you think people underestimate the 4runner?

      Just curious to hear what gear you carry with you when you know you're going to be far away from civilization? 
      I carry a ton of gear now, usually enough water for all of us for at least 5 days, personal locator beacon (2), mini-jump start, two small fire extinguishers, extra food, 3 recovery shovels, first aid kit, some extra matches, etc. What do you currently carry, wish you had, and think you can do without?

      Has anyone seen this video yet? This guy handles it like a serious pro, and it goes to show how quickly things can turn south. A lot of respect for the vehicle owner, he knew how to deal with the situation and take it in stride!
