overland gear

Willys (pronounced , "Willis" ) was a brand name used by Willys–Overland Motors, an American automobile company, founded by John North Willys. It was best known for its design and production of World War II era military jeeps (MBs), Willys M38 and M38A1 military jeeps as well as civilian versions (Jeep CJs), and branding the 'jeep' military slang-word into the '(Universal) Jeep' marque.

    What’s a good CB radio to get? I figure the antenna is about the same no matter what but I’d like to invest in a good CB on top of having my Ham license.

    For those of you with RTTs with a left or right opening, which do you choose?

    So I always have the ladder on the drivers side because that puts me closer to the driver side door in case of...I don't know, quick escapes? Anyway, I'm looking at getting a trailer so I'm thinking about switching it because trailer door openings are always on the passenger side. Kind of made...

    Mid height bed rack on DCLB

    Hey guys, If anyone has side shot photos of their DCLB mid height bed rack, post them up! I’m looking at @upTOPOverland_Drew but can’t find a single side shot for a long bed. I don’t want the bed rack to look too small for the bed.

    Rockpals Fridge

    Some may be familiar with their battery packs but Rockpals is now producing refrigerators. This is ~27 liters and fits perfectly on a little platform I made to replace the 40% section of the rear seat in my Tacoma.

    ARB Onboard Compressor

    Not sure if this has been discussed before but for those seeking the convenience of onboard air both ARB and Slee Off Road have a perfect solution. Slee makes a mount that sits in the empty space on the passenger side just ahead of the firewall. It will support a single compressor or the twin...

    DIY Camp Shower

    Was looking for camp showers and stumbled across an idea for this. Most on the market were either absurdly expensive or cheap and cant be trusted. I've tried the bag showers in hunt camps before. Cold, no pressure, dont hold much water and about as durable as wet toilet paper. This thing cost...
