[Apr 2010] Bought it fully stock from a close family friend back in senior year of High school.


[Nov 2011 - Dec 2012] My good friend, Carlos, that has a small shop, began the budget restoration on it after I blew the head gasket on the V6 3VZE. We replaced mostly everything from hoses, wiring, radiator, etc. We had the motor rebuilt. Carlos installed the lift kit. Added a LEER camper that I found Craigslist for the exact Toyota. Carlos re-painted the Nomad with the same red original color, including the new acquired camper. Added 35's BFG MT KM2.


[Nov 2015] Install G2 5.29 gears on front and back differentials. Best upgrade after running 35's. The Nomad can crawl now. Stock gears were 4.10's


[June 2016] I acquire the Wildernest Camper from a fellow Instagramer from Oklahoma. Drive all the way over there in my Xterra and trailer to pick it up.


[Late 2016] Motor wont work. Another engine rebuilt. We still don't know exactly what happened. Motor runs better than ever. Can now reach cruising speeds on trips of about 75mph on cool weather.
