Featured Vehicle: 2003 Nissan Xterra

Several weeks ago we posted a feature listing our picks for the top five overland options for 2015. Absent from the list, and causing a considerable amount of pushback, was the Nissan Xterra. As the author of that piece I concede that omitting that vehicle may have been an oversight. Over the last few years our staff at Overland International has owned a couple of Xterras and they have performed admirably. This gave us an opportunity to revisit this proven… read more »

Two Wheeled Nomad: A walk on the wild side

Do you ever let your mind wander to a place just out of reach? Have you seen the fossils of extinct creatures in museums and wondered what they were really like? Have you been teased by thoughts of what our human ancestors might have seen when they first came to South America—creatures now gone from memory, represented only by the hardiest fossil record? Many have fallen into extinction but some remain. In great tracts of primeval forest, still chiefly untouched… read more »

Fatty fatty 4×4: Why GVWR matters

AEV for Ram Truck is now available

We have all come to consider American Expedition Vehicles as the apogee of off-road performance, particularly with regard to the Jeep Wrangler. Their comprehensive catalog of accessories and upgrades transform what is arguably one of the best vehicles in its class into something extraordinary. Now that same level of design excellence is available for the Ram HD 2500/3500 truck. Attribute it to an ever dwindling selection of viable wagons for off-road use, or just an uptick in truck popularity, the… read more »

Field Tested: Giant Loop Great Basin and Kiger

For the adventure rider, there are innumerable decisions to be made with regard to luggage selection. The most obvious is whether or not to go with hard cases or soft bags. While there are sound reasons for hard cases, many riders are best served with the latter. Aside from the fact most soft luggage systems cost a fraction of their hard-sided cousins, soft bags are invariably lighter, hug the motorcycle closer for better weight distribution, and perhaps the most important factor, feel… read more »
