Okay here we go! My name is Loren and my spouse is Danielle, we are a family of 5 with one leaving the nest soon! We have a couple dogs and love to explore in our 2015 Yota 4Runner SR5. We live in the great PNW currently in Washington State near the Columbia River Gorge. So far the 4Runner has a 2.5" lift and full Prinsu rack as well as some lighting upgrades and a TRD skid plate. I've built my own storage system in the back and we have an FSR awning and roof top tent as well. We just recently purchased a TearDrops NW Ranger Off-Road trailer https://www.instagram.com/teardropsnw/ and are getting it outfitted for some Spring/Summer trips hopefully soon! You may have seen our Ranger trailer at Overland NW in Flagstaff in 2021 as it was there for a demo before we purchased it from TearDropsNW! The folks at TearDropsNW are awesome and if you are in the market for an adventure trailer I highly recommend them.

We love to get off the beaten path and have done some 4 low adventures here and there on some pretty rough terrain.
We are hoping to meet some folks by being members and are looking forward to adventures soon! I plan to put up an Instagram page soon dedicated to our Overlanding as we get into this more however you can see my personal profile here if you'd like for now: https://www.instagram.com/lodub78/

Hope to see you out on the trail soon!

By the way @Lifestyle Overland we just discovered your YouTube channel and love your content! Keep it up!

Prost!

Loren & Danielle.

Greetings all,
My name is Brian. I'm fairly new to the wider overlanding community.
Just moved up to the Pacific NW, in the greater Seattle area, and am excited to get out and explore all that it has to offer.
My rig is a '21 Ford Ranger XL/STX 4x4 that I'm in the early stages of building into my dream vehicle.
So far, I've added...
- Old Man Emu (Heavy Load) Nitrocharger shocks, coilovers, and leaf springs
- Black Rhino Arsenal (Sand on Black) in 16x8 with a -10et
- Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 285/75R16
- RTR Fender Flares/Vents
- CoverKing Saddle Blanket Seat Covers
- Clearview Original Gen towing mirrors
Hi Brian and welcome to Overland Bound!

That is a nice looking Ford Ranger. Just out of curiosity, how are these vehicles powered in the US? We currently only have them new in Europe with small 4-cylinder diesels (there used to be a 3.2 5-cylinder as well).

Greetings from Europe

Hi Yaya and welcome to Overland Bound,

My goal is to learn my rig, meet up with groups and see new roads, explore other states and make epic memories.
That sounds like a very good plan. Enjoy!

Trey here from southeast Missouri. My rig is a 2016 Toyota 4Runner Trail edition. Just getting started in overlanding and getting all the gear for my rig. Looking forward to many great adventures all across the U.S.
Hi Trey,

Welcome to Overland Bound!

These new 4Runners look damn good. Unfortunately they are not officially available here at Toyota, only via an import with all the disadvantages.

I wish you great trips and safe travels with it.

Greetings from Europe
