Hello everyone. Brand new member.

Retired USMC Tanker. Rode on both M60A1s and M1A1s, as well as various types of HMMWVs.

Location: Norfolk, VA.
Rig: Just picked up a brand new 2019 Toyota 4Runner. TRD Off-Road. Plan is to sell another vehicle and spend a couple thousand on initial mods. After that, evolution will be a gradual process.
No overlanding experience. I've taken tanks and hummers across challenging terrain, gotten both stuck, and pulled both out using vehicles and winches. And I've spent many a night on the fender of a tank and the inside of a Humvee. Overlanding sounds like fun - better camp chairs, better food, good company, and no body armor.

Hey everyone! My name's Max. I currently live in Oregon but I'm originally from New York. I have plenty of experience with camping and general outdoor activities, but I've only been overlanding for about a year.

I plan to do a more in-depth build thread, but the basic intro to my rig is as follow:
2000 Jeep Cherokee Classic
3.5" OME Lift
Smittybilt XRC rear bumper/tire carrier
31 X 10.50 Wrangler DuraTrac Tires
Lot's of other smaller things that I'll go into detail about in a different thread

I'm looking forward to meeting others in the community and learning more about this craft and adventure!

Hey everyone!

My name is Cassandra and I am so excited to connect with this huge community of overlanders and adventure enthusiasts.

I have a stock 2018 F150 XLT 3.5L Ecoboost with a full Tow and 4x4 OffRoad package. I named her Belle. :laughing: Simply from the movie Beauty and the Beast!

I live in San Gabriel, CA within the San Gabriel Valley near Pasadena, CA and Los Angeles, CA.

I am totally new to the world of OffRoading and Overlanding. I only recently began testing the waters joining Jeeps on day trips. I've pushed a few boundaries on what my truck could do and met just the right person along the way who told me about overlanding and what endless possibilities can come from it. Hope to Overland with some of you really soon!

Finally got a chance to sign-up and glad to be on board. I'm Francis in Los Angeles. I own a 2019 Toyota 4 Runner Off Road Premium. As of now, only mod are upgrade headlights (LED high and fogs, HID low beam, LED white/red interior lights), RCI skid plates, and C4 ladder. It's a slow process in purchasing due to doing more research. Next stop will be lifting and wheel/tire upgrade. The crew from Jimhajer Garage here in L.A. are giving me pointers on this part. However, I'm hoping folks here in Overland Bound can help guide me as well. Not ashame to say this but I very much a novice to this. Looking forward to challenge myself when going to UT for work and lot of off-roading will be required. Hoping to meet any Overland Bound members in that neck of the woods as well. Thanks again and will be looking forward in talking as well as meeting some of you!
Welcome, and you certainly in the right place as a novice. You'll find a lot of good info and good people willing to help you along the way. Don't be afraid to ask questions!

Hey everyone! I'm new to the Overlanding scene. I decided that It was time to call it quits for the long distance Harley trips and would move on to Overlanding. My wife and I are trying to start a family and she supports the idea of a built 4Runner more than my bike. I have a 2019 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium. I haven't done much in regards to modifications yet, but have upgraded all the lights, added a couple lightbars, fog lights and I am currently looking into lift and roof rack options now. I am currently living in St. Louis Missouri but I am originally from Boise Idaho and looking to move back. I have very little experience with a full rig on the trail but have a lifetime of ATV and Dirtbike trail experience. Looking forward to learning more!

Hello! I’m new to this community. I drive an 08 JKU with only Offroad mods and hardly anything that’s useful for camping. I got almost no knowledge on how to route an overland trip so here I am.
Also I purchased a membership and don’t have the badge yet. Do I have to wait for that to come to get access to the different abilities of the website?
