Zero to Hero - 1996 4Runner Build TRAILER
Have you ever wanted to build yourself an awesome overlanding vehicle but weren't sure where to start?
In this new series released exclusively for the Overlander Network, Expedition Overland's Clay Croft, and Shop Manager, Tanner Johnson, share a comprehensive strategy to take your vehicle from "Zero" to "Hero" along with tips and tricks for smooth work around the shop.
This D.I.Y. themed series is a perfect fit for anyone interested in building an overlanding vehicle, whether you're new to the overlanding truck-building world or interested in learning new skills to take your game to the next level.
Starting with a bone-stock 1996 3rd Generation Toyota 4Runner with 196,000 miles, Clay and Tanner work through the process of a "Progressive Build" in three distinct stages, finishing with a fully-built overlanding vehicle capable of comfortably and reliably traveling to and through the world's most remote locations.
Whether you decide your vehicle is finished after Stage 1 or you intend to transform your vehicle into an all-out "Hero" by finishing all of the steps through the end of Stage 3, we are certain you will learn what you need to build the overlanding vehicle that will meet your needs and get you out on the trail with confidence!
The full series is accompanied by an action-taker's workbook (PDF download) to help you plan and execute your own build!
