Last Call: Overlanding Minivan

Having established that we have a 4Runner fetish here at Hooniverse, we began to wonder about making our 4Runners even more functional.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    That’s an awesome concept! (And some respectable PS skills.)

    Recent thought:

    Someone needs to do an overland / safari build on a Honda Accord Crosstour. Google image search indicates that it hasn’t been done and I can’t imagine why not.

      I always saw the Crosstour as a starting point for an executive sand rail.

    I see issues with entry/exist for the driver and passenger.
    If you’re on a budget, the answer is always Delica/Starwagon. If not, then VW Transporter 4×4 (4Motion/4xMotion/whatever)

      That is orders of magnitude better.

    Quigley? Or a solid axle conversion on the ‘egg’ Toyota Tarago? (forgetting what they are called in the US)

    Or y’know, the Toyota Hiace 4×4 exists.

    Has anybody done a 4×4 Nissan NV 3500? It’s on a Titan chassis so the stuff should just bolt in.

      There should be amble space for a reasonable transverse I4 in that front overhang. Otherwise, I’m all for a Previa-on-steroids-approach.
