Spixelz's 5th Gen T4R Overland Build and Adventures


Hello all,

I've been around for a few months, asking various questions etc. I figured its about time I made a build thread to keep track of my build and adventures!

We traded in our 2014 AEV Jeep for the 4Runner. We picked the 4Runner on the east coast and drove it back out to the PNW! I must say it's a hell of alot more comfortable then the Jeep was on long distance trips!
I am the second owner of my 2013 T4R TE. The previous owner put a good amount of work into her and I plan to continue what he started while building my own very capable Overland rig.
