The sky was clear. The sun was hot. We were there, but many were not. Here's a look back at this weekend's Overland Expo PNW, hosted just outside of Bend, OR.
We made sure the display trucks in our booth were fully stocked with everything show attendees want to get their hands on. Major thanks to Ricky Forbes and Tim Muniz for loaning us their trucks and spreading the good vibes with us.
Our guy @wandertaco was highlighted at the CBI Offroad booth all weekend. Let's take a look at his Drawer System...
The new security system! Meet Camper, a road dog in training.
Our coworker and in-house photo guy Matt drives a Power Wagon, so he's always on the lookout for hot Rams in the crowd. This AEV flatbed conversion is lookin' pretty capable on 37" tires and without too many bells and whistles.
This Ram 5500 conversion from Global Expedition Vehicles is on the opposite side of the spectrum. More IS more, it turns out.
Another heavy duty Ram conversion, this time from the heavy payload specialists at Elevation Off Grid .
Even more Ram action. Our chief complaint: when you eliminate the factory pickup bed, where are you supposed to install the Drawer System?
We've always had a soft spot for older trucks. This Gen-1 Tacoma looked every bit as capable as the $100k+ builds.
Diesel? Check. Right-hand drive? Check. Matte paint and custom bits all over? Check. This Hilux sponsored by Kenda Tires is ready to get to work.
These old Sunrader campers are sweet, but require a lot of work to deliver true 4x4 performance. This example from Elevated Overland in New Mexico is at the top of our wishlist.
A restomod Jeep Wagoneer was a show favorite, right around the corner at the Global Offroad.us booth.
This race-prepped G Wagen was the main attraction at the Scheel-Mann booth. "Gute Fahrt" means "good ride," but you can share your favorite gas-related jokes with us on social media.
It wasn't all vintage rigs. Here's a glimpse at the next Land Cruiser to become available in the States.
We love seeing DECKED equipment in the wild. Our new bud Jason is a professional mechanic and had one of the cleanest Gen 3 Tacomas we've seen. He gave us a peek at his Drawer System to show off how he stays organized in the backcountry.
It ain't Overland Expo without going over the top. This 6x6 monstrosity is based on the Jeep Gladiator and was drawing crowds throughout the weekend.
This Toyota Tacoma from Stellar Built has some unusual footwear. Is this the "toe shoes" of the truck world?
We gave away product all weekend long, handing out accessories and stickers to the masses and even awarding one lucky winner with a complete Drawer System of his own. Be sure to join us next month at Overland Expo Mtn West in Loveland, Colorado from Aug 25-27.
