2010 SEMA Show: Toyota 4Runner Backcountry by Four Wheeler Magazine

Article by Christian A., on November 2, 2010

Toyota teamed up with Four Wheeleer Magazine and revealed today at the 2010 SEMA Show the Toyota 4Runner Backcountry, a special 4Runner designed to explore the roads less traveled and forgotten places in history.

The car comes with a new Old Manu Emu (OME) suspension system, which includes heavy-duty springs and OME NitroCharger Sport shock absorbers, lifting it with almost 2.5-inches.

Furthermore, the manufacturer installed new P285/70R17 Falken WildPeak A/T tires mounted to 17x8 Teflon-coated ATX Mojave wheels, which means that the 4Runner Backcountry sits approximately 3-inches taller than a standard 4Runner.

As expected, due to the fact that the car was designed for roads less traveled, the car comes with a Warn XD9000 winch, an ARB front Air Locker as well as a new ARB Deluxe Bull Bar front bumper and two 6x9 KC HiLiTES HID driving lights.

In addition, a new an ARB Steel Touring Style Roof Rack was mounted, which serves as a platform for the four KC HiLiTES 5x7 front facing and two 2x6 rear facing lights.

The rear end of the car shows an EVO Manufacturing rear tire and Expedition One Geri fuel can, which frees up space for a custom 13-gallon water tank. The water system uses a 12V inline electric pump to push the water out to a hose that can be used as a shower.

Same guys from EVO Manufacturing developed a new set of rock sliders to protect the body of the 4Runner on the worst trails. Inside, we find a Cobra CB radio for trail communications as well as a dash-mounted Garmin GPS.

These devices run through an S-Pod power distribution system to keep them separate from the factory electronics. Furthermore, the car features a rear cargo area-mounted Power Tank on-board air system for airing up tires, as well as an ARB Fridge Freeze.
