Forgotten note from Death Valley: Suspension needs more travel - possible solution = disconnect/possible removal of front and primary rear sway bars.

After much research and discussion with our small group of Sequoia off road enthusiasts... I decided to remove the sway bars for a few days and get a feel for Wanda's performance.

Plan was to drive around the neighborhood, then nearby trail, then work up to normal driving conditions around town, highway, freeway etc..

That all happened in about an hour.. answer: should have removed the sway bars a long time ago... ride quality is much better, minimal body roll change, suspension rides smoother and quieter, and my goal of more suspension travel was accomplished. A few days later I ventured out with the trailer to experience the same results.

You can see our on-going discussion about the removal of anti-swaybars here: Who has their anti-sway bars removed?

2008 Toyota Tundra Overland Build Suggestions?

Hello all! I am new to the Forum and overland world. I am currently building up my 2008 Toyota Tundra to be a capable american traveler and looking for some advice! I plan on taking trips to see the real USA, not all the common tourist attractions but the real down home back roots places. I want to get out on the back roads and be able to camp in comfort but self contained. I don't plan on any hardcore trails but do plan on getting off grid.

So far I add what I can when budget allows. This is my current set up. I am looking to make it a little more trail worthy but keep overall road manners as it is my daily driver.IMG_4935.jpgScreen Shot 2014-04-08 at 1.13.53 PM.jpg

My question to you experienced folks is what should I add next? I am looking to get out on the road at the end of may, and want to know what would be the most beneficial additions. So far this is what I have done and what I am looking to do. All suggestions are appreciated!

Matching cap
Thule roof rack system
Rhino Rack sunseeker awning
TRD Wheels
Cooper Discover ST MAXX tires
AFE Cold air intake
Corsa Exhaust

Rear tire swing Bumper (Body Armor)
Front Warn Trans4mer grill guard with 2inch receiver
2inch receiver winch
White knuckle off road rock sliders
OME Suspension system
Decked Truck bed system

Anything that I missed that I should really have? Thanks!

Back to Outfitting..
Next project was some interior storage/organization and an ARB CKMA12 on board high-output Air compressor.
Compressor was a need because my trailer runs air springs and I want the ability to run them from the rig instead of going back to the trailer to monitor them.
Details about the trailer can be found here: https://www.overlandbound.com/forums/threads/family-overland-trailer-build-a-aron.21407/

You'll find that I don't like to purchase for things I can do or build myself. I find great enjoyment and accomplishment from designing and building my own accessories and equipment.

I installed the compressor as high as possible in the engine compartment and ran 1/4" DOT nylon airlines to the front and rear bumpers. Makes it nice for airing up and/or hooking up the trailer. I didn't like the idea of popping the hood every time I air up, although if you do, it is a good chance to do a visual check on things.


The rear seats came out on day one.. SO MUCH SPACE! Unfortunately.. lots of space + no standard of organization = Chaos
Storage needed to accommodate a few things:
1 - Stuff that is Always in the rig (unless its being used) First aid kit, Tools, Extra fluids, jumper cables, tarp, Duct tape.. etc etc. = Big Ole drawer with a small removable part for the little things.
2 - Water - I like to keep at least 5 gallons of water with me (5 people @ 1 gallon per day) - the little kids warrant the need to wash.. they love the dirt and rocks, so I decided on a 5 gallon water tank with a 12v pump and sprayer. It makes it so much easier to clean up and fill water bottles, etc when the water comes with pressure.. Our ancestors lived without water pressure so we wouldn't have to..

3 - Emergency - We keep 2 small Action Packers - 1 has a change of clothes for everyone (usually pajamas) and a large blanket, the second has enough food (mostly freeze dried) and water to prepare said food for 2 meals for the family, a backpacking stove, mess kit, and snacks/treats to keep spirits up in the case we get stranded. Oh.. and a 2'x4' Table... so handy!!
4 - Empty space for stuff. Gotta have space to pack our stuff.. kids need lots of stuff, I can fit everything I need for a week in a backpack. I don't have to though, Wanda has a huge rear end with space enough for all our crap.. flip one of the seats down.. and I (6'2" 235 lbs) can sleep comfortably in the back. Most of the time we pack all we can in the trailer, but on day trips.. and when I go solo.. its nice to have space to pack stuff inside. I settled on a platform/rack combination that allows various different arrangements of gear, and could allow for 2 people to sleep inside or be hauled on stretchers if the worst happened.

