See how these incredible companies get it done in the backcountry
By Jered Korfhage

The companies on these pages bring you some of the latest and greatest tools to get out and experience the outdoors. From power management, storage, navigation, and communication, to the recovery gear, tires, and winch on your rig—these establishments have you covered when you kick it into four-wheel drive and hit the dirt. And did we mention Jeep? For more than 75 years, the company has built one of the best tools for exploring off-road and we were honored to have Jeep as the presenting sponsor of the 2021 Overland Adventure. Joining Jeep in making Overland Adventure possible were American Adventure Lab, Bubba Gear, Falken Tires, Midland, onX Offroad, REDARC, and Warn Industries. Throughout Overland Adventure, each company's vehicle and wares were put through the rigors of extended backcountry travel. Read on for more on how each rig was outfitted and for a closer look at the tools that make off-grid exploration easier.

'18 JEEP WRANGLER 7 UNLIMITED RUBICON

WEBSITE: AMERICANADVENTURELAB.COM

The lowdown: Dreaming up innovative solutions for this JL Wrangler Unlimited is how Brit Mansell started American Adventure Lab. Brit is the Chief Thinkerupper” at the company and his team is dedicated to designing and building implements to streamline your next trip away from the pavement. When it was time to make camp during Overland Adventure, or even a trailside lunch, the back of Brit's Jeep expanded and transformed, revealing modular drawers that mesh seamlessly with a fridge slide, a beautifully engineered tailgate table, stealthy mounts for an air compressor, and much more. There was even a nifty platform above the spare tire for toting firewood.

'O2 NISSAN XTERRA

WEBSITE: BUBBAROPE.COM

The lowdown: Inside this supercharged and solid-axle swapped Nissan Xterra was a full load of equipment from Bubba Gear designed to get vehicles un-stuck and make recovery jobs easy and safe. Thankfully, between the skill of the drivers and the outstanding modifications, the Xterra's stash of recovery gear was left largely unused during Overland Adventure. However, the crew from Rogue Overland, who represented Bubba Gear, was glad to demonstrate the utility of the NexGen PRO Gator-Jaw Synthetic Shackles, the Bubba Rope recovery rope, and other useful tools.

The story of the invisible car and the silver Durango

My wife called it “the invisible car.” We bought it in 2002 after the third or fourth unsuccessful attempt at getting Ford to honor warranty work on her ’00 Focus ZTS. We finally gave up and traded it in on a super-low-mileage ’99 Toyota Camry.
