My shorty tundra
I nearly bought an identical truck with the big V8 back around '09 when Toyota was basically giving them away, but walked because I didn't think they were giving me a fair price on my trade-in. Should have just pulled the trigger because it was only going to be about $21,500 out the door. Every time I see one I kick myself. Enjoy!
The big v8 in a little truck is a ton of fun, man I’d love to have a new one for 21k!

The previous rig was stolen a couple of months ago and tonight I was finally able purchase the next build...2012 GX 460. I know its not most peoples first thought when we think of overlanding vehicles but after a lot of research into many other vehicles, I've learned the GX's are more than capable off-road.

Ive got a Toytec 3" lift and Total Chaos UCA's ordered along with 17x8.5 Icon Compressions (bronze) with 285/70 BFG KO2's. I'll definitely post more photos in the next week or two after everything has been installed. We have our first trip of the year scheduled for the first week of March!

Immediate future plans for the tuck are sliders and a rear tire carrier...most importantly though...just getting the family out of the house and into creation!05AAE7B3-DFA0-419A-9635-EBAD20CE392B.jpeg15D7EB8B-E502-418D-A122-24CA9A2E1C02.jpeg

Well it's time to move on from #OverlandRS FocusRS, before the build quality issues become reliability issues. It's been 3 years and really haven't been that impressed by it. So far it has only had a few minor mechanical issues but the value vs loan amount and the dooming issue of reliability means I need to move on. This is for full time overland life. I really don't want a jeep, pickup, or large SUV and my social media was based around this car so I am looking for suggestions on a crossover/small SUV that can tow a lite camper trailer (under 2500lbs) and be offroad dependable. In the end I may be forced to go with an Econoline camper van just to hold all my stuff; and I did spend my entire youth in one every weekend and school break. But coming from high performance hatchbacks, road racing, rail buggies, and rally cars I was hoping for something sportier. Yes I can sleep in this.GMIR6586.jpeg
This was with the 3" lift and Wildpeaks removed to prep for sale.

This is my 95' nissan terranoII. We lift 4cm with arb suspension, mounted 30" tires, the roof rack is DIY, the drawer system too. This little rig is our overland machine.

The Terrano 2 was known as the Nissan/Dancia Duster in countries I am familiar with the larger Terrano was the Pathfinder in USA, I thin yours is the Terano 2?? Cute little ute reminds me of some of the Suzuki offerings.

Yes, this model was not sold in use. After the TerranoI (Pathfinder) Nissan launched the Xterra in the USA and the Terrano2 in Europe. And later the model was separated into the xtrail and the patfinder (on the d22 chassis)
