Lexus Lx470

2003 Lexus LX470 :: Classifieds

The cost of new 4WDs seems to increase exponentially with the latest offerings from the likes of Lexus exceeding $100,000. Not to mention that most of us will then want to modify and outfit the vehicle for travel, which oftentimes isn’t cheap. This has had a knock-on impact on used 4WDs as more people look…

g55 overland

2005 Mercedes G55 AMG :: Classifieds

The G-Wagon, like the Toyota Land Cruiser, is considered a pinnacle overland vehicle. The Geländewagon was originally developed in Austria by Steyr-Daimler-Puch to be a hardcore military off-roader. However, in more recent years, the platform, much like the new Land Rover Defender, has become something of a status symbol and has subsequently pandered to the…

2006 Dodge Ram Power Wagon :: Classifieds

In recent years, almost all the big-name manufacturers have introduced uprated backcountry variants of their full-size trucks with heavy-duty suspension, armor, locking differentials, intelligent onboard systems, and more. However, Ram was one of the first to lean into overlanding, with their long-standing Power Wagon remaining one of the best-in-class. Amazingly, today’s 2006 model incorporates features…

2022 Ford F-250 Tremor w/ Mits Flatbed and Supertramp Camper :: Featured Classified

The Ford F-250 Tremor is undoubtedly one of the most desirable full-size platforms for overlanding. In 2022 we awarded it Full-Size Truck of the Year with Expedition Portal and Overland Journal’s Chairman and Publisher Scott Brady stating: “The Tremor won the Editor’s Choice because it delivers on everything we need a full-size truck to be:…

Tacoma TRD Off Road

2013 Toyota Tacoma TRD 4×4 :: Classifieds

The Tacoma is undoubtedly the mid-size darling of the overlanding community. Since it came to market in 1995, it has dominated the sector thanks to exceptional build quality, reliability, and capability (especially when outfitted with one of the optional TRD packages). As a result, aftermarket support is almost unmatched, with a huge array of parts,…

EarthRoamer

2008 EarthRoamer XV-LT #71 :: Classifieds

In a recent Overland Journal podcast, Scott Brady and Matt Scott discussed the Principles of Overlanding :: Expedition Campers with frequent reference to EarthRoamer. It’s a company famous for its no-expense-spared expedition vehicles, and the XV-LT is undoubtedly their most coveted model. These trucks do not come up for sale often due to their rarity…

Mitsubishi Montero

2002 Mitsubishi Montero XLS :: Classifieds

It’s safe to say that Japanese manufacturers are synonymous with reliability and build quality. Whether it’s a Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Suzuki, Isuzu, or indeed a Mitsubishi, chances are it’ll be a vehicle you can depend on (which is why I’ve just bought one). However, while used 4WDs like the Toyota Land Cruiser or Nissan Patrol…

Land Rover Discovery II

1999 Land Rover Discovery II :: Classifieds

The New Year has arrived. Before we know it, spring will be upon us, bringing longer days, warmer temperatures, and more opportunities to explore. Unfortunately, spring often marks inflated vehicle prices as the market is flooded with buyers looking for capable rigs for their summer adventures. Subsequently, winter is the perfect opportunity to grab a…

GX470 overland build

2003 Lexus GX470 :: Classifieds

The Lexus GX470 is one of the few overland platforms that provides both sumptuous refinement and bulletproof backcountry performance. In the past, these vehicles were something of an impressive value and were largely overlooked by the overlanding community. However, this has changed in recent years, with more people recognizing the vehicle’s merits. Subsequently, it’s a…

Nissan Titan

2007 Nissan Titan :: Classifieds

Interestingly, Nissan trucks seem to be somewhat overlooked by the overlanding community, despite their reputation for reliability and build quality. During our Midsize Truck of the Year gear review, Scott Brady stated: “Nissan is one of those brands that is so honest and reliable that you rarely hear a cross word said about their vehicles.”…

Citrëon 2CV 4x4

Adventure 2CV in Mauritania :: Video

The Citrëon 2CV is an automotive icon and a working-class hero. The initial concept was called the TPV and was conceived way back in 1936 with lead-engineer Pierre-Jules Boulanger requesting “an umbrella with four wheels.” In other words, a car that was simple above all else in the hope it would mobilize France’s rural communities…

Toyota Tundra

2006 Toyota Tundra 4×4 :: Classifieds

I’ve been somewhat obsessed with the first-generation Tundra ever since Stephan Edwards featured the 2005 Toyota Tundra built by Basil’s Garage. It’s an inspiring build and did a wonderful job of showcasing the potential of this relatively affordable platform (we recently featured a 2004 SR5 for just $9,000). In terms of overlanding credentials, I’d argue…

Dirt Lifestyle – Things Get Out of Control on this 600-mile Off-road Trail :: Video

In a recent Overland Journal podcast on Understanding the Overland Industry, our Chief Business Development Officer, Brian McVickers, stated that the overlanding boom is in its infancy. That statement may seem implausible considering the remarkable size of the community and industry at present. However, only recently have mainstream car manufacturers recognized the potential of the…