5- Power- Water pump, cell phones, tablets, heated blankets.. they require power. I have 2 18ah 12v AGM batteries wired up inside the storage system with a switch/relay up front I can turn on to charge them when the rig is running. I also wired for some overhead camp lights in the tailgate and added a secondary switch to turn on the roof rack lights from the rear if desired. Switches, usb ports, and a battery meter to monitor things. You may ask.. why not run a secondary battery? That is in the works.. you can never have too much power.. I'm kind of a nerd that way.

Toyota Sequoia 2nd Gen Off-Road Build

Despite what glossy magazines (including us!) might say, you don’t need to spend a fortune to go on amazing, long-distance off-road adventures. As proof, we built a vehicle that’s as capable as anything out there and that’s peerlessly reliable—for less than $10,000.

Overlanding is sort of like backpacking, but in a vehicle. You carry only what you need, and you need to know how to use all that equipment as you log big miles on backcountry roads. This puts some huge demands on your vehicle: You need a mix of capability, reliability, and usability.

First, we’ll break down what makes a good overland vehicle. Then we’ll show you how we built our own and put that vehicle to the test across Baja, Death Valley, and Tahoe, among other spots. Finally, we’ll show you how to get into serious overland travel yourself—for very little money. 

What Makes a Good Overlander?

The brakes failed during this descent (oops!) in Anzo Borrego, but the 4Runner rode out the steep descent anyway.


If you’re like us, a normal person on a normal budget, then cost will likely be your biggest priority when shopping. There are two expenses to consider: cost of acquisition, and cost to maintain and repair. These are often bimodal—often the more expensive a vehicle is to purchase, the less expensive it will be to maintain and repair.


Durability, horsepower, fuel economy, and prevalence (in the area through which you plan to travel) should drive your decision. You’ll want your engine to max out at least two of those factors. Engines like the 22RE found in our 1987 Toyota 4Runner can be found everywhere and almost never break down. They’re also slow. Not everyone wants to go slow. 


Solid axles and manual transmissions are the default choice, but the stories of failure in independent front suspension (IFS) vehicles or automatic transmissions are overblown. When well maintained, they’ll give you a much improved ride and an easier off-road drive. 

Open differentials are going to be a problem off-road. Find yourself on ice, snow, loose gravel, or with a wheel in the air, and you’ll be using that shovel you carry in your trunk. At a minimum, you’ll want a limited-slip differential (LSD) on the rear axle. If you can find—or afford—it, spring for a vehicle with electronic or air locking differentials. You’ll want one on the rear first. 

Deep water? No problem. It was the locked gate on the other side that delayed us for hours.


Lifts are nice to have, but most of the vehicles considered for overland travel have adequate clearance for just about anything you’ll encounter. But if you’ll be schlepping heavy cargo, the stock suspensions likely won't be adequate. Prioritize the ability to handle this weight when upgrading your suspension—or don’t overtax stock equipment. 

Aftermarket Support

This will dictate how easily and at what cost you can upgrade your vehicle. From lockers to lifts to bumpers to stereos, all this gear will be easier to acquire if the vehicle was or is popular in the United States. That’s a good thing for both your vehicle’s capability and your wallet. At the very least, you’ll want a thriving owner’s forum full of knowledgeable users. They’ll save you money and headaches. 


When traveling in the middle of nowhere, you’ll need to carry water, shelter, and food. If you’ve ever car-camped, you’ll know how to do this: you don’t need to go fancier than a tent, a cooler, and a few bottles of water. You’ll also need to carry extra fuel, a quality air compressor, a puncture repair kit, a full-sized spare, a quality jack, a shovel, and vehicle recovery gear. You need to be prepared to do basic repairs and have the ability to get your vehicle out of most sticky situations. 

Our Build and What You Need to Buy

Saline Valley Hot Springs in Death Valley National Park. The not-a-road in is easy but prone to washouts and extreme snow accumulation. Our 4Runner will never get inextricably stuck.


