brockeverly's build thread - camping, overlanding, and general photo whoring inside

I reckon I should start this when I actually start the build, I just started my build thread for my 4Runner a month before I traded it for the Tundra

We are avid campers, most years we spend 60+ nights out in the middle of nowhere. My build will be tailored to that. No huge lifts, massive tires, or awesome electronics to be seen in the future here.

Seeing as most of you do not know me, might as well introduce myself. Name is Brock, I am a father of two girls (one is still cookin', be here in December). I am a transplant to AZ from the sticks in Ohio (Buckeye fan until the day I die, and beyond if there is college football where I am goin'). Coming here from a 2010 4Runner that was also purpose built for camping. I plan on a very similar setup to this on the CM.

Enough talk, more pics!

The inspiration....








And, the new canvas....


And just because I like to have a face to a SN, here is my ugly mug....

Did some online ordering today. Nothing too fun yet, but a few necessities.

ConsoleVault
Prodigy P3 brake controller and harness
WeatherTech digital fit liners

Still deciding on wheels/tires and lift. I am starting to really like the TRD wheels so I may keep them and just wrap them in some 33" equivalent Duratracs. I am all over on lift, mainly a spacer lift for the time being or OME kit with CB shackles.

I agree, if I hadn't got my spacers for $60.00 I would've gone OME also.

CB shackles are the best, cant go wrong there.

As for shoes, I love my Nitto's.

Went to Discount Tire today to check out wheels and tires. What do you guys think about 18x9 MB TKO's in flat black on either Nitto Terra Grappler or GY Duratrac 275/70-18s? The other option is to keep the TRD wheels on the same tires.

Another thing, will they fit without major rubbing until I get my lift on? Rear is no problem I am sure, front could be.

I found a post from Discount Tire here that said that as well, thank you for the info!

Now I am undecided on if a 295/70-18 will look that much better. If it will, I will probably wait until I lift the truck. I am just not sure if I want to sacrifice the mileage for an extra 1.5" in tire. I keep seeing pics of people running them, but not really any of 33's with a 3/2.

The Level 8 Guardian in matte black is looking better and better to me. The MB TKO's are nice, but the lip on the Guardians really sets them off.

Sorry to load your build thread up with pics, but heres my truck with a 3/1 and 33’s, and 34.5’s to give you an idea. At first I liked the 33’s with the 20’s, but I lost interest after a couple months, and lifted my truck higher to fit 35’s on 18” wheels

Here’s my truck when I had a 3/1 and 33’s (305/55/20)





Here’s my truck when I had a 3/1 and 34’s (295/70/18)…The tires look more “stuffed” with the 295/70/18’s:

I'd wait until you lift it and go with the 295/70/18s Terras. That is what I am running now and love it.

Console Vault came today, Weathertechs will be here any time now, and tint goes on tomorrow. Tried to fit this beast in my garage but even touching the wall in the front I have a few inches of bumper hanging out. Oh well, it happens. Ordered a Camco RV stop for my driveway (basically a piece of plastic that once you hit you know to stop) so if my wife has to drive me home she doesn't destroy our garage door.

How much power and mileage would you say you sacrificed to run them?
