I am wanting to build a overland adventure rig out of my Subaru XV. I am considering the following stages for the mods necessary for an on road off road rig with living out of the vehicle for several weeks.
Stage 1: protection
Stage 2: Racks
Hitch mount to carry: 2 spare full size tires, 40L water, 40L fuel
Roof rack mount: canoe, 2 bicycles, 140L dry bag
Stage 4 Lifestyle
Portable fridge, tent, sleeping bags, stove, cookware
Stage 5 Lighting
20in, 2 X 40in rigid industry light bars, upgraded fogs
Stage 6 wheels and suspension
16in wheels with big all terrains, 2in lift
Stage 7 Safety and recovery
warn bumper winch, full med trauma kit, mantrax
I am in the planning phase right now and would greatly appreciate any advice on any part of the above mentioned stages so I can build up the best overland rig.
Thanks to all
