    Retrofit ABS?

    So I have this build that I am planning for one day far in the future that involves putting a Cummins R2.8 engine in an FJ40 with dynatrac Jeep JK Axles (which have wheel speed sensors and disc brakes all around).

    Snek's Raptor

    Just picked up my new toy and will be slowly modding it so that it is more capable while exploring. This truck is replacing my Toyota FJ which was very capable off road. However, it was not very comfortable to drive to and from work and as my kids have grown there just wasn't much room for us...

    1999 Toyota Tacoma SR5 4WD Build (Lil' Bertha)

    So, it's been a long time coming, almost two years since I have joined OB and said I was going to start this. Things have been a bit of a roller coaster and lots of major and minor life changes delayed my plan to write most of this out as I went. But without further ado, I suppose it is time to...

    LEXpedition Overland Build Thread

    Hello all, Just starting out with my 2011 LX570. I'm hoping to build a rig that will take me (and my wife and/or kids occasionally) on some great adventures.

    What vehicle did you guys have before your current rig/build?

    Before i got into overlanding and everything i had a 2004 Ford Mustang. I never thought i would sell it but with work and everything i needed to get to work in all conditions. Sad to see it go but i wouldn't be here now if it wasn't for letting it go. Just thought i would share.

    Hello all! I recently bought a new (to me) 2009 Silverado 5.3L. I'm looking to make it an overland build.

    Sold the Rangie - now for something very different

    Which One?!

    I have such an important question that I must answer but without any real experience overlanding I am unsure how to proceed. With an extensive background in camping and hiking, I have an inclination towards an answer but would still like advice! So here is the question, What vehicle should I...

I started building in Nov of 2017 so just over a year now. I've had a few setbacks in that time, foot surgery and my mom passing where I lost time working...
