Hello all,

Location: Ripon, CA

Grew up in this area, spent a lot of time in the Sierra’s as a teenager with my Toyota pickup, but that was many many moons ago...look forward to getting back up there away from the hustle. I love wrenching on the Jeep and so I do all my own work...look forward to the adventure and the build of this vehicle to get out and explore...

Hello Jerry (@Kokopelli ), welcome from central Oklahoma. The Chickasaw National Rec Area is one of my family's favorite places to camp. I stayed there by myself in May and had the entire Cold Springs camp ground to myself, it was kind of eerie. I drive a 93 XJ as well, 2 door 5 speed.

Hello every body. My name is Allen. I'm very excited to have found this place and can't wait to explore with you all.

Location:Woodland Park/ Paterson, NJ
Rig: Current- 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Soon- 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon
Overlanding Experience Background: Novice. I have experience in off roading (jeep clubs etc) and hiking/camping mostly.

I have mostly experience in hiking, backpacking, and camping. I've been in multiple Jeep clubs back in the day with my 96 XJ which was my favorite thing ever (2007-2012) and got most of my experience in off-roading from that. I currently have a 2016 Grand Cherokee and love how comfortable it is. Sadly I am leasing it so I couldn't really do much to it mods wise. But I got bit by the off the pavement adventure bug recently with the new Rubicons so come November I am looking to get into a Rubicon Unlimited so this time I am keeping it and looking forward to doing a bit more overland build than a rock crawler. Luckily I found this place and glad there is a place for me to share and enjoy this new build and adventure. Cheers y'all!

Hey y’all! Scooby here from Raleigh, NC. I’m currently on my second Jeep, a red JL with a 2” AEV boost and 33’s. My jeeps mostly for hunting & fishing, but I’m hoping to start taking my family on more adventures!

New member here from south central PA, about 30 mins east of the Gettysburg battlefields. Used to be into Jeeps and rockcrawling, but a busted up neck didn't agree with all of that bouncing around. Now driving a 2015 Tacoma DCLB. Bought it bone stock about 18 months ago. It now has a small lift, 265 all terrains (soon to be 285s), a Leer topper and some other small stuff. I've also got a small sleeping platform built for in the bed. Near future plans include a rack for the cap and possibly the roof also, recovery gear and probably some sort of dual battery or auxiliary power setup as I have bad sleep apnea and need to sleep with a cpap.

Hello, I'm new to overlanding, but not new to jeeps. I recently sold my last jeep and ordered the new gladiator. So I dont have any pics yet of my rig. I look forward to start these new adventures.

Hello! I'm Dan and looking forward to being part of the community. A bit of background...

I grew up camping, fishing, and hiking, then spent 9 years in the Army. In the last 28 years since leaving the Army, I've camped and hiked when possible, often driving my old Taurus where it shouldn't be driven for solo camping. Those days are long gone. In 2000, I got an Xterra and would do the same, but could not mod it because it was my wife's daily ride. 17 years later, I got to build it out over 2 years and began taking it out. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in a fire just few months ago. So, I bought a 2004 Land Rover Discovery 2 and am starting to mod it on a fast track so I can make up for lost time. In all this time, I never knew there was an overloading community, but stumbled across it while researching mods people are doing. Some of the best info seems to come from Overland Bound, so I had to sign up.

The first picture I attached was me and my X. The second is my X after it burned. The third is the Disco 2 I just bought (stock), followed by the first mod just completed - added two radios, a new head unit, custom console, and room for switches. Got parts on the way for suspension, etc.

Hope to see some of you out on the trail!

Dan

Hello everyone,
Tony here, aka fusion94

Location: Half Moon Bay CA
Experience: I think I'm experienced, hard measurement to gauge though.

Sold my first gen Toyota Tundra (2002) two month ago and picked up a 2015 Toyota Tundra Crewmax. Old rig was setup to suit my needs but my 6 year old son outgrew the access cab. Look forward to the new buildout.

Hi everybody
My name is Michael.

Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Rig: 2018 Kia Sportage. No real plans for modifications yet besides better tires, but I love the idea of modifying non-traditional off road vehicles.

Experience: Almost none, off-roading wise. Experienced in camping, hiking, skiing, etc. what with being so close to the mountains and all.

Hey everyone!
Newcomer here. I'm from cold Duluth, MN. I have done a bit of off roading with work, but the trails here in Minnesota aren't anything too challenging. Hoping to do more.
I drive a 2009 Toyota Tacoma TRD off road. Love it to death.
