OldSven’s 4Runner

After driving a Tacoma with a long list of mods, OldSven decided to change to a 4runner. As luck would have it, selling the Tacoma with all the mods, and getting a decent price for it, didn’t work out, so Sven transferred as many parts as he could to the 4runner. That made for a […]

Ru55ell had an 86 4runner he had dubbed Blue Ox. It was getting old and he wanted to upgrade, so he purchased a 2005 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4×4 and named it Blue Ox II. It started out basically stock – it came with a K&N cold air intake and a ranch hand brush guard […]

1940 Chevrolet Expedition Trailer

Starting life as an old truck bed, Mr. Leary patiently converted this old trailer into a camping trailer.

Mr. Leary’s 3rd gen 4runner

Starting with a basically stock 1999 4Runner SR5, it wasn’t long and stock parts were being taken off, and rugged offroad accessories were put in their place.

X-UHaul to Toyhauler Conversion Project

Starting with a 17 foot ex-UHaul box truck build on an E-350 chassis, this toy hauler conversion is minimal and quick. The first step was to get rid of the orange and white to make it blend in a little better. The U-haul colors were covered with flat black. After the paint was done, the […]
