RealTruck Build Series: Overland Tundra

Greetings fellow truck enthusiast. If you've ever cradled your head in your hands pining for a simple, stress-free existence far from civilization, you've probably looked into overlanding. This popular form of recreation combines some of the best things in life:

  • Abandoning the civilized world

  • Enjoying the great outdoors

  • Customizing your vehicle of choice

Overlanding is best done with a truck that can handle rugged and varied terrain while also providing comfort and security for its occupants. Our 2016 Tundra CrewMax is a great blank slate for building just such a vehicle, so we decided to transform this Toyota into an overlanding powerhouse by upgrading its suspension and adding some killer accessories. Along the way our install team of Chris and Forrest learned some important life lessons about rust, the power of leverage, and whether or not the phrase “beefy boy” should be used to describe truck parts (it probably shouldn't). We invite you to watch as we give this truck a new lease on life in our Overland Tundra Build series.
