Great looking VWs. I've got a '74 in the garage that I just finished putting the engine back in. Can't wait to see more of what y'all do!

Welcome!
Lots of custom design and fabrication in the offing.

Years of overlanding and frustration with the limits of equipment and freedom of design in Europe.

The US and Australian markets have so much to offer so I will be taking inspiration from there.

I have sence shiftrd over to the H3 working on it as a stand alone overlanding vehicle for just the wife and I.

Newer member. Located near Omaha Nebraska. Started overlanding last summer and have learned a lot since. Made a trip to Colorado and South Dakota so far. I have a few trips planned this year and I am looking forward to getting out and exploring. My vehicle is a 2002 Supercharged Mercedes ML320 with a small lift and 32's. My project started getting more attention than I thought it would so I started a dedicated Instagram page @MercedesOvrLnd. Saving up for custom bumpers and some other small things but It has been a fun project!

I am a new member to Overland Bound and definitely a novice to overlanding. Your Rig is really interesting because you don't see too many ML320 overland builds. I am looking forward to following your build. I tried to find you on Instagram but i could not find you, so I will just keep an eye for your post on the forum.

The link should bring you to one of my images. There is a few people that have built more off road oriented MLS but none used for Overlanding. It’s been a fun build so far but everything is from scratch because these have no aftermarket parts available. Let me know if that link does not work. Thanks!

Thank you! We are following you now! Our Jeep Cherokee is the complete opposite in regards to availability of aftermarket parts. We have a lot to choose from. We look forward to following your build.
