Doug's 2017 4Runner TRD Offroad

Doug came to us with a spacer lift and an otherwise stock Toyota 4Runner, wanting to go off road and rock crawl, however this was his daily driving vehicle, so we had to keep ride quality and the ability to go full highway speeds and tow a trailer in mind. To start the build, we initially decided that armor was going to be a necessity. The vehicle had to have fabricated bumpers and skid plates to withstand the rocks and keep the vehicle safe to drive home. Shrockworks full front bumper, skid plates and rear bumper with swing-out was a perfect solution to this problem. This armor is not only some of the strongest armor on the market, it gave the truck an aggressive look which the customer was going after. With the addition of the armor came the need to reinforce and strengthen the suspension. We chose Arizona Desert Shocks for this build because of the strength and design of their shocks as well as the performance we were needing with this vehicle being abused off-road and then driven home and to work the following day. Total Chaos was an optimal choice for control arms to pair with the ADS shocks giving this customer chromoly control arms, able to withstand any impact and hold the alignment of the vehicle for the drive home. For wheels this customer went with Method 311 Vex wheels and had OMF Performance add their Simulock Rock Rings for not only an aggressive look but for added protection off road from rocks and debris damaging the wheel. The wheels are wrapped in General Grabber 35x12.5r17 E Rated 35” tires to give this customer the confidence to go through the deepest mud pit to the steepest rock wall. For storage on this build, this customer went with Gobi’s Stealth roof rack, one of the strongest racks on the market with the highest dynamic load rating of the other bolt on racks on the market. This customer can mount his batwing awning, Maxtrax tread boards and recovery gear to the roof, giving ample space inside for all his passengers and dogs in the back. This customer wanted plenty of light for night wheeling but did not want round lights or for the lights to stick out and cause wind noise on the highway. We chose Diode Dynamics SAE/DOT Fog light kit for the front bumper, giving the customer full ability to run these on the street with the confidence that he will not be blinding oncoming traffic. For off-road lighting, we chose Baja Designs OnX6 dual control 40” for the roof, giving the driver the option between both a white or amber light pattern depending on conditions being driven through, and coupled a pair of Baja Design S8 10” light bars in the grille next to the Toyota logo in a spot pattern to give the drive all the necessary light in front of the vehicle. The Shrockworks rear bumper has Baja Designs S2 pros for reverse lights as well as Baja Designs S2 Sports in amber on the back of the Gobi roof rack as chase lights when driving in dust or at the desert/beach. All the lighting is powered through the sPod Bantam allowing the customer to control the lights from a digital panel or Bluetooth from his phone!
