    Overland/Expedition build.

    Is anybody in the Wayalife community into the expedition builds?

    My jeep is a work in progress and I finally have if built enough to go about anywhere I need it to, but I'm ready to start adding the things needed to survive out of it for periods of time. Anyone else into this sort of thing? Have any neat ideas for such a thing?

    What exactly constitutes an "overland/expedition build" over just a Jeep that is already "built enough to go about anywhere I need it to"?

    I saw a video several months ago that defines "Overlander."

    Definition of "Overland" per this "Tom-Cruise-Looking-Youtuber:" Good video. I think he answers the question perfectly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvYy59pMbiA

    "Built enough to go where I need it to"- not stock. Lift. Tires. Aftermarket suspension parts. The jeep is able to go as far as I'm willing to take it. Terrain wise.

    "Overland/expedition" - traveling long distances off-road. Basically off road camping as I see it. Camping out of your vehicle. Having everything you need on board.

    Okay, so what prevents you from doing this now?

    There's tons of that kind of stuff out there. It's really up to your imagination. If you don't already know how to weld, look into doing that. The possibilities are endless when you can build your own stuff. We take camping stuff in our jeep all the time. We even have a cargo rack that goes into our hitch so we can take the kids powerwheels Jeep with us. As far as some of the ideas you have, I would look into racks. Roof rack, tire carrier with rack, hitch rack. That will expand your options.

    Hmmmm, this reminds me of another thread

    Pretty much all the jeeps on here are built with this kind of stuff in mind. I think it's the manufacturers of the "overland" products that want you to differentiate one style from another and to think their products are superior/better. Just "build" your Jeep how you want it and to get you where you want to go and don't worry about categories and labels.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
