    Yeah, seems like he probably could have put two gas cans together on the back and put the always-warm water on the side rack.

    Only $800 to get the three-step ladder [looks unclimbable with the cans on it] and the side mount adapter. I wonder if he's got the interior rack, springs and other "R4" upgrades? https://rnofitfabrication.com/store

    And are we safe to assume he did the Bro Payment Plan??? https://rnofitfabrication.com/bro-payment-plan

    We have that same body style RAV4. A ladder to reach the roof is idiotic unless you're planning to climb up and stand on the roof for some reason.

    If you need to reach anything higher on the roof, just stand on the rear tire, or open a rear door and stand on the door jamb.

    Applies to 95% of all vehicles on the road, except maybe vans.

    Or RVs.

    I've seen those Sprinter type vans with a big ladder on the side. Doesn't that whistle a bunch in the wind?

    One should little worry about such trivial things while leisurely taking on the Baja or the beaches of Morocco. The highway time is minimal when such undertakings are in order. And when one is forced onto the tarmac, driving at 45 mph is a great way to take in the countryside.

    And BTW, chup, I wasnt gonna say anything but I have to: stepping in door jambs to access the roof? How absolutely primitive can you be? For starters, thats not gonna go well for my overland loafers.

    Of course, one would not scuff one's white loafers doing such pedestrian tasks.

    This is why I am pleased to announce my new line of GOTOS-approved roof accessing slippers, produced in collaboration with Snowpeak and Backcountry.com, featuring a titanium goat emblem emblazoned on locally-sourced woven-hemp moccasins. Quantities will be limited, so PM to sign up now and be a part of this exclusive group at your next Sprinter Expo! If you are amongst the first 500 to order, your slippers will be delivered in a UV-stable MOLLE-mountable display case, perfect for exterior vehicular ornamentation!

    Nice! Thats kinda like the ones I got theyre a collab with Wild Earth, Southern Metal, Redback Boots and Old Man Emu that were developed for the harsh conditions of Ayers Rock but have since been tested worldwide.

    Im probably more interested in an ownership interest in the product than I am in the product itself but I think its a winner!

    Well shit, I didn't know I needed externally mounted overlanding loafers until now!

    I'll pay double whatever the asking price is.

    Hard to blame him. Too many motherfuckers are like we got miracle whip when you ask if they have Mayo. Did I ask do you have something disgusting that I can ruin my food with? No. I just asked for some GODDAMNED MAYONNAISE!!!

    Holy fuck that is a lot of gas cans. (New)FJ guys have a pretty high douchebag ratio. The prices those things are getting are way beyond standard Toyota tax.

    I think that's 8 gallons of extra gas. You guys must be going somewhere really remote on that ferry!

    At first thought the AK plates make it legit but then I started wondering how deep you can get away from gas stations in AK? To my southern mind it seems like you'd get into Super Cub territory pretty soon.

    Wait, if that guy just drove from AK to Seattle (resuming that's where Norseman roughly is) with a range of a FJ being about 275/tank (probably a lot less than 275 with that tent on top), 8 gallons of extra gas is legit.

    The roads north of Fairbanks can put you away from gas stations, especially outside of business hours. Or parts of the AlCan - use to be anyway. That rig is suspiciously clean, tho.
