About: "God made this beautiful planet to enjoy, and I enjoyed it growing up, and I am going to make sure my children do as well. The woods are the place to vacation. I just get to do it with more style than before." The Land Cruiser is explore-capable, thanks to 2 -inch Old Man Emu torsion bars and rear springs with Ironman 4x4 Foam Cell Pro shocks, 34-inch Nitto Ridge Grapplers, rock sliders and a rear bumper from Slee Offroad, and ARB locker. Up front, there's an ARB bumper with Warn 12,000-pound winch. Travel necessities include a 40-gallon Long Range auxiliary tank, dual batteries, Goose Gear rear plate with storage system, Engel fridge, HAM and CB, Front Runner roof rack, and Alu-Cab awning. Along for the journey is an airbagged Kimberley Kampers Karavan camper with leather seating, underbed heating, microwave, Weber grill, and A/C.
The 2020 Four Wheeler Overland Adventure takes place November 16-20, 2020, and will begin in Wickenburg, Arizona, then conclude in Flagstaff, Arizona. The event will include highway and backcountry driving by day led by an off-road guide, and camping at night. The expedition will feature 20 overlanding-equipped rigs, handpicked from dozens of applicants.