We started with a stock 1987 Toyota 4Runner with 167,000 miles on the odometer that we purchased for $3,200. If you want to do the same, the best advice we can offer is to look for one with a manual transmission, manual windows and locks, and a previous owner who took good care of it. Why? The automatics in these trucks don’t work well. They are heavy, inefficient, unreliable, and remove control in technical off-road terrain. Also remember that this is a 30-year-old vehicle: electric motors, switches, and wires don’t last forever. 

While Toyota 4Runners and pickups from this era are some of the most reliable trucks ever made, proper maintenance of the factory equipment throughout the vehicle’s life is still important. At the very least, try to find one that hasn’t been abused. 

The holy grail is the 1985 model year. It has both a solid front axle and fuel injection. It offers the additional off-road performance of the earlier trucks combined with the low-hassle nature of fuel injection.

Below, we detail the modifications we made to our truck. This general approach will apply to any vehicle you might want to outfit. 


Sixteen-inch wheels from a 2008 Tacoma, which cost $200 on Craigslist. This size gives you a more modern tire choice than the 15-inch wheels that came stock. Research your bolt pattern and offset, and either find wheels with the correct dimensions or plan on finding an adapter kit. If you’re lucky, you might even find a set of wheels with nearly new OE all-terrain tires still on them. 


Cooper Discoverer STT Pro (265/75-16), which cost $1,100 for five. Once you’re moving, tires are the most important component of any vehicle. They’re the only part that touches the road, so everything else—brakes, suspension, motor—can only ever be as good as your tires. After 15,000 miles on these, we’re confident saying they’re worth the investment. They’re the best all-round expedition and daily driver tires you can put on a truck. Off-road, in loose terrain (mud, snow, sand), they’re absolutely unstoppable, but they also ride well and are silent on the road. No other tire we know of does both so well. Going this large meant we needed to add tension to the torsion bars and fit 1.5-inch wheel spacers ($94), but the result is a wider, stabler ride.  


I added new leaf springs and nitrogen shocks from Old Man Emu to support the additional weight of cargo and improve handling and ride. That upgrade cost $400, plus a few hours in the driveway. We opted for heavy-duty springs to compensate for the weight of heavy-duty bumpers, fuel, the hi-lift, and other odds and ends. Toyota 4Runners are notorious for saggy rear ends: The rear springs are the same as the pickup but have to support the fiberglass top and heavier, glassed tailgate. 

Way out there in Baja, no one's coming along to give you a tow; you need to know your vehicle can handle tricky surfaces like soft sand without getting stuck or breaking down.

Differentials and Gearing

The 22RE is bulletproof but notoriously underpowered. With tires a full four inches bigger than factory spec and an additional 500 pounds of weight, stock gearing wasn’t an option. We took the opportunity to install a new differential—a Detroit TrueTrac—and opted for the more affordable limited slip rather than an ARB air locker. An LSD sends power to the wheel with traction, working automatically to help you drive out of obstacles. It’s not quite as capable as the locking alternative, but it is easier to use and cheaper. This cost a total of $1,900 with labor, because we had a pro do it, but do your own wrenching and you’ll save a grand. 


People love custom steel bumpers because they look cool. If you’re on a budget, do the rear first. You’ll need it to haul your extra fuel, full-size spare, and hi-lift jack. You also get a solid recovery point. Our rear bumper was spendy: $1,300 for fab, shipping, and some frame reinforcements that were necessary when it showed up with the wrong spacing. If you have the budget for a front bumper and want a great experience and product, order from Addicted Offroad in Fort Collins, Colorado. Ours cost $700 shipped, complete with winch mount. 

A beach shack in Baja. With the Cooper Discoverers, the 4Runner was able to cross soft sand that would have waylaid most anything else.


Spending $400 gets you enough winching power to hang your vehicle vertically. We purchased this Smittybilt X20 on Amazon, complete with a 10,000-pound capacity and a safer, stretch-free synthetic cable. 


We went ahead and replaced the radiator, water pump, alternator, belts, and battery—$500 is worth it for peace of mind. 

Other Essential Accessories

What’s the grand total for a vehicle that has safely and reliably carried us through Baja, Death Valley, the Mojave Desert, Anza Borrego, Tahoe, and Colorado’s San Juan Mountains and will get us to Patagonia later this year and all the highways in between? $9,984. You don’t need a brand new SUV to do this stuff.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.

CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert

Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.

CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.

Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.

Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles

Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.

Second Hand — Not Second Best

Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.

But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.

CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories

CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.

Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.

We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
