I have also been looking for an M416, M101 [maybe] for my trailer project, but the trailers around here are few and far between.

Those are extremely nice trailers but you'll pay 2 to 3 times what I did. :shock:

here is a short video of my recent offroad expedition to the Maze district in Canyonlands, Utah. My friends had very capable vehicles also.

Trip details will be on my blog but this was a journey to explore a number of old mines in the Mojave desert. Always a good excuse to haul the expedition trailer into the middle of nowhere!

Once again my trailer worked really well for me on my latest adventure out in California's Mojave Desert. It was a great trip to try out new gear. I really liked the USMC desert combat jacket. It was great for blocking the desert wind without overheating while on long hikes. The USMC RAT boots by Bates were excellent. The Massif shirt was very comfortable but the cotton based fabric retained too much moisture for the cooler weather that we had. As always, my 4Runner performed very well towing the trailer across difficult terrain.

Just posted up on my blog! The whole narrative and over 30 photos are here: http://suntothenorth.blogspot.com/2014/02/majestic-mines-of-mojave-desert.html

That's a pretty awesome setup. Definitely gives me ideas for what I want to do.

I mounted up new 265/75/R16 Duratrac tires on all six wheels, all the same size and same rims so as to be easily interchangeable. I have one additional spare (lightly used) Duratrac on another rim for the trailer. The truck has its own spare on a rim carried under the chassis.
Image

The reason for the more aggressive tire is about more than just tread and size commonality. On a trip up some muddy Utah canyons I found that the old trailer tires' all weather tread pattern was useless when it came to self-clearing of accumulated mud. I hope that these Duratracs on the trailer will fare better under towing conditions.

A couple of very recent pictures of a trip in California's Panamint Valley, once a hotbed of mining.

All of the details on the truck and the trailer are here: http://suntothenorth.blogspot.com/2014/ ... ailer.html

I have a lot more to add.

I think you might be able to sell some of your photos to the car company, they look at LEAST as good as the ones used in their ads. Make sure you copyright some of the better ones or they might end up in an add without you making anything off them.

I often place a lot of gear on the roof rack of my truck
Image

The rack is made by African Outback but is no longer sold here. It is aluminum and maybe 40 pounds. In the US i think it is Frontrunner that sells a similar aluminum rack called the Wind Cheetah

In this picture I have a D handle shovel, Hi Lift jack, firewood in the cardboard box, four 2.5 gallon gas cans (Scepter of Canada), a Thule cargo bag with the misc gear and two components of a 30foot telescoping mast for comms. (Short &long OD green containers. The long silver tube lookin thing on the right is the awning that is now on the BOT. i have a larger awning for the truck.

The rack has channels for mounting hardware from ring bolts to brackets for the shovel, gas cans and Hi Lift jack.

Thanks for the high praise! You'll get LOTS of use out of your 4Runner! My 2005 has over 200K miles and recently has needed minor repairs such as a radiator (easy to do myself) and a right front wheel bearing (Toyota dealer did that one) but that's it so far.

I found on Craigslist the newest version of one of these fold down spare tire carriers that uses the hitch receiver tube. I saved $150

Image

I will modify the plate for the lugs so that my 6-bolt Toyota rim will drop on and it. This carrier will be on the trailer's rear receiver so that I can carry one more full-sized spare tire.
