    Overland Expo West - Mormon Lake, AZ May 2016

    I finally made it to the Overland Expo! It's a couple days later and I'm still trying to process everything from meeting the Expedition Overland crew to breaking Tron in with our first mudding trip :cool: I am now determined to attend every year from here on out! Sucks I didn't take too many pics at the Expo, was too busy talking with vendors and having a great time collecting ideas and drooling over all the expo rigs :drool:

    I arrived the Wednesday before it all started and stayed the night with our friends in Flagstaff, but woke up bright and early to drive down and check out all the vendors setting up. Here's the first pic I took in front of the Mormon Lake Lodge
    [​IMG]

    Right after stopping by I headed into the woods to find Quintin, Josh, and Bill (all fellow TacomaWorld members) who camped out the first night. Immediately after hitting dirt I knew it was time to try out my new 3.0s! :D Found mud instead...

    Headed out again to find an official camp

    Just before we got back to Mormon Lake we thought the Pelfreys were coming up from behind us
    [​IMG]

    Turns out it was the guys at Team Overland from Oregon rolling in to set up. They were really cool guys and immediately started handing out stickers and talking about how nice it was to see us driving around and exploring. Their TRD Pro T4R is currently the only other white T4R with Pelfreybilt's new plate bumper other than Satin herself ;)
    [​IMG]

    Since we couldn't get into the Expo a day early we sat out front and watched all the badass rigs drive in, EarthRoamers, Unimogs, and so on....I just lost motor function to pull out a camera....:eek: We ended up finding a nice camp with tons of trees later on, then Cliff from @sdhq_offroad showed up to hang with us for ahwile

    I didn't plan on going the first day, but I'm really glad I did! 1 day is simply not enough to take in everything there. As soon as we arrived I kinda went straight for Expedition Overland's new 2016 Tacoma:drool:
    [​IMG]

    It was pretty cool getting to meet and talk with Jeff. I recently got my dad hooked on their show so I made sure to snap a pic for him. Really down to Earth people and sure enough Jeff actually recognized my Tacoma Rinzler while I was showing him pictures on my phone!:headbang:
    [​IMG]

    A picture you don't see everyday with Sean @Defconbrix in front of his Tacoma
    [​IMG]

    Walking out of the Expo to try and park closer to the main entrance, I found this Gem!
    [​IMG]

    If you guys have never heard of them, this is the Overland and Bound #0000 Cruiser. Michael and Corrie are just like any one of us with a passion for adventure! It was nice to finally meet them in person and introduce myself as one of their members, (Member Number #1235) which allowed me to show off Tron and talk with them about the variety of vehicles used to get the job done, mainly Toyotas! :thumbsup:
    [​IMG]

    Found Parking ;)

    Someday Adventure showing off their Mil-spec Trailers and huge Powerstroke!
    [​IMG]

    Then we end here on the last day before the party started haha
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    All packed up and last to leave camp. The old ice chest was later secured and then left next to a dumpster....I did splurge abit at the expo and got myself a new one! :p

    Great write up! Sounds like so much fun! I so badly want to move out west so I can do this type of thing. How do you like your RTT? I'm strongly considering getting one?

    I love it, still my favorite mod and creates a whole new style of camping :thumbsup: Seriously worth every penny

    Pretty damn smooth considering!

    Yea I was definitely holding off some of them for IG, but I really have been too busy to upload the others to my flickr account. Theres a ton of pics on the TW Rock Therapy pic thread
    Not sure if I should be more excited you actually drove my truck, or that you approved of its worthiness :eek::D Definitely a good time tho man! When I get the time to take the shocks back off for a revalve, ill be in touch brutha!

    Ah... i was pretty impressed with how that big tundra handled that jump @TRON especially knowing its only midtravel. Someone said, its stock out back. Leafs and pro shocks? True?

    Dude! You caught some serious air! Didn't damage her did you, that second landing looked rough! :eek:

    @jberry813 very jelly of your Tacoma. Looks like you built her right. :thumbsup:

    Yessir! :cool:

    Thanks man, and yea I definitely pushed it too far. I never intended to jump the truck but it did alright. Only thing to note is my driver bedside was pushed out away from the bed, most likely due to having the rack and tent on the back. Still trying to figure out how to get it back straight, but the gap between it and the tailgate isn't very noticeable in the meantime

    Ouch, that's always a bad feeling coming back from wheeling knowing there's more damage than just a few pinstripes on your DD. Take some pictures for us if you don't mind. Hopefully you'll get her fixed up soon!

    SDHQ Tundra Bolt-On Sliders!

    If you guys are undecided on which sliders to save up for or hesitant in trusting bolt on sliders to do the job, I'm confident you'll be impressed with SDHQ's new bolt on sliders! I know right now they're planning on building some for the double cab as well. The fact that they utilize the cab mounts, are Tig welded, and built using 4130 2" Chromoly Tubing, makes them pretty superior! I can confirm they're rigidity and assurance they'll support the weight of our big beasts :cool:

    Here's some pics I took after install. More pics to come and of course how they did in Moab :thumbsup:
