This is Adam’s Nissan Frontier Pro-4X build.
Adam is an industrial/commercial electrician from Los Angeles. The build suits his needs for now but he might want to install some kind of heating for better winter comfort. He is also debating getting a more family friendly off-roader.

How did you discover overlanding?
I first learned about overlanding from watch trail recon on YouTube. All the amazing places he went with his friends and the crazy good food they cooked is what got me the idea of starting. Once I went on my first trip I was hooked. Nothing better than having no phone signal or attachments to outside the moment. Being able to explore the USA off road and go places people don’t even know existed is something so special to me. Now that I have a little one of my own I plan to share the adventures with him.
What is your favorite piece of overlanding gear you have?
Favorite gear would be the roof top tent. Sleeping on the ground s*cks lol.
Why do you overland?
I keep overlanding because I like exploring what I haven’t and finding new places to enjoy away from the general population.
Let Adam know what you think of his build or if you have any suggestions for a family friendly off-roader and follow him on the socials!
