|The Unimog is synonymous with heavy duty military truck. It's tremendous size may lead some to believe that it's not as
capable off road, but they couldn't be more wrong. The Unimog with it's portal axles, very low center of gravity, very tall
tires and good articulation and factory lockers front and rear make it perhaps THE most capable off road vehicle of all
time, in factory form. It's large size and extreme weight capacity make it particularly excellent for long distance expedition
travel. You'll see below some of the wildest expedition vehicles ever. How about taking something the size of an RV
and driving off road with it? Well that's exactly what you can do with a Unimog.
|This Unimog is owned by Michael Hisco of Oregon.
|This has got to be the ultimate expedition 4x4 of all time. At least from what I've seen. It's well designed for extreme
off road travel, while likely providing some of the most comfortable living quarters one could expect.
This rig is owned by Dan Wulfman. It's a 1550L Unimog. The rear camper area was built by Western Trucks.
Dan has his own website: Tracks -Trails. These pictures are from Unimog-Videos.
|This the trailer that usually towed behind the above Unimog. The trailer has all the comforts of home and much more. This
trailer is also self powered with 4 electric motors and steerable at low speeds.

|A 1980s Land Rover Discovery set up for the Camel Trophy in the early 1990s. The Camel Trophy is no more, but these rigs
were put through some serious hell and proved how capable the Land Rovers were. They would also be considered serious
expedition vehicles as they traverse very harsh long distances off road.
|This may not be a heavily equipped expedition Land Rover D90, but as long as were showing D90s,
I thought this was a pretty cool picture.

|This is an all new page that will showcase some of the coolest Expedition 4x4 and off road rigs.
I sometimes referr to my truck as an expedition rig. It is set up for long distance excursions
into remote areas and the unknown. It's set up to allow for fairly comfortable sleeping
arrangements and to be able carry a lot of extra camping, emergency, and recovery gear. But
some of the rigs showcased here, take it all a few steps further. I usually only camp for a few
days at a time, maybe a week at most. But some of these rigs are designed for months at a
time in some of the most inhospitapol places on earth. Toyotas are the focus of my website,
so of course, Toyotas are included here, but Mercedes Unimogs and Land Rovers are also very
popular platforms for very capable 4x4 expedition rigs, so I've decided to show them here as
well. If you have any pictures of expedition rigs that you want to share here,
please just email me.
|Land Rover. The vehicle synonymous with expeditions as we were taught in the movies and on TV and from the
Land Rover Camel Trophy. Today it's no different. Land Rover continues to build some extremely capable rigs.
Particularly in it's Defender series. Like the Unimogs, you'll see many very old Land Rovers still serving full duty as
capable expedition 4X4s, but it's the newer Defenders that I like the best. I'm still a Toyota fan at heart, but if there
was ever a 4X4 that just looked the part, it's a Land Rover Defender.
|Another "extreme" Unimog Expedition 4x4. This one was built with no cost spared. Notice the stainless steel front end, including
stainless steel water containters. This rig's website is worth visiting just to be amazed at the technology that was used to built it.
