Off Road & Overland Preparation

Off road & expedition preparation of 4×4 and overland vehicles is what we really passionate about.

We can build and modify your vehicle to suit all types of off-roading and overlanding. From gentle green laning to the freezing temperatures of the arctic circle.

We understand  handing over your pride and joy can be a daunting prospect. However, you have the reassurance and confidence in our ability to prepare your vehicle to the highest standards.  Vehicles prepared by us have travelled to the Arctic Circle, Iceland, Finland, Norway, Sweden , North Africa, The Sahara, Australia, Malaysia and competed in the Croisse Blanc. We have  firsthand experience of not only preparing vehicles for these challenges, but also using them in these environments.

Feel free to call us to discuss anything and everything to do with overlanding and vehicle preparation. Let us advise you what works best, what doesn’t and what areas of the vehicle to spend your money on to get the best from your budget.

Some of the examples of the types or work we carry out.

Suspension Systems

Air Locking Differentials

Raised air intakes

Roll Cages

Electrical Systems

Winches

Winch Bumpers, Under Body and Side Protection

Everything Else

Suspension Systems

2nd only to tyres, the importance of having the correct suspension system cannot be under estimated.  We supply the full range of Old Man Emu and Pedders suspension. Notice we use of the word suspension system. The whole suspension system has to work as a whole. We see so many people fit totally mismatched components to their vehicles. Whether that’s selecting springs that are inappropriate to the weight of the vehicle or choosing incorrect length shock absorbers with the wrong type of mountings. With so much choice in our range, we can design the right suspension set up to suit your exact needs.

Air Locking Differentials

For when the going gets really tough, nothing beats having air locking differentials fitted to your 4×4. Giving your 4×4 true 100% traction for the most extreme conditions and cross axled situations. We supply top of the range air locking differentials from  ARB & Ashcroft Transmissions.

Raised air intakes

For deep wading and to provide clean air in dusty conditions, a well designed raised air intake is essential. A raised air intake protects your engine, so it’s not something you want to be skimping on. We supply world class raised air intakes from Safari Snorkel. Safari Snorkel’s are fully researched and developed to provide free, unrestricted air flow. There are many poorly designed cheap copies of Safari Snorkels on the market, these are poorly designed and made from inferior materials. Don’t risk your engine.

Roll Cages

We supply and fit the full range of Roll Cages from Safety Devices. In our pinion they are the best cages on the market. They fit perfectly, providing a close fit to the vehicle body. As you would expect from a company that predominantly operates in the international motorsport industry, all Safety Devices roll cages are made from the finest grade tube to the same specification as used in motorsport applications. This gives you a roll cage that is as light as possible, whilst still retaining the required strength in the unfortunate event of it been called upon.
As we have all seen, there are many cheaper roll cages on the market, but these are usually, shall we say a “loose fit”, with ridiculously large gaps between the roll cage and the body work. To keep the costs down, they are made with lower specification tube, for the tube to be the required strength for a roll cage, the tubing has to be a larger diameter with a thicker wall thickness making it too heavy, affecting not only the mass of the vehicle, but also the handling characteristics with most of the roll cages weight high up on the vehicle.

Electrical Systems

One of the essentials on any overland vehicle is the need for reliable electrical power. Lighting,  refridgeration, navigation systems, computers, the ability to charge camera batteries and phones. We supply and fit everything from dual battery systems, split charge systems, inverters, solar panels, interior and exterior lighting, fridges. In fact, anything electrical.

Winches

Like a fire extinguisher, a winch needs to work when you need it, without fail. We supply Warn winches, which are without doubt, the best on the market. Warn winches have many innovative and unique features, all backed with an industry leading warranty.

Winch Bumpers, Under Body and Side Protection

Protecting the underside of your 4×4 is one of the basics of off road vehicle preparation. We supply and fit the full range of underbody protection including steering guards, diff guards, transmission gaurds and fuel tank guards. We also supply and fit heavy duty front and rear bumpers, including those suitable for winch mounting.

Everything Else

Everything else you can think of that you think you may need on your vehicle. Anything to suit your unique requirements. Storage solutions, tyres, roof racks, we can supply and fit anything you need to prepare your 4×4 for overlanding.  Just give us a call to discuss anything you require.­­­­­
