2021 marked the first year for the Ultimate Overland Vehicle, built by the group behind the annual Overland Expo. Last year Overland Expo tapped Toyota for its TRD 4Runner. This year, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 ATX was chosen and loaded with gear to make it worthy of the name. Despite all the aftermarket goodies, the exterior is relatively unchanged with the exception of the bed. The stock bed is gone in favor of a MITS Alloy tray and canopy topped by a solar panel. The tray holds an eight-gallon water tank, storage bins, and a full-length drawer that opens from the rear. Two Battle Born lithium-ion batteries power a CRX Domestic 110 fridge, alongside a Green Goat Outdoors Camp Kitchen, AluBox from Equipt, and Geyser Systems shower — all tucked underneath the three-foot canopy. Rigid exterior lighting, a Magnaflow exhaust, and an automatic onboard tire inflation system keep the truck running, no matter how far afield. The Ultimate Overland Vehicle will be auctioned for charity on Bring A Trailer after the 2022 Overland Expo.
