New Roofnest Sparrow

My old rooftop tent was nice but I was tired of dealing with the soft cover.  I sold it and was in the market for a new RTT and it had to be hardshell so I can leave it on.  I was sold on the iKamper but when I saw it in person, it’s pretty massive.  Its nice for the family but most of my trips are solo.  My 4runner is my daily so i wanted something low profile.  I went with The Roofnest Sparrow because of the specs.  48″ wide by 82″ long and 10.5″tall and weighing in at 120 lbs.  Its perfect for my solo trips, me and the wife, or me and the kids.  If we go on a family trip, I purchased the ARB awning with the awning room.  The kids can sleep up in the RTT and wifey and i in the awning room.  Check out how clean it looks mounted on the Prinsu Design Roof Rack.

Dash Cam provided by Black Box My Car

I partnered up with Black Box My Car. They equipped my 4runner with a Blackvue DR750S-2CH. Just in time for our Baja Trip as I don’t know what to expect of foreign roads. Thank you @blackboxmycar.

Had a couple cars cut in front of me at the border


It’s also useful when out on the trails and something cool happens



update June 4, 2018:  Showcased my car at Toyotafest on Saturday.  I had my hatch open and was a little embarrassed of the wire on the rear hatch so I found a new mounting spot for it and tucked the wire.


Here’s a couple pictures of the front cam mounted.



New Shoes

So @rorck_t4r on Instagram was one of the first profiles that I followed. His build is amazing and was my inspiration. I had to have wheels like his. Stealth Custom Series SR8 17×8.5 -10 wrapped in BFGoodrich KO2s 265/70/17. Being new to this, I was afraid up doing the work to fit 285s… but later down the line, you learn. Just go big from the start


I had to have it

The TRD TOYOTA Grill was the first thing I ordered, even before we purchased the truck. It was expensive, but I just thought of what they were charging in MARKUPS for the TRD Pro. My son Lucas helping me out with the install. TRD grill and TRD bumper valance. I purchased the parts from TRDSHOP.COM
