Just make sure you have a rear recovery point. Pics show you have hooks up front.

Zill and I have straps if we need them.

Rear LSD is solid. You'll be fine for exploring.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Roof top tents don't make sense to me. You set it up, and it takes less time than a tent whatever sure, but it's attached to your vehicle and you've gotta cart it around all the time. So if you want to go somewhere, drive to a trailhead or something, you have to pack down your whole campsite just to go? With a tent or trailer you can leave your whole camp intact and just go, come back at the end of the day, no? What am I missing here?

RTT I guess makes sense if you're just on the move and not going to spend multiple days at one spot?

Yeah I really like the idea of them, but just doesn’t seem like it’d ever be the most practical option unless you’re somewhere where it’s impossible to lay out a tent or there’s several feet of snow on the ground that you can clear.

If you're overlanding, you're setting up camp for the night then breaking it down to head off to the next location in the morning. They don't make sense if you need your rig and camp is staying in the same spot for multiple days.

Overlanding being different from wheeling which is different from driving, right? :wat: :dafuq:

I wouldn't call that a language thing, it's just people making up terms to define their hobbies and try to set themselves apart from others.

It's such a bizarre set of terms :doe:

Overlanding - Am I not going over land when I walk to my mailbox or drive to McDonald's?

Wheeling - Am I not wheeling when I ride my Big Wheel or roll down the street on my rollerblades or pilot my yacht?

Off-roading or mudcamping at least make a bit more sense. :iono:

:mahtroy: 's here to argue on semantics, naturally.

But overlanding implies travel over multiple surfaces over a distance, sometimes over multiple days, at a slower speed, and typically camping is involved. Sustainablity and responsibility is also important.

It can be the same, but is generally not the same as wheeling or off-roading, which is done by goons in :jeep: and the goal is just to make a mess of everything. Their vehicles, the trails, and their pants.

Guess it depends what you plan on doing with it. Just one person, I can't see how this is any better than just sleeping inthe back of an SUV.
