Legacy Overland :: 1961 Land Rover Series IIA 88

One of my close friends owns a Series II Land Rover, and I’m not sure I’ve witnessed anyone simultaneously love and hate something so passionately. The breakdowns are endless, the ride agricultural, safety non-existent, fuel economy abysmal, and brakes—well, who needs them!? Nevertheless, the Series II was the workhorse of its time, easy to fix,…

KUIU Ultra Merino 145 ZIP-T Hoodie

Founded by Jason Hairston, KUIU is primarily a hunting brand designed to be “the lightest and highest performing Mountain Hunting clothing possible.” However, the apparel line has cross-category appeal and, whilst I don’t hunt, is well-suited to most outdoor activities. Hence, I was keen to see how their 145 ZIP-T hoodie would perform on a…

An Interview with Ultra-endurance Rider Lael Wilcox

Where to start? It was a privilege to speak with one of the greatest ultra-endurance riders of our time and to get insight into the immense dedication and sacrifice required to reach the pinnacle of the sport. However, this cycling journey was not as linear as perhaps one would expect, whilst being far more diverse…

Overland Classifieds :: 1993 HZJ73 Toyota Land Cruiser

I’m not sure there’s another vehicle that has quite the same reputation for bombproof reliability in remote locations as the Toyota Land Cruiser, and the HZJ73 variant is one of the best. The Land Cruiser is often considered the standard by which all other vehicles are measured. Historically, this generation was designed from the outset…

2022 Toyota Tundra Showcases Leafless Rear Suspension

Toyota continues to tease fans with the latest Tundra press release, which offers a first glimpse at the 2022 model’s leafless rear suspension. “Turning over a new leaf” gives the Tundra an exciting five-link coil-spring rear suspension setup that promises class-leading on- and off-road performance.   The current-generation Tundra features a traditional live rear axle…

Morgan Plus Four CX-T

Are you super-rich? Bored? Looking for a good time? Then the new Morgan Plus Four CX-T might just be the midlife crisis for you! Sure, at a glance, the Plus Four CX-T might look like what Sherlock Holmes would choose to compete with in the World Rally Championship, but there are some bonafide rally credentials…

1993 Mitsubishi L300 4×4

Small but mighty is the fantastic Mitsubishi L300 4×4. I’ve had the pleasure of owning one of these legendary vehicles, and I still wonder whether I should’ve swapped it for my faithful Vanagon Syncro. The L300 4×4 is a compact van built on a modified Mitsubishi Pajero chassis, which means all the benefits of a…

Sahara Banger Rally

Since Covid struck, the word “holiday” has become triggering for most of us. Once a cause for celebration, it’s now code for cancellations, PCR tests, face masks, and a lengthy quarantine. However, what if the next trip made up for all this? What if you signed up for the Sahara Banger Rally? Why on earth…

The company initially designed products to protect the bike and rider but has since expanded to gloves and grips.

Nitto Tire U.S.A Inc., a manufacturer of racing, off-road, street, and SUV performance tires has announced the launch of a new all-terrain light truck tire, the Recon Grappler A/T. I’ve been a long-term user of BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2s, and whilst I love the tire, it’s exciting to see another option become available in the Light…

Ineos Grenadier Interior

“Comes with buttons, levers, and switches. Remember those?” Ugh, music to my ears. The era of overland vehicles synonymous with simplicity, minimal electrics, and wipe-clean interiors is over. Or is it? Dun, dun, dunn. The Ineos Grenadier might just be the most interesting and refreshing approach to vehicle manufacturing we’ve seen in a long time….

David Daigle, former special forces and Norwegian climbing champion, owner of DID Extreme Expeditions, adventure travel expert, and all-round good guy, is the owner behind today’s featured vehicle, a Toyota Hilux Arctic Truck 38 Polar Edition. I first met David in southern Norway during a road trip to Stavanger, and if I’m honest, nearly came…

Icon Alloys Rebound Pro, Featuring Patent-pending InnerLock Technology

Hardcore 4×4 enthusiasts will already know the benefits that lower tire pressure offers, such as improved ride quality and better traction. However, this also increases the risk of de-beading the tire. While beadlock wheels address this issue by clamping the tire’s bead, they require frequent maintenance, speciality tools/parts, increase rotational mass, and crucially, are not…

AEV Introduces Full-size Recovery Gear Kits

Recovery is an art form and takes a lifetime to master. I’m always learning about new techniques for different situations and, of course, the accompanying equipment necessary. However, if you’re new to the world of 4x4s or overlanding, it’s often a little overwhelming, and heading into the backcountry for the first can be daunting. Hence,…
