Overland Classifieds :: 2012 Mitsubishi Fuso FG 4×4

The Fuso 4×4 was the vehicle of choice for EarthCruiser for many years and is widely considered a proven platform for round-the-world exploration. If you’d like a better idea of this truck’s capability then check out Scott Brady field testing the EarthCruiser EXP on the Expedition Portal YouTube channel. Alternatively, read my feature piece on Trucking Oz’s 2006 Mitsubishi Fuso Canter 4×4 as they complete a 14-month overlanding trip in Australia. Bulletproof reliability and go-anywhere performance are just some of the reasons the Fuso is a popular rig on our forum with recent features including this 2013 Camper, a 2007 Overland Vehicle, and a 2013 West Elk Wilderness Edition. Today’s 2012 Fuso FG 4×4 has covered just 41,200 miles, features tasteful modifications, and is the perfect base for a demountable camper or fixed habitation box.

From the Seller:

I hate to have to do this but I’m going to be unable to finish this project. The truck portion of this build has been completed, and it’s ready to be fitted with a habitat of your choosing (or creation). This vision could be completed by someone, as I still have the trailer available and for sale currently. Interested parties please don’t hesitate to contact me.

The Fuso is fitted with a 3.0-liter diesel motor that produces 150 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. A dependable engine and drivetrain are mated with excellent go-anywhere capability thanks to selectable 4WD, manual locking front hubs, 2-speed transfer case, limited-slip rear differential, and full-floating Hypoid front and rear axles. The interior is decidedly utilitarian with easy-to-read instrument panel, dash-mounted shifter to maximise legroom, noise-reducing high-mount intake snorkel, and more.
