Off-Road Trucks, 4×4 SUV & Crossovers
Volvos have always been appreciated among the fans of wagons. They’ve been a go-to choice for drivers looking for reliability, versatility and subtle European styling. Luckily this brand stays loyal to its…
When it comes to off-roading, trucks, SUVs and specialty vehicles get all the glory. But with the right modifications, even regular cars can handle surprisingly rugged terrain. Adding modest lifts, all-terrain tires, skid plates, and underbody protection transforms on-road vehicles into capable overland rigs. Crossovers like the Subaru Outback have surprising off-road chops thanks to generous ground clearance and advanced AWD.
With small lifts and big tires, crossovers tackle dirt, mud and forest trails well. For more extreme terrain, trucks like the Ford F-150 Raptor and SUVs like the Jeep Wrangler excellent offroaders, stock or modified. And vehicles like the Toyota 4Runner readily accept mods like armor, suspensions, and winches to increase capability. For part-time off-road fun on a budget, modified cars and crossovers can fit the bill.

Overland & Expedition
For those seeking adventure off the beaten path, a used overland build can provide the perfect platform. Rugged, go-anywhere expedition trucks allow you to get far into the wilderness while carrying all the gear you need to camp and live self-sufficiently. When shopping for a pre-built overlander, look for features like roof top tents, storage organizers, recovery gear and upgrades.
Truck campers are popular for their carrying capacity while vans like Sprinters and Sportsmobiles offer spacious living quarters. Sidewinders and EarthRoamers take luxury overlanding to the extreme. Do your research to find the right mix of features, reliability, and capability. Choose an 4WD overland rig based on the terrain and distances you plan to cover. Then get out there and explore the farthest reaches of the world from the comfort of your own modified camper.

For extreme off-roading, customized rock crawlers and highly modified rigs reign supreme. With massive tires, specialty suspensions, armored bodies and powerful engines, these machines conquer boulders, mud, and steep trails. Axle articulation, approach angle, skid plates and spotters are key for hardcore rock crawling. While not great for long distances, modified 4x4s can traverse incredibly tough terrain. If you crave technical off-road challenges, a custom built rock crawler is the ultimate machine.
Prerunners & Desert Builds
When speed and big air takes precedence over technical terrain, prerunner trucks and trophy trucks deliver thrilling performance. Built for high-speed desert racing, prerunners are production trucks with long-travel suspensions, beefed up frames, and ride heights optimized for whoops and jumps.
When buying a used prerunner, inspect the suspension and frame carefully. Look for signs of damage or bent components from hard landings. Test the suspension’s full travel range and shock rebound to ensure proper function. Check that electrical components and lights work reliably to avoid being stranded far from help. And take time to examine the engine, transmission, and cooling system for needed repairs or upgrades to handle desert racing conditions.
Dune Buggies & Baja Bugs
Baja bugs and dune buggies deliver big thrills at low cost. Based on air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle chassis, Baja bugs are customized with suspension lifts, big tires, and tuned engines to handle sandy trails and desert terrain. Though sparse in amenities, their lightweight simplicity provides agile handling. Dune buggies offer an open-cockpit design with tube frames and fiberglass bodies ideal for blasting across desert sands.

Expert Advice on Buying Used Off Road Vehicles
Why Buying a Modified Offroader Saves you Thousands
“Purchasing an off-roader that’s already modified can save you thousands compared to upgrading a stock model yourself. With crucial upgrades like lifted suspension, rugged wheels and tires, and protective armor already added, you get a fully loaded rig at a fraction of the cost. And you can hit the trails right away instead of spending weekends in the garage wrenching or dealing with backorders”. – Matt Grabli, Editor at Offroadium.com.
