On June 2nd, 2019 I left my home north of Fort Worth Texas, and traveled north to intersect with the Trans America Trail at the New Mexico / Oklahoma border. My goal is to do the whole trail, but instead of driving to Tennessee and backtracking, I decided to do the section between Oklahoma and Tennessee later this summer when I travel back to Ohio (where I'm originally from).
The Ranger is outfitted with the optional Yakima Rack and Skyrise tent, and I replaced the tires with 265/70/17 Cooper Discoverer STT PRO mud terrains. The bed is loaded with a Scepter gas can, water can Lifetime cooler, shovel, Hi-Lift jack (it's behind the cooler), and some X-Bull recover tracks mounted to the front of my Contico storage box.
Oh ya, I mounted my Samsung tablet to the console so I could navigate the trail with the Gaia GPS app.
Here's an in-cab video highlight of the days trip:
