    Arizona: 1991 Land Cruiser 1HDT HDJ81 (Fully Built For Travel)

    Pictures HERE! I spared no-expense building this vehicle, and due to my vehicle ADD, I’ve decided to move onto a sports car and this must go. The concept behind it was the “ultimate” travel machine, built to tackle any terrain thrown at it, while still being comfortable on the highway and...

    Lightforce Genesis Lights

    Clearing out my garage before a move and found these Lightforce Genesis Halogen lights. Bright as can be. They work great, but do not include a wiring harness, and the plug on one light looks like it was stepped on, but it doesn't effect anything but cosmetics. They're $250 a piece new, and...

    1997 Land Cruiser Troop Carrier Build

    As some of you might know, about six months ago I traded in the sunny shores of California's Central Coast for the red dirt and beaches of Australia. This meant that I now had access to some of the world's best overland vehicles. So, I indulged myself in the local fare and purchased a well-loved...

    2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon - Overland Build

    So, I'll be honest that it really sucks to be writing this, but I'm selling my beloved Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. After (admittedly) flip-flopping around quite a few 4X4s, I bought and built this one to be the end-all, be-all. Then about 6 months later, I got a job at a 4WD magazine in...

    2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Uberlanding Build

    I decided after writing about Jeeps, working on Jeeps, and traveling in really cool Jeeps for the last few years, it was probably time I bought a Jeep. So that's what I did about a month ago—and I'm pretty pleased with my purchase. For the last few years I had been working full-time for...

    Favorite Cold Weather Modifications

    With the impending winter of doom only a few months away (and my temporary return to Chicago) I'm curious what everyone's favorite cold weather modifications are? I've developed a strange niche for cold weather exploration and I'd like to see myself doing more of it this year. What are your...

    4th of July in Colorado ('Merica)

    While the area surrounding Prescott, Arizona certainly has an abundance of 4WD trails, it all kind-of starts to look like the same dry, brown, rocky, tense landscape after a while. I needed an escapeand quite frankly, in Colorado—the grass is greener on the other side. Coincidentally...

    Overland Expo 2013: Expedition Campers and Big Rigs - Show Us! (Official)

    Let's face it, not all of us can make it to Overland Expo this year—work, budget, broken vehicle, whatever the reason—it doesn't have to suck so bad. Personally, having only attended one Overland Expo (and it is awesome by the way) I received the majority of knowledge from fellow...

    Prescott to Seattle in an ARB Jeep Wrangler

    When I think about it, it's actually quite odd that I've never been to the Pacific Northwest. I mean, it's kinda the only place in the Lower 48 that I haven't been to—and it's a place I'm told I'll enjoy very much. Reluctantly, we need to return ARB's Jeep Wrangler, and I've been bestowed with...

    Shenanigans, Misadventures, and the Little Stuff

    I've realized that while a good 95%~ of the adventures I do end up on the front page of Expedition Portal...there's always room for those in the moment, possibly random tidbits. Whether it be a cool restaurant or campsite, a great bar or secluded location, my plan is to post it up here...

    "XTec" Special Edition Land Rover Defender—Yay or Nay?

    What does everyone think about the new special edition "XTec" Land Rover Defender? I dig the combination of a nice paint job, an interesting, upscale interior, and the addition of aggressive tires as standard. I think it makes a great statement. Check it out here on the front page. [link]
