    Default the start of my 92 4 runner exploring rig

    This is the start of my expidition rig , always been into 4 wheelin but have scaled back to near stock exploring because I just enjoy it wayyyy more .

    As I got it and on its first trip on the WA backcountry discovery route



    Storage was the first thing to address so made a sleeping platform/storage



    Carpeted


    Amazing how many tools you can shove in one little bag


    All my camping gear , stoves , food , extra clothes , medical kit , coats , machete and axe fit out of sight

    After the small lift ( make room for drivetrain lift and belly pan ) and 33x10.50 bfg at



    Next on the list is bumpers and rock slides

    what kind of hinge and locking pin setup are you going to use? BTW, CAD is the best way to start.

    I am going to try a design I saw that uses two Hyme joints in place of the trailer spindle , seems like a solid slightly adjustable setup so ill give it a shot . I'm still undecided on the latch . Ya "cad" has saved me much headache on many bumpers and suspension work over the years

    My friend had a similar rig (his is a 93) that was pretty built, you can do a lot with them! He had a swingout that used a stock toyota part, I think from a different model. It wasn't super heavy duty but it worked.

    Good setup. With 33's your rig should make it over 90% of the 4x4 trails around here and will do a fantastic job on the backroads. Very nice.
