The NOMAD is my Nomadic Offroad Machine of the American Desert.
[Note: I'm a software engineer and recursive acronyms don't bother us nearly as much as they do the linguists.]

Moving around a lot, but living much of my life in the various deserts of the southwest and currently residing in Las Vegas within the Mojave Desert, I think it works well. Many of the mods and much of the gear on this rig will be tailored for desert expeditions as I can't remember the last time I saw a mud bog, and only rarely venture into the snow.

Exterior
  • White "N O M A D" Vinyl Graphic
  • Garvin Industries Wilderness Expedition Roof Rack & Air Dam
  • Black Mirrors (from Trail Teams Special Edition)
  • Black Door Handles (from Toyota Tundra)
  • White Bezel & Toyota Nameplate (custom paint)
  • 702fjcrew Club Graphic Spare Tire Insert
  • Black "4x4" & Desert Scorpion Vinyl Graphics

Off Road Armor
  • Expedition One "Diamond" Front Bumper w/PIAA 510 Driving Lights
  • BudBuilt Skid Plates - front, mid, transfer case, crossmember & heavy gas tank
  • Metal-Tech Rock Sliders

Suspension/Wheels/Tires
  • Old Man Emu 885/N140S Front (Medium) & 896/N142 Rear (Heavy)
  • Stock 17-in. Black Steel Wheels
  • Nitto Terra Grapplers 285/70-17

Performance
  • TRD Cold Air Intake

Interior & Cargo Storage

Expedition Gear

Planned Future Modifications & Upgrades
  • Expedition One Rear Bumper
  • Winch - probably the EPi9.0S 9,000 lbs - Superwinch
  • ARB Air Locker(s)

I just got the Doug Thorley y pipe and the new AFE high tuck exhaust waiting to be installed. I'm going to have to pull off most of those heavy bud built's to get it in there though.
