You can kind of convert it yourself. I would start with a set of adjustable coilovers and max out the height. Then I would find a set of wheels and tires that work with the new height. I’m not sure what terrain you’re trying to cover but I think a Yaris can be pretty capable for some situations

Adjustable coilovers will just give you a stiff ride and increase roll over chances. I would go for an off road shock and taller spring then run a phenolic spacer on top of the spring perch get adjustable arms and that should allow you to run some bit 15 geo grapples. Get a few extra inches ground clearance but allows the suspension to flex and move. You'll lose driving precision but that's the off road life.

I took out my back seat and made a flat bed. I do a lot of road trips and have done some easier dirt roads in the yaris. I am running 195/60R15 Falken ZE950s and they hold up to the beating pretty well. I was actually wondering if the roof would handle the weight of a roof top tent lol
