    Just returned from a trip to Assateague Island where we were there for a few days with our two kids and a friend with her three kids. A bit cold but honestly I love getting out there. Would anyone be up for a meetup on the beach at some point for fishing, fires, and food?

    The F150 Baja 1000 Chase / Overland Build

    This is how it all started. 2007 F150 XLT. I talked myself out of buying a Raptor because this truck was paid for and even after depreciating its value to zero and doing all the upgrades and modifications that planned, I would still be money ahead. At that time the list was relatively modest...

    2000 TJ vs F150?

    I bought the 2000 TJ with the intention of Overlanding with it but since it's been in the shop for upgrades I've been using my 2017 F150. I was wondering if anyone else has been using a full sized pickup and what you've done to outfit it to overland?
