2021 Toyota Tacoma

September 23rd, 2021|

We have built several eye-popping trucks over the past decade at X Overland, but Atigun is the true show-stopper! Beyond her good looks, however, are state-of-the-art features and technology that make Atigun our best film production vehicle to date, the “ultimate production headquarters” as Clay is fond of saying. 

2022 Toyota Tundra

May 18th, 2022|

Orion represents the state-of-the-art in Toyota engineering! The 2022 Tundra is the 3rd generation of its namesake and is all-new from the ground up. With more power and improved fuel economy made possible through Tundra’s all-new i-FORCE 3.5L Twin-Turbo V6 Engine we will be able to push out our overlanding boundaries even farther. The promise of Orion is more performance and capability than we have ever experienced and we can’t wait to get this truck out on the trail!

The Clone is frequently tasked with towing the Patriot Camper during expeditions, a fact that makes her always the center of camp life!

2018 Toyota Tundra CrewMax

July 30th, 2019|

If you’ve seen the ‘Matrix’ then you may remember ‘Trinity’. One of our favorite characters of all time, Trinity is a no-nonsense, get the job done kind of woman. She adapts, is in control, and runs toward a challenge. The Tundra for us was explicitly built for maximum efficiency for filming, which means a lot of battery power and organization of camera equipment. She is comfortable and is willing to meet any challenge head-on despite her size.

2016 Toyota Tacoma Build

December 9th, 2016|

When it comes to a vehicle that’s going to reliably get you into the backcountry, and back out again, it’s always been hard to beat the Toyota Tacoma. That’s why at Expedition Overland, we’re on our third Tacoma—we’ve put every generation through their paces in our adventures from Prudhoe Bay to the Darien Gap and a whole bunch of America in-between. The all-new 2016 Tacoma shares some of the familiar bits we loved about the our previous Tacomas, with a slew of improvements, new rugged styling, and a fuel-efficient 3.5-liter Atkinson Cycle engine.

2018 Dodge Ram 3500 AEV Prospector

Outfitted with a 4Wheel Camper Hawk Edition pop-up, it tows the Patriot Campers Toy Hauler (TH-610) with the Polaris General 1000 and is ready for just about anything you can throw at it. This build is Clay’s go-to setup when he wants to get out of town and into the woods quickly and efficiently, but is also incredibly comfortable and spacious for more family-oriented trips.

2016 Toyota LandCruiser

August 1st, 2019|

Samson is like the big fluffy pillow you want to lay on after a long day. However, don’t let his plush demeanor fool you, he will get you up steep hills, rock crawl like a boss, and pull trailers like they’re not even there. Dependable, yet refined, there’s a reason why the rest of the world depends on Land Cruisers…(Also the official napping vehicle for those tired camera guys.)

Polaris General XP 1000

March 5th, 2021|

This Polaris Side By Side is a micro machine for micro adventures and overland trips! We love this vehicle for exploring those hard to reach areas.
