The All Terrain Tour Documentary

Two years ago today, we had recently returned from shooting the All Terrain Tour in Utah and Colorado and were sifting through 22 hours of footage. Trying to figure out how to tell the story. And frankly, being our first documentary, it wasn’t easy. So much footage, so many small stories and experiences to share, but somehow we had to …

How Do I Get Sponsored?

Part of Outworld’s mission is providing a knowledge base, and with that comes many, many questions. What tires are you running? What size? How much lift? And for the most part, they’re very easy to answer. But there’s one question we see – often asked but rarely explained in useful detail.  How do I get my vehicle sponsored?To be honest, …

Headlight PSA: Are you a Glasshole?

We’ve entered the aftermarket era – for better or worse. When I started building ten years ago, upgrades were few and far between. Even for more popular platforms like the 3rd generation 4runner, most options were either A, B, or custom fabbed. Today’s aftermarket is more akin to a supermarket, with aisles of options for every piece of your vehicle. …

Getting with the Times: Our New 2017 TRD Pro 4Runner

Better late than never, right? To this point, the Outworld garage has consisted of a 3rd and 4th gen 4Runner as well as a 1st gen GX470. While we’ve been following along with our favorite 5th gen 4Runner builds for years, the time has come to move from the back seat to the cockpit. Without further ado, here’s the first …

Radical Sabbatical: The Road to SEMA

Welcome to the Radical Sabbatical – Outworld’s completely nonsensical route to SEMA 2019. Over the next two weeks we’ll be zig zagging up the west coast in our 2007 4Runner – rightly dubbed Bullhorn Edition. From Outworld HQ in San Diego, we’re hitting Big Sur, Santa Cruz, Yosemite, Tahoe, Downieville, Lost Coast, Redwood, Bend, Mt. Hood and Portland. Then, because …

General Tire Grabber A/T X Review

The Outworld crew is constantly on the road. Let’s be real: we all strive for legitimate overland and off-road expeditions, but it’s not like we’re crossing the Darién Gap to get there. The reality is the concrete jungle we aim to escape also facilitates a significant portion of our trips. So unless you’re trailering your rig to the road’s end, …

Sedona

The American southwest is an adventurer’s paradise. With world-class features, parks, mountains and beaches all within a day’s drive, the bucket list compounds continuously and the hunger tends to be insatiable. Because of these vast options, potential destinations fall into one of two categories: “I’m going there next” or “One day, if the stars align”. I’ll admit, Sedona was in …

Our Top 10 Must-Follow Instagram Pages

We’re at the pinnacle of the social media age. If a tree falls in the forest and it’s not shot, uploaded, tagged, filtered, hashtagged, and sponsored, does it make a sound? With smart phones, drones, and GoPros at the ready, we aren’t standing idly by to find out. Gone are the days of sharing your coffee table photo album with …

The All Terrain Tour – Trailer #2

As you’ve probably noticed, summer came and went and the mini-doc still isn’t out. What gives? We are hard at work and plan to release in April 2018. Until then, enjoy the final trailer!

San Diego’s Best Action Sports Destinations

If an ideal headquarters existed for an action sports project, San Diego is among the top prospects.

It’s an outdoor freak’s prime location for a staycation.   San Diego is home to action sports junkies and off-road …
