The overlanding worlds’s favorite sometimes-prickly off-road expert, Andrew St.Pierre White takes you on a deep dive into the realm of 4×4 driving skills in this full-length, vintage video. Driving in all terrain types is covered, as well as driving a classic 4×4 set-up and how it differs from more modern, computer-controlled 4x4s.

A nice little video showing just how far you can take a standard Suzuki Samurai. This one lives in Panama.

This video made by YouTube user Robbie Bircher‘s dad back in 1989, offers a rare glimpse of basically stock trucks navigating one of America’s most difficult 4×4 routes, the Rubicon Trail. Along for the ride are a couple of Jeep CJs, a Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40, and an International Scout.

The pace of the video is slow but you feel like you’re there. And thankfully it’s been stabilized so you don’t have to sit through any camera shake. Really good stuff.

Another beautiful film from Petrolicious detailing one owner’s decades-long relationship with his Toyota FJ40.

Here’s a beautiful video from Petrolicious about a man who learned to drive and camp with his parents in a ’50s-era Willys jeep. He still has the jeep and the original camp trailer they would tow. This what camping and making memories is all about.
