This Dystopian War Zone Off-Roader Used to Be a 2018 Toyota 4Runner

Do you know what’s funny? The Toyota 4Runner is already a very capable off-roader. There’s little reason to beef it up unless you’re planning on using it as a World War Z plow. If that’s the case though, well then this heavily customized off-roader makes perfect sense.

It started life as a 2018 4Runner SR5, before somebody decided it needed more of a military vehicle vibe. If this type of SUV is your cup of tea, you’ll be happy to know that it is currently being auctioned off through Doug DeMuro’s Cars & Bids.

Now, let’s check out the mods. The exterior features aftermarket body panels, a new front bumper, a predominantly brown theme, custom LED lights (front and roof), custom door handles, running boards, a swing-out spare tire carrier, tinted windows, Webasto sunroof and a new set of taillights, borrowed from a GMC Yukon.

The wheels meanwhile measure 18-inches in diameter and are wrapped in Toyo Open Country M/T tires, to go with the custom ICON Vehicle Dynamics suspension system.

Inside, this once-upon-a-4Runner comes with wood-look trim (also known as not wood), custom upholstery (very Bentley-like) and a suede headliner. You also probably noticed that the Toyota emblem found on the steering wheel has been covered, which is both strange and somewhat logical at the same time. Since this car no longer looks anything like a Toyota, you might as well ditch the badge.

It still has plenty of convenience features though, such as the power-adjustable front seats, air conditioning, keyless entry, a power sliding rear window and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity and a rear-view camera.

As for the engine, it’s a 4.0-liter V6 unit, rated at 270 hp and 278 lb-ft (377 Nm) of torque. Not exactly fit for a vehicle that looks like this, but it should get the job done whenever you have flashes of the 4Runner that lies beneath.
