Video: From Mild to Wild – Top 5 Cool and Outrageous Overland Expo Trucks Countdown!
Here are the top five cool 4×4 trucks from Overland Expo 2022 that show what’s possible with almost any budget.
Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Diesel
At number five is a Chevy Colorado ZR2 with a 2.8L turbo-diesel engine and light suspension. This Colorado rides on King shocks and slightly bigger tires. In the back is a truck topper with an integrated tent. It shows what is possible in the price range of $10,000 to $15,000. Ultimately, this is a very capable off-road pickup truck with plenty of torque, a front and rear locking differential, and a simple in-bed camping solution.
Ram 1500 chainring
At number four is a Ram 1500 Longhorn V8 with a suspension lift and a Bowen Customs deck and canopy system out back. This Hemi-powered truck started out with a shorter 5.5-foot bed. The Bowen Customs team replaced the stock bed with their own 6.5-foot all-aluminum bed. This solution extends the capacity of the cart without adding weight. A custom aluminum Bowen canopy goes overhead and houses a tent on top. This type of construction is between $30,000 and $35,000.
Toyota Tundra sliding motorhome
At number three is a previous-generation Toyota Tundra V8 with a flatbed and a slide-out camper on top. This is a build more geared toward camping and landing, rather than an all-purpose build. This truck has aftermarket OldManEmu suspension, off-road tires, custom bumper. This is a version between $45,000 and $60,000.
Ford F-550 pickup truck
At number two is a new Ford F-550 built by Elevation Off-Grid. These trucks ride on LiquidSpring suspension, jumbo tires, flatbeds or a custom pickup truck bed, truck rack and two tents on top. You have to see these F-550 trucks for yourself. This is a release that crosses into the $100,000+ territory.
Stewart/Stevenson 6×6 Expedition Motorhome
At number one is this 1995 6×6 military beast of a truck with a custom house in the back that included a balcony, fireplace, full kitchen, bedroom, and dance floor. It is a construction that crosses the territory of more than 1 million dollars.
