Default Introduction... for me and my company

Hi all!

I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I plan on joining the club and hopefully meeting a lot of you at Cruise Moab and other awesome events this summer.

My name is Matt and I've been wheeling Toyota Trucks since I started driving. I currently have a 2015 Tacoma, 2004 4Runner, and a fully restored '74 FJ40

Needless to say, Im a bit obsessed... so much so, that I am currently in the process of quitting my real-life job to build cool Toyota Truck stuff.

OFF-GRID ENGINEERING, LLC specializes in power systems for Toyota Trucks. We build model-specific battery trays and fully custom wiring kits. I have a few more products on the way as well.

Anyway, everyone likes pics... here are a couple of my rigs



Thats not me driving and Im fully aware that the bezel is upside down. It got flipped shortly thereafter.

I met Matt today. I bought a Jet Tent from him. He is a good guy, currently a Flight Paramedic while he builds his business. When he told me he had a 40, 4runner and Tacoma, I told him he should check us out

He also showed me one of his battery setups in his Tacoma. Very nice work.

It will be nice to have more folks around who are trained for medical emergencies. I am not getting any younger

Thanks Ken! It was nice meeting you. Appreciate the heads up on the awesome forum and vouching for me (and my products). I hope to do some trail runs with you all!

Welcome Matt. You stumbled upon a great group of guys. Just got my first Toyota in January, an 05 Tacoma. Been a long time fan of 4 runners and Tacomas. Just could never get one till now. Look forward to seeing what other products you have to offer.

Any chance you could put together a dual battery kit for a 1998 100? I'd be more than happy to let you use my truck to get cable lengths, tray layouts etc.

I could definitely do that. Ive been looking for a 100 to use as a test vehicle anyway. Give me a call and we'll figure out a time to do some test fitting.

A full wiring harness? Or dual battery wiring?

I don't have a full replacement harness... but that's not a bad idea. I just finished wiring my 40 and it was quite the job. I may branch out in to that stuff before too long.

Yeah, I'd like to do a full harness someday. I've heard painless makes something that is pretty adaptable for a 40. But my electrical skills are not that strong.
