Jess and I wanted to trade in the truck before it started to depreciate heavily. After looking at Wranglers and Gladiators, I went with a 4Runner. I saw how well they do on the trails and they hold their resale much as a Wrangler does. While the Black Knight is set up for crawling, we'll set up this rig for overlanding. The only things we may do it to at first are bumper and winch. It's fairly well set up for overlanding already the way it is.

Reasons for going with the 4Runner is it has a higher towing capacity, it's got a lot of backseat room for our son, lots of room in the back and honestly, I wanted to try it out against the Wrangler and get something not Jeep. We tested the Tacoma and others but the 4Runner has the room, towing, and trim we like. It's not fully able to do what the Wrangler can, but for overlanding, it should be just fine.

As we're about to list a crap ton of overlanding routes on the site, figured a nice overlanding vehicle was in order.

It was hard to swallow the 2020 price tag, but many things were added to 2020 over 2019. The 2019's are MUCH better priced but things like the radar, safety enhancements, better radio, and software, etc.

This video sold me on not needing the pro


Here's a good overview of the difference between the 2019 and 2020. This guy is kinda hard to watch but...


As for mods, I don't see anything yet that'll work with the front bumper radar, but this is what I'm after -
