When you take your four-wheel-drive (4WD) truck or SUV
off-road, there is a whole new world to see and experience.
The off-road community is huge and welcoming, and there are
lifestyle shows to attend and trail-driving events to experience. With seat time and practice, your technical skills will improve.

However, do you really want to head into the forest
blindfolded? Driving off-road requires much more attention,
skills, discipline, and preparation than merely driving around
obstacles. Being fully armed with information regarding the
most updated techniques is critical for today’s motorized off road driving enthusiasts.

The Ultimate Off-Road Driver’s Guide covers topics about
what to bring along for a trail ride and how to interact with other trail users. This book covers the various 4WD systems and
how they work, how to drive on various terrain (mud, sand,
snow, and rocks), and what to do when encountering each of
those elements. An entire chapter is devoted to getting unstuck. Covered also are ways to communicate when you lose cellular phone coverage as well as navigation options so that
you don’t end up lost and on the local news channel.

This book is mandatory preparation for your off-road toolbox!

• Millions of enthusiasts own Jeeps, Broncos, and other
4WD vehicles

What is overlanding? Wikipedia states, “Overlanding is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, it is accomplished with mechanized off-road-capable transport (from bicycles to trucks)where the principal form of lodging is camping. It often lasts for extended periods of time (months to years) and spans international boundaries.”

verlanding did not originate in America, and it is a little different here. You would be hard-pressed to find a bicycle out in the desert, and most people don’t go overlanding for quite that long. However, the spirit of the activity is the same.

Do you want to give overlanding a try? Great! You will need some gear.

In The Overlanding Vehicle Builder’s Guide, veteran racer, off-roader, and journalist Don Alexander provides a terrific overview of what to consider when building your overlanding rig. This includes the planned duration of the trip, the numberof people in your party, how far off the beaten path you want togo, and the creature comforts you require.

Understanding those wants and needs shapes what gear you need for the best experience. Covered are the strengths and weaknesses of the types of vehicles themselves, modifications to the vehicles to make them more capable, accessories(lighting, camping gear, food, and water storage, etc.), and equipment for trail mishaps and recovery. Driving techniques and trail rules and etiquette are also included.

If you are ready to build a rig or just want to know more about the hobby, this book is a great guide to help you g
