Ultimate Vehicle Gear 21

Storage box: AluBox

We will need to store our gear when we’re on the trail. And since this is the ultimate build, we opted for the ultimate gear storage box: AluBox from Equipt Expedition Outfitters. AluBox specializes in aluminum boxes, cases, and containers, and offers a wide-range of standard box sizes to customers around the world for use in defense, industrial, emergency services, transportation, and recreational use. Their products ensure the safe transportation and storage for valuables, fragile items, and sensitive equipment.

Lighting Kit: KC | Adventure Further®

We went to our friends at KC | Adventure Further to provide the lighting kit for the 4Runner because they’re designing some of the highest quality, longest-lasting, and brightest lighting solutions on the market today. Plus, their light products are waterproof, dust proof, and adventure proof – which will come in handy once we put this rig to the test in the field.

Wheels: Voyager 8303 By Mayhem Wheels

We built the Ultimate Overland Vehicle for adventure and needed a durable wheel to keep the 4Runner running on and off-road. We chose the Voyager 8303 in Dark Bronze by Mayhem because the wheels are made of a lightweight aluminum alloy which frees up the 4Runner’s horsepower yet is strong enough to endure the rigors of any trail we choose.

Step Bars: Westin

From simply entering and exiting the vehicle safely to protecting the rocker panels in rugged terrain, Westin’s Outlaw Nerf Step Bars bars ensure easy access and superior vehicle protection. As one of the most trusted names in overlanding, Westin is an incredible ally for the Ultimate Overland Vehicle.

Front Bumper: ARB Winch Bumper

If you plan to outfit a winch to your overland vehicle or simply want more protection from animal strikes, a winch-ready front bumper is an essential piece of kit. The ARB Winch Bumper is an outback-tested design built to protect your front end and provide a seamless integration for your favorite winch.

Rear Bumper and Skid Plates: CBI Offroad

We chose CBI Offroad’s 4Runner Swing Arm Rear Bumper and Skid Plates to protect our Ultimate Overland Vehicle Build because we love the styling and high-quality build materials. We know that this bumper and skid plates will protect the 2021 Toyota 4Runner TRD Offroad for years to come. See their full line of body armor and protection for most vehicles on their website.

Tires: Firestone Destination M/T2

Unlike some tires on this list, the Destination M/T2s are relatively new, released just a couple of years ago. Maybe that’s why they’re not as prolific in the overlanding community as they should be — they’re too new to be tried and true. Nevertheless, they should be on your list for your next overlanding tire.

Rooftop Tent: Alu-Cab

Shelter and shade are the most important considerations for any overland vehicle. We went with the Expedition 3.1 Rooftop Tent, Shadow Awn 270º Awning, and Shower Cube from Alu-Cab for sleeping, shade, and hygiene while we’re on the road.

Winch: Superwinch

When it comes to performing an advanced winch-assisted recovery, Superwinch is one of the most trusted names in overlanding. When the going gets rough, having Superwinch on board the Ultimate Overland Vehicle will allow us to adventure further in even the most challenging terrain.
