The Gear We Use

General Tire Grabber X3


After a great run with the General Tire Grabber AT2, we were stoked to try out the new Grabber X3. Engineered as a mud terrain tire, the Grabber X3 has all the grit needed for off-roading in the mud, dirt, and rock. With wider siping, these tires allow for an aggressive [...]

CBI Off Road Front Bumpers


When thinking about building an overlanding vehicle that also doubles as your grocery-getter, soccer-practice-dispatcher, and the in-law’s chauffeur, you need a rig that isn’t overloaded with constant extra weight. So when building our new X3 Tacoma, we took into consideration the option of the Aluminum Gen 3 Front Bumper from CBI [...]

General Tires Grabber AT2


We’ve run General Tires from Prudhoe Bay to the Darien Gap. Let that sink in for a moment. The furthest between two points you can get on the North American continent.  They’ve endured some of the roughest roads in the world, incredibly technical terrain in parts-unknown, and perhaps what’s most-relatable, week-in [...]

Adventure Trailer Drawer Systems


When you’re on an expedition, or an extended overland journey, your vehicle is your home, except it’s a lot smaller. With no separation of living, eating, and sleeping space, every inch counts. And if we’re being honest with you, though we try hard, some of our team members aren’t the most [...]

CBI Off Road Rear Bumpers


You’re halfway through a notoriously rocky trail with your suspension is completely flexed-out. Your 4X4 is leaning so far back you think it’s going to do an endo, and the worst happens: you destroy a tire on a jagged rock. We’re not talking something a puncture kit and a compressor can [...]

Bushwacker Fender Flares


We get more questions about the pre-production Bushwacker Fender Flares for our Toyota 4Runners than any other item on the vehicle, bar-none. Most of that is probably because you couldn’t actually buy them—until today that is! Bushwacker has just announced that they’re putting fender flares for the 2014-2016 Toyota 4Runner into [...]

ICON Stage 7 Suspension


Somewhere on a rugged dirt trail in Baja, we realized how good we had it. It wasn't the fish tacos or the beautiful scenery and people we'd been enjoying that made us come to this revelation. It was, to be honest, a combination of potholes, speed bumps, and Baja's infamous whoops. There [...]

Toyota 4Runner Trail Edition


The Toyota 4Runner is one of the few remaining body-on-frame SUVs in the United States, so when we started looking for two vehicles to add to the Expedition Overland fleet, they were at the top of our list. When you pair rugged construction, legendary Toyota reliability (that we’ve now tested at [...]
