Overland 4Runner - Review

2012 Supercharged 2-Door Jeep Wrangler

During my visit to Overland Expo 2017 I had the pleasure of meeting the owner from Exploration Outfitters and take a close look at their American Safari JXL bolt on kit for a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Being able to sleep in your Jeep by just popping up the roof tent on a trail and having that extra 15" would be very convenient!

1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ -Penny Pincher

In this video we meet up with an owner of a 1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ to get up and close with a build he recently finished and dubbed "Penny Pincher."  He built this Jeep on a budget and now has a very capable rig.  Join us as we talk with him about the history of buying it, his inspiration for the build and talk about many of the modifications he has done to it.


I admittedly had a blast filming this video.  Amy and her 2 teenagers (aka Pit Crew) were so much fun to talk to and hang out with while taking a close up look of their Jeep.  They have taken this Jeep from a stock Sport 2 door and turned it into a very worthy trail rig that they put to the test often.  

​​​Join us as we talk with the owners of some pretty cool rigs and take a close up look at some serious modifications. We discuss custom parts and cool accessories and let you get up close and personal with these amazing vehicles. Who knows...maybe you'll get some ideas for your rig's next upgrade!
