What does it really take to go overlanding?

From a stock car to a heavily modified trail machine, overlanding is an adventure all can participate in. Many adventurers will ask “What do I need to do to my vehicle to go overlanding?”, the answer is simple. Go on an adventure. Get out there and experience for yourself where you should focus your modifications. For some, that may be a focus on comfort and amenities, while others may focus on suspension upgrades and armor. It all depends on what experience you are searching for.
