    I'll never understand why Toyota went with shitty drums in the rear and decided not to offer a "Payload package" of some kind to this effect. I get it would encroach on Tundra sales but a stock Tacoma is so, so limited by its ratings

    Toyota should offer a HD Tacoma and a 1 Ton Tundra, which would essentially open up 2 new potential sales markets for them.

    I agree. I’m pretty sure the Hilux they sell overseas is a great deal more heavy duty but they make more margin on the Tacoma. It’d be nice if they sold a Hilux with a 1 ton rear axle as a chassis cab or a cutaway just for the upfitters. Maybe the market just isn’t big enough to justify it. For that matter, it’d be nice if Ford would sell us the midsized Transit van that is available in other countries.

    Those things are sick, of course, but what few seem to realize is that their size is a major impediment to actually using them off road. The MAN kind of trucks were designed for deserts and taiga, not tight forest service roads with overhanging trees.

    I met a guy in Baja with one recently. He said it was a little white knuckle getting it to the beach where we were. The road in was barely 4wd, but it was a little narrow and had a dropoff. Mexicans, naturally, drove it in 2wd dually pickups with 3000# of stuff in them and bald tires.

    Shit, in the 90's we'd be scouting a dry wash to get through with our FJ62 and some 13 year old fisherman's kid would blast through in a '72 Nova and we'd be "I think we should be okay".

    PROPER tiki torch use: maximum points.

    Also, is this GOTOS, perhaps?

    It’s impressive how ugly Nissan manages to make their vehicles.

    Its hard to believe that Lexus chose something as ugly as the distorted hourglass as a signature grill. Trying to outdo Nissan, I guess.

Beside that I see nothing to make it worth more than any other expedition vehicle except perhaps the totally unnecessary F550 (or Ram 5500). Would help for towing I guess but that doesn't seem to be a focus. They never mention towing capacity on their site and none of their adventure pics show them towing anything.

    Last night's spot. Woodstove as a viable option? Like those wall tent sized ones.

    Nice spot.

    The $150 Chinese Diesel heater is pretty much the right answer anytime the question involves heating a vehicle. I can't imagine trying to find/carry/keep dry wood all the time and then having to wait 20 mins for the fire to really get going, then having to manage it constantly. Plus, how would you vent it?

    Ski RV's, who's sleeping in parking lots?

    Iíve got a 5kw Chinese diesel heater Iím going to be moving on for pretty cheap. I decided a 2kw will be a better fit for my van. If a mag wants it, Iím in Spokane. Brand new never installed, just taken out of the package for predicting and measuring.

    Rad, but a huge missed opportunity by not using a Tundra.

    Bonertown. Shod with some BFGs and I'd rage that thing all over the west.

    Yes, anything is possible. I have a 50cal ammo can wood stove next to the platform in the back of my 100-series cruiser. Iíve found that BBQ charcoal gets a good bed of coals and longer burns. Stovepipe provides much of the heat.

    I might be interested depending on when you unload. If shipping is crazy I could drive over from Bozo.
