4Runner Equipment

Ol’ Blue: Our 2004 Toyota 4Runner

We purchased Ol’ Blue in 2014 with no real intention of taking a trip of this magnitude. The truck had always been a dream of Austin’s and was solely his daily driver and our camping car. Austin quickly came to love his truck and started to invest money into additional parts to make us our semi go anywhere vehicle. The following is a list of modifications that make Ol’ Blue so great.1205160904-01
