Between a daily driver/weekend wheeler and an "expo" rig besides an extra fuel tank and a roof rack??
Thats what i was thinking, a 5 day camping trip in moab, is not the same as a 1 month trip through the rainforests of south america (theres that 1%). I just noticed that people saying one has an "Expo rig" sounds better than a mild DD/wheeler/camping truck.IMO its how the vehicle gets used. 99% of the people out there doesn't have "expo" rigs.
If you need anything in SoCal let me know. Happy to help out another Georgia Boy. We are in the Corona, Riverside, San Berardino county area.There really is no difference in my world except maybe changing between sets of tires to suit the type of driving...
I have daily driven my truck to work every day since purchased new in 2003 (the BFG all terrains go on).
It serves as my weekend wheeler (the Q78s go on).
It serves as my expedition vehicle (the 255 BFG KM2's and camper top go on).
As of right now it's prepped for expedition mode (while still functioning as a DD) as we leave for Baja, Mexico for 2 weeks on June 1st. Can't wait to go!
I totally agree. A DD can travel light day to day…when ready, just pack the tools, supplies, survival gear and communications (communications may already be permanently installed), and you should be good to go. Remember, you're driving a ToyotaI agree with what's been said. I think that a DD/weekend wheeler is very similar to and expo rig for one primary reason: reliability. Both a daily driver and and expo rig are built so they don't need a bunch of special maintanence to keep them running. They can't do the crazy extreme stuff, but they can do the milder stuff reliably.
Secondly, I think that the gear you carry with your rig is the differentiator. The right tools, supplies, survival gear and communications set an expo rig apart from the DD/Weekend Wheeler. If you can survive catastrophe without any form of aid, that's probably an expo rig.
My two cents...
