Pack­ing the pages with the coolest rigs of Over­land Expo West

OVERLANDING IS ALL ABOUT THE AD­VEN­TURE. It is the joy of get­ting out there, go­ing places, and see­ing the world (or your lo­cal stomp­ing grounds) with the help of a ve­hi­cle. The 2018 Over­land Expo West show at Fort Tuthill County Park, out­side Flagstaff, Ari­zona, gave us the chance to have our own ad­ven­ture—nav­i­gat­ing the crowds of khaki-clad over­land en­thu­si­asts and the ma­chines they rely on.

We spent two days at the show in search of overlanding cre­ations. What we found amazed us. The event drew ve­hi­cles rang­ing in size from sedans to apart­ment units on mil­i­tary tires. Some ma­chines were packed for the week­end, and oth­ers had a pay­load of gear to sus­tain a fam­ily for a trip around the globe. Strap on your sa­fari hat and ex­plore the fol­low­ing pages for some of the more no­table cre­ations we found at the show.

-> The folks at Tudo Rack had a cou­ple sur­prises for us. First was a les­son in lin­guis­tics—tudo means “every­thing” in Por­tuguese. Sec­ond, the com­pany’s ’88 Cherokee was pow­ered not by the tra­di­tional in­line-six, but by a Volk­swa­gen 1.9L TDI en­gine.
