    Bought this brand new on January 31st with 81 miles on it. 2015 trail edition. Complete with rear locker, ATRAC, terrain select, and crawl control.
    Plan for this is to keep it daily driver friendly. My last build became a little much for daily driving duties but was a huge learning experience. Wanting this one to be geared toward expedition style and saving weight where I can.
    Dont plan to lift unless I find I need it after a few off road trips. Dont plan to add bumpers unless the factory ones get hung up after a lift.
    I know right away it needed sliders and better tires. Sliders were installed. Choose Shrockworks sliders due to style, price and no shipping costs. Also installed some Spidertracks wheel spacers. For tires I am looking at a few different mud terrains, C load range in 255/75/17.
    Would like a roof rack, ARB fridge, RCI aluminum skids, along with a drawer system in the back but those will come a little later. Short list at the moment as I want to keep this somewhat simple. Would rather focus on camping and recovery gear to make outings more enjoyable.

    Had a bit of winter weather here in DFW late in the season and it was a great chance to test out the 4wd. Very, very impressed with how it performed in stock form. 2015 Toyota Jamboree will be its true maiden voyage.

    This has become a little less daily friendly than originally posted 2 years ago but it's a garage queen now since an Accord serves daily commute purposes. Still gets 17mpg and the rides is nice.

    Armor:
    RCI front skid, aluminum
    Shrockworks sliders
    SSO front hybrid bumper
    CBI rear bumper with swing out tire carrier.

    Suspension:
    Toytec BOSS kit. 650# front springs
    OME rear 898 springs

    Tires:
    Hankook Dynapro MT 265/70/17

    Wheels:
    Method 17x8.5 Grid in titanium color

    Electronics and misc:
    Odyssey 34R battery
    Cheapo Rear LED back up lights
    Ram Mount ball with X grip for tablet mount
    Indel fridge with slide
    Hard wire plug and USB for fridge

    Those sliders are fucking beefy. I was amazed at how much they weighed.

    x2 I was surprised at their weight. They installed pretty easy also.

    Shrockworks uses .188 wall tube for a lot of the construction vs. .120 It adds up.

    3700 miles and new tires. BFG KO2. A little rubbing due to the spacers so I may take them off if minor trimming does not fix it.

    It pushes the tires out to sit flush with the sliders. Looks really good.

    Are the spacers on there in the pics? Hard to tell. I have a buddy wanting to do spacers on his Runner, are you using the spidertrax?

    Spidertrax are on in the pics with sliders. I took off the front mud flaps since they were rubbing. Only slight rub at full lock in reverse.

    Cool. I'll let him know. It looks good with the spacers.

    Time to add a few more things to this. Icon stage 1 lift and an RCI front skid plate. Was going to do aluminum skids but got a smoking deal on the metal one due to 1 mounting hole being drilled wrong but was corrected.

    Very nice I just bought a 2014 SR5 premium and have similar plans to yours. Sub'd. If you don't want to do full bumpers have you checked out Southern style Speeds hybrid front? Gives you a winch, recovery tabs, and lightbar mounting plus some protection. I don't want a full front bumper either as i really like the front end on the 2014+
