Ronny Dahl

Ronny Dahl is one of the biggest influencers in the 4x4 scene in Australia and abroad, with over 239,000 subscribers on YouTube and a cult-like fan following. Eager to get over to the biggest overlanding expo in the USA, Ronny had jumped on a plane with Justin to join the Patriot Campers USA team and to see what other top secret builds Justin has planned to unveil at the expo.

Overland Expo West

Justin will be announcing two new PCOR Supertourer builds on the Patriot Campers stand at Overland Expo West. One of them is still under wraps, and the other build is a Ford PX3 Supertourer.

Patriot Campers have already built a PX2 Supertourer back home down under, with the platform being the second most popular 4x4 in Australia. The result is the smallest and most affordable Supertourer ever built. Fitted with the same gear as the LC79 and LC200, the PX2 is a SupertourerTM through and through.

When the Patriot Campers and PCOR teams were given the opportunity to work on the PX3 in the USA, they jumped at the chance. The new PCOR PX3 Supertourer will be unveiled at Overland Expo West this month.

The PX3 is yet to launch, but you can view the PX2 Supertourer online now at https://pcor4x4.com/.

Top Secret Build Collaboration

Patriot Campers have also been involved in one of the biggest purpose-build overlanding truck builds the world has seen to date, which is set to be unveiled at Overland Expo West this month.

PCOR (Patriot Campers Off Road) is a segment of the Patriot Campers manufacturing facility in Australia, which specifically focuses on the engineering and production of purpose-built 4x4 systems for specific PCOR approved overlanding vehicles. PCOR will be assisting in this build by designing and producing purpose-built PCOR products, adding this new build to the list of PCOR approved overlanding vehicles.

Jeep's Overlanding "Wayout" Concept On Display at OX West

The Jeep Wayout Concept Is a 2020 Jeep Gladiator Turned Into an Overlanding Beast

Wayout 025.jpg

The Jeep Wayout concept is a true overlanding vehicle that takes advantage of the all-new Gladiator’s class-leading payload to allow adventure-seekers to go far off the beaten path. The Jeep Wayout is a functional concept that showcases a full roof-top tent and custom, large sprawling canopy. Make sure to stop by the Jeep display in the Quad at Overland Expo West May 17-19 at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, AZ to get the first peek at this concept vehicle that is stirring up a lot of interest in the overlanding community.

Wayout 029.jpg

Wayout’s body-armored exterior features a new Gator Green color that will be available on production Gladiator models. A custom bed rack with an integrated ladder carries the roof-top tent that sleeps two comfortably, while the 270-degree awning with amber LED task lighting helps travelers set up camp when the day is done.

For added convenience, two custom-fit auxiliary fuel tanks are integrated into the bedsides. Also, an ARB on-board air system with a body-mounted quick-disconnect air supply line allows adventurers to travel further off the grid.

Wayout 028.jpg

For additional capability, a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit increases ground clearance on top of 17-inch steel wheels that are hugged by 37-inch mud-terrain tires, providing a distinct retro feeling harking back to the original Willys pickups that paved the way for modern Jeep trucks. Furthermore, a 12,000-lb. Warn winch and Jeep Performance Parts snorkel help overcome multiple obstacles – both wet and dry.

Jeep Wayout has a custom integrated roof-rack system for packing gear up top, and the truck bed houses a Mopar/Decked bed-drawer system for added lockable dry storage on long treks. Inside, bed-lined floors, plus trimmed brown leather seats with laser-etched inserts of topographical maps, have been added.

The Jeep Wayout is powered by the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Change Your World Fund


 The Change Your World Fund was established to honor the memory of Alistair Farland (1990 – 2014), a 24-year-old Australian who believed in the power of exploration to change things. He wanted to inspire his generation to explore their world and impact their society. He believed that "pushing yourself out of your comfort zone" is one of the keys to life.


In just a short while—a few months into his overland motorcycle journey exploring the Americas—he made dozens of friends and inspired many to think beyond themselves. Although he died in an accident in fall 2014 on his journey, his passion and inspiration did not.  (Read more about Alistair HERE.)

Yamaha Introduces The Ultimate Overlanding SideXSide At OX West

Building Out The 2019 Yamaha Wolverine X2 R-Spec EPS SE Into The Ultimate Overlanding Machine With Turtleback Trailer, 23Zero Tents, Pelican Coolers, WARN Winch and more


When it comes to overland adventures, durability, reliability, and terrainability are all qualities that every off-road build should be centered around.  We found those great qualities with our 2019 Yamaha Wolverine X2 R-Spec EPS SE matched with Turtleback’s Getaway trailer, 23Zero’s Bondi tent and a handful of rugged adventure accessories from Yamaha, Warn and Pelican.

See the full build out in this year’s WEST Sourcebook available when you get to the show May 17-19, 2019 in Flagstaff.

With the ever-growing popularity of both overlanding and UTVing, it only seemed natural that we combined the two; introducing our Yamaha Wolverine X2 Overland UTV equipped with a Turtleback Getaway Trailer, 23Zero Bondi tent and collection of accessories from Genuine Yamaha, Camp Chef, MSA and Pelican.

Machines like the Yamaha Wolverine X2 R-Spec EPS SE are perfect for overlanding, due to their affordability, durability, and capability to reach destinations that even the most expensive, custom-built full-size trucks and SUV's would struggle to reach.
