Off-Roading in Canada Toyota Style – Tundra, 4Runner and Tacoma
The trails in Canada can get very muddy in the first part of the year. Really, really muddy. No problem for the Toyota Tundra, 4Runner and Tacoma. See them in action with these amazing photos.
Photographer Calum Johnston took these photos of his brother Fraser Johnston’s nearly stock 2007 Tundra, his friend Mike Wilkins’ 1994 fully loaded 4Runner and Morgan Perrin’s “seriously modified” 2011 Tacoma. Johnston says he took the photos just outside of Pemberton B.C. (close to Whistler) Canada.
According to Johnston, the White Tundra is a TRD SR5 Crew cab from 2007, and is nearly stock except for:
- Wheels Fuel offroad gauge black 18×10″
- Tires Nitto terra grappler
- LT 295/70R18 34.4″
- Readylift 3×2″ leveling kit
- K&N air filter
- PIAA bulbs
- LEER 100XL canopy
The White 4Runner is a 1994 SR5 fully loaded. Its bone stock except it has airbags on the back, and K&N air box and filter, All season, A/T tires that are close to stock sizing.
Why is it so muddy and how do they get them clean again? Johnston explains:
During the spring/summer/fall, The trucks drive on bush roads REGULARLY… a few times a week. They often come home very muddy.. This day we were at a closed motocross park splashing through the flooded areas. If you hit them with a hose as soon as you get home (before it dries) its pretty easy to clean them up to a ‘dealership’ condition. The Tundra has a lot of surface area, so you would need to set aside a couple hours if you didn’t want your wife to know you were out Wheelin’ (that includes cleaning the engine bay and interior).
His advice for a day of mudding, “If you want to save time on clean up, make sure not to stall out, or get stuck in any deep water! Cleaning your carpet can very time consuming!”

Looks like fun to us. What is your best muddin’ story?
