“The Ultimate Overland 4Runner, which the Overland Expo staff lovingly nicknamed ‘Earl,’ is even more impressive than we could have imagined. The craftsmen at MULE Expedition Outfitters did a fantastic job installing the collection of world-class components,” said Lodestone Events Marketing and Communications VP Jessica Kirchner. “We will demonstrate in the coming months that the 4Runner is more than just a pretty face; it is truly an ultimate overlanding 4x4. We hope it is a build that inspires others to get out and get going on their own adventures.”

Between now and October, Overland Expo staff and a few select partners will put the 4Runner to the test. They’ll do exactly what the Ultimate Overland 4Runner was designed to do: explore the backcountry. Piloting the 4Runner, these overlanders will craft Trips & Trails and How-To stories on the Compass to further educate and inspire overlanders of all skill levels.

"The growing overland segment is an area where Toyota SUVs and trucks thrive, and we're excited to highlight why the 4Runner is such a great platform for exploration."
