    Let's see all those cool off road vehicle pictures. Post pics of your Jeeps, trucks, Land Rovers, Humvee's, etc. The dirtier the better!

    Here's a cool picture of the AEV Ram to get this thread started.

    It has definatelly given me the desire to do more roadtrips/car based vacation... Just cant get the wife to sleep in a tent... Shes more of a 'glamper' and not a camper...

    I have the same problem. I do own a travel trailer, but that's not really camping IMO. I would love to have a Jeep with a rooftop tent some day.

    Something like that would be awesome... I'm also thinking about maybe a landcruiser, we have these as camper-versions in europe or some kind of pickup with a camper-thingie for the truck-bed...

    Roof top tent is on my list. I've been building a micro overland trailer to take wheeling with me and think about a rooftop tent on it.

    Some of the hard-shell roof tents are super nice. Easy to deploy and stow, plus they have a built in mattress. Plus, I like the idea of being elevated off the ground. Fewer pests to deal with and you get a better breeze.

    I've recently injured my back and have found it a little rough backpacking, which is sad because backpacking is something I love doing. Anyone that knows me personally can attest to how frequent I'm playing in the backcountry. I've been forced to figure out a way to still be able to get out into the middle of nowhere and do my thing. The answer was simple; build a rig that can go places most others can't. It will be a long-term project, but damn its fun to go overland . The wife has gotten onboard 100% cause now she can bring the luxuries out camping.

    @Desertratt1322 that Bronco should be quite a beast on the trails. Does it have a 302 or 351?

    5.0L V8, which i believe is the 302. Believe it or not it use to be a Eddie Bauer Edition but the guy who had it before me just abuse the hell out of it. Good think is I bought that one and a 89 Ford Bronco for only $800.00.

    I love overlanding, especially the gear. Seeing how everyday items and conveniences are redesigned and compacted into a vehicle-borne platform is impressive. Here's my yet to be too modified rig, 2015 Tacoma...

    Love the roof tent. Can a 6' foot tall person lay stretched out inside?
