Good morning, I’m Ryan. From the Charleston SC area. New to Overlanding type of camping and travel. Not new to camping, but looking to explore and see other types of things. My rig definitely need to be multi purpose. I’m a building contractor specializing in outdoor spaces, mostly composite deck systems. So My truck is a 2016 Ram 2500 CTD crew cab long bed. I tow heavy a lot, a dump trailer, or the Super Air Nautique 226TE. So I need most of everything I build to be removable pretty quickly. The plan is a RTT, water and power systems for weekend or midweek getaways to lakes where we will be using the boat. Sites that allow offshore moring of the boat at the camp sites. Lots of the lakes around our area have campgrounds with ramps. its nice to be here to gain information to see what works best.

mods so far—

Carli Suspension—-3.25 Backcountry with Fox 2.0 resi shocks
35x11.5x20 Nitto Trail Grapplers
airlift 5000 bags in daystar cradles with onboard air.
Some front and rear lighting.

replacing soft tonneau cover with a Renegade Cover with 2000lb top capacity—-on order but 22 weeks out.
Welcome to the group! If you ever find yourself in the Memphis, TN area and need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.

I'm the newest new guy. Driving a 2021 Silverado HD Custom. I want to turn it into a reasonably priced overland vehicle for my family. I'm realizing figuring out how to outfit it is more complicated than I thought.

It doesn't have to be complicated. Just figure out what you NEED to achieve your adventure goals. Anything beyond that is optional.

Hello people. My name is Anthony Broussard and my wife is Karen Broussard. We are just getting into overlanding. We are from Lafayette LA aka Cajun Country. We drive a 2012 Ford Raptor named Rex. We are looking forward to seeing many parts of the United States in our future travels. Not sure where to start but can’t wait. Looks like this might be the place for useful info.
Hello Anthony, welcome to the OB family.

Hey guys, my name’s Lorne from Red Deer Alberta Canada. I just bought a used 2019 4Runner I plan on eventually gearing up for overlanding. First order are tires.

At the moment I’m just a “visiting member “ and plan on getting a full membership but need to know just how active are the Canadian member here.

I’ll try to post a pic of my rig (completely stock atm) but I’m not very tech so I might botch it.

Anyways, this is me. Looking forward to talking with you guys about rigs and trails and sharing some stories.
Hello Lorne, welcome to the OB family.
