My 2000 2WD 4Runner has made a dream of mine come true!

Some of you guys might have seen my post on Reddit already, but I also wanted to share directly to my favorite community! Haven't posted in quite a long time. Been busy, but the car has been reliable and has just kept pushin on since the last time I had to have the rear axels seals replaced.


Anyway, with the help of the 4Runner community + a few film friends, I was able to finally live one of my dreams and create my own 'show'! It's definitely not on par with the production quality of Top Gear or a few Youtubers out there, but it's something I am proud to have created and get out there!


A little backstory on how I ended up with this 4Runner -
I bought this 2000 4Runner from my mom after my 2013 328i was killed by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. The BMW was the first car I ever bought by myself and I was sad to see it go. I needed transportation and fast, so I bought this car and instantly fell in love with it. It was reliable, had a bunch of character and most importantly, it had high clearance for those future Houston floods.

Not too long after that, I found t4r and began modding away - very minor things - soundproofing, upgraded speakers, antenna mod, things like that. All learned from this site.
It wasn't long before I thought of this video idea and started jotting that down. So here's my own version of all those shows I loved, put together and starring our favorite car - the Toyota 4Runner. It's definitely a passion project, so thank you community for helping me put something together!

YouTube


Thank you and I hope you enjoy it!

Very good video over all... Think about getting a wind sock for your mic... Nicely done.

Hey everyone, thanks so much for the feedback on the video!

Will definitely invest in a mic for my next video.

Want to present to you guys another one I made!

YouTube

This one is a lot more Top Gear influenced, with not too much 4x4 involved. It is silly and I tried to bump up my production quality a little - really hard as a one man job!

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this one as much as the first one.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

Nice work!

And if you are looking for a little feedback, I'd also work on stabilizing some of the video. Whether that's by using some sort of internal stabilization, gimbal or in post.

Thanks guys!

Definitely will invest in further video equipment. I bought a drone, but it was stolen literally from my doorstep when I was supposed to get it. ugh

Anyway, Thanks for the feedback and still looking at making these.

Where's my Southern California people at?!
