Scott Brady, the founder of Expedition Portal and the publisher of Overland Journal, posted an excellent article on the Portal on outfitting a vehicle for overland travel. He covers the following:

  1. Safety Equipment
  2. Navigation
  3. Communication
  4. Tools and Spares
  5. Proper Recovery Points
  6. Recovery Equipment
  7. Loading and Lashing
  8. Light Truck All-Terrain Tires
  9. Suspension
  10. Bull Bar and Self Recovery

It’s a well thought out list. I recommend it, if you’ll be heading out into the back country. On the Expedition Portal forum other people chimed in with lists of their own. Forum member, coastsider, added a nice gear/camping/maintenance list.
