4More Off Roading: Xplore Vehicles Debuts Customized Toyota 4Runners
Michigan-based Xplore Vehicles prides itself on taking ordinary SUVs -- like the Toyota FJ Cruiser, Jeep Wrangler, and Jeep Grand Cherokee -- and turning them into vehicles better suited for venturing through the great outdoors. The company is now focusing its efforts on the Toyota 4Runner, and has three different stages of upgrades for the SUV.
The Stage 1 4Runner receives a special interior treatment with Katzkin leather covering the seats, a National Park Foundation dashboard badge, and specially embroidered floor mats. That's just the beginning, as Xplore will upgrade your 4Runner with any number of TRD accessories and add-ons normally available at Toyota dealerships.
The Stage 2 kit builds on that equipment list, adding special aluminum wheels, painted silver or black; BFGoodrich off-roading tires; upgraded Bilstein dampers; and a Magnaflow stainless steel exhaust system. Finally, Stage 3 vehicles add a combination of accessories based on the customer's demands. Optional bits include a winch, giant driving lights, locking differentials, an in-car refrigerator, a roof rack, and fortified bumpers.
All of the Xplore packages also come with a one-year pass to all National Parks, as well as a year's subscription to Xplore Lifestyle Journal, a magazine detailing off-road and outdoors adventures. With each vehicle sold, Xplore donates to the National Park Foundation, a charity dedicated to preserving national parks.
