  • (5" lift, 35" tires)
Douglas grew up riding in the back of pickups in Oregon and California. He comes from a long line of overlanders and adventurers dating back to the Mayflower and the Oregon Trail. During a stint working in Colorado, Douglas fell in love with the offroad scene and immediately gravitated toward the Toyota crowd. His first 4x4 was a 1988 Toyota 4runner nicknamed Goldilocks. After a year of running many of the iconic trails throughout the front range in the fully stock Goldilocks running on bald tires, it was time for an upgrade. Goldilocks went off to a new home and the Albino Rhino came home. The Albino Rhino is a built 1986 Toyota 4runner ready for any adventure anywhere at any time. During the week, Douglas works on systems engineering and architecture problems in California. Douglas also enjoys backpacking -- especially in the central Sierras in California -- scuba diving along the Oregon and California coasts, and riding his motorcycle on the Pacific Coast Highway. Most weeknights you can find Douglas under his truck in the driveway performing maintenance or fixing the latest trail damage.

My Garage (1)

Lift Size: 5"
Tire Size: 35"
The Albino Rhino is a 1986 Toyota 4runner with a lot of modifications. SASed, 35" tires, 5.29:1 gears and ARB lockers front and rear, full floater rear axle conversion, dual transfer cases with 4.7:1 Marlin Crawler gears in the rear t-case and twin sticks for divorced 4x4 and hi-lo selection. The truck is still powered by the original 22RE engine that just keeps on running. Custom front and rear bumpers were built with the help of friends in Colorado including an awesome rear swing-out and a front winch setup. Sliders and skid plates keep the truck in one piece when bashing rocks or grinding around stumps. There are enough lights on the Albino Rhino to light up the forest at night and be seen in downtown Denver when sitting on the top of Yankee Hill. A 175 amp alternator keeps it all powered. The truck has 2M and CB radios to keep in contact on the trail and there is always a satellite transponder aboard to summon help in the event of a serious incident.
