Start Your Build from the Ground Up with a Superlift Suspension

When it comes to building out a vehicle there are lots of opinions about where to start, from skid plates to snorkels to solar, but I decided to start from the ground up. With a new Superlift three-inch suspension lift, I headed deep into the Sonoran desert to put my Tacoma to the test.

Claymore Lights Will Change the Way You Think About Camp Lighting

The Claymore line of area lights, headlamps, and battery-powered fans will change the way you camp. Each Claymore light and fan doubles as a battery bank to charge your phone, GPS, or other USB devices. We put the new Claymore Ultra+II, 3FACE mini, and V600 to the test on the Alpine Loop in Southwestern Colorado.

Garmin’s Overlander Makes Winging It Easier than Ever

There are many gadgets that offer the same benefits as the Garmin Overlander. Few, if any, have them all packed into one hardy, quick, and easy-to-use package. If off-road turn-by-turn navigation is something your overland journeys are missing, consider picking up the Overlander.

Gear Chronicles: One Man’s Quest for Fire

The Original Fire Reflector by MC Ranch Overland concentrates heat and light back onto the user. It also helps conserve resources as wind is blocked and doesn’t burn the wood faster. Above all, it fosters a sense of community by creating a space that people want to be around, where they talk, share stories, and create memories.

Bring Out Your Inner Gourmet with a Dometic Fridge

When it comes to overlanding fridges, there are tons options from a multitude of brands. Few, however, are as well known and highly regarded as Dometic. Its latest model, the CFX3 35, is a standout. So, we decided to take it on an adventure to see if it is as great trail as it is on paper.

Liberate the Roof. Mount Your Tent on the Trailer Hitch.

Rooftop tents are awesome. They provide an easy-to-use and comfortable sleeping platform for virtually any overland rig. They have one potential downside, however: accessibility. Being high off the ground means that not everyone (or every creature) can easily access them. Rubicon Expedition Products’ Hitch Tent System aims to eliminate that downside forever.
