Overlanding is exploding in popularity these days, and for good reason. Everyone loves the great outdoors, so why wouldn’t you want to explore it in a truck equipped to go anywhere? Packed with everything you need to survive for weeks on end, these trucks are the very definition of self-sustaining. And if you don’t want to do all that work yourself, this well-prepped 2002 Ford Excursion we spotted in the Ford Truck Enthusiasts Marketplace is a nice turnkey solution.

For starters, this Ford Excursion packs everyone’s favorite modern diesel – the 7.3-liter. So, you know it’ll run for a long time as well as provide enough power to conquer any obstacle. To take it to the next level, however, the seller has added a host of aftermarket parts. It all starts with a 6-inch lift, which makes room for nearly new 37-inch Toyo Open Country tires mounted on 20-inch Anthem off-road wheels.

4.30 Yukon gears give this Ford Excursion a little more power down low, and fresh brakes bring the large package to a halt quickly. Most everything else mechanical has been gone through, including the transmission, air conditioning, radiator, and alternator. And goodies like the roof rack and swing away ladder make it perfect for camping out in the wilderness.
