Van conversions are hot this year, but we've yet to see something as huge and impressive as the Torsus Praetorian. Able to carry up to 35 passengers, this bus is powered by a straight-size diesel that delivers 240 horsepower to all four wheels. The truck is raised and offers 15 inches of ground clearance which makes it perfect for any offroad adventure. The inside is equally packed with amenities including air conditioning, adjustable seats, and plenty of storage space and overhead luggage racks to pack in all of your necessities. For when you need to take the entire office or extended family into the wilderness.
Praetorian 4x4 Off-Roading Bus
TetonX Adventure Trailer
You no longer need a big truck or powerful 4x4 to get your gear where it needs to be. Traditional trailers might be heavy and require tons of horsepower pull them up hills and down trails, but for the enthusiast who doesn’t happen to own an F350, the TetonX might be the perfect solution. With models starting around the ultralight 700 pound range, you could be hauling gear in a Prius. The secret is a savvy utilization of lightweight composite materials. And if you do happen to have some horsepower to spare, some of the heavier models will open you up to more storage capacity, and other custom features like a kitchenette, or roof mounting racks.
Each year at the annual Easter Jeep Safari our favorite off-roading automaker releases their concept designs for the future. This year, Jeep showed off seven new designs that range from vintage to modern. Our favorite was the 4Speed, a Wrangler-based designed that aims to pack all of their usual power and performance into a smaller, more light-weight package. Shortening the traditional Wrangler by 22 inches, the 4Speed sports a carbon fiber hood, fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub. A raked windshield, wider door openings and a custom built cage all lead to a design that makers dubbed "aggressively swept back."
