Lots of Changes at Offroad Vegan!

I have taken a little breather from writing new content for the blog.

A large part of that is due, in part to….wait for it….selling my Jeep!  That’s right, I sold my Wrangler.

A lot of people asked me why.  Basically it was a combination of things.  Primarily, I was just a little bored with it.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Wranglers.  And I will have another one.  But for now, I wanted something different.

Second, I was bored with rocks.  I have done the Rubicon 3 times, Moab 3 times, and countless trips in Oregon and Washington.  I want to try overlanding and exploring with the family, not just bouncing off rocks.

And last, I want to learn something new.  I have worked on my Jeeps for many years, and want to learn something new.  In addition to overlanding, I want to try a new vehicle, a new platform, and even a new brand.

So I bought a 1993 Toyota Land Cruiser!

The cruiser has 260,000 miles on the original engine, a 3″ OME lift, Fox dual resi-shocks and more goodies.  We started off with a brand new CVT Rainier roof top tent, new ARB bumper, a Warn VR10 winch.  The cruiser also saw a fresh paint job in the original, factory color and it sits on 34″ General tires.

My plan includes a rear swing out, updated auxiliary lights, skids and rails, and a drawer system for the rear.

While I will be keeping an eye on the 2019 JLUR with the Eco Diesel, this Cruiser will be a blast to learn on, camp in, and explore with!
