Bronco’s Raptor, likely the most extreme version of the Ford’s new 4×4 SUV line, is ostensibly. not build for overlanding. But that didn’t prevent us from trying.
The ARB ZERO 47QT delivers the excellent performance I would expect from a brand known for providing quality overlanding equipment for nearly 50 years.
The 23Zero Peregrine 270 is a solidly constructed awning that provides a massive amount of shade for a reasonable price. With its five arm, 270 degrees of coverage, you get shade on one whole side of your vehicle along with your tailgate.
Gazelle’s T4 Hub Tent Overland Edition is a quick-deploying tent with lots of interior volume and enviable headroom. In its base form, it pops up in around a minute and folds away nearly as quickly. However, it isn’t without its foibles.
I’ll admit that I went into my Lightning loan expecting it to fall flat. Instead, Ford’s latest pure-electric pickup proved to me that EVs are indeed ready to take on overland adventures — albeit carefully orchestrated ones.
