When it comes to overland gear, North America has been playing catchup for the last decade.

FJ to Full-Size: Making the Switch

Many overlanders want to live in their vehicle full time, giving them the ability to move with the seasons and wake up to a new view every day. It was certainly my dream, but after taking the FJ on a 2-month-long journey last year, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to live comfortably…
