We purchased the Mitsubishi L200 as another platform that had huge potential to be a reliable overlander.

When we acquired the L200, it had been dressed in all of the accessories from a chrome catalogue.

It very quickly started to change. We replaced the wheels and tyres, de-chromed, added a canopy and snorkel and upgraded the interior sound deadening.

It was at this point that the real work started, as we had to prepare for a UK adventure! So we made a double roof rack and refurbished the canopy, along with a few suspension upgrades.

 

After a successful shakedown of the racks in the Lake District (UK), we started to prepare for a European overlanding adventure. This included building fully fitted full length drawers for the bed; building a battery and storage box to replace the rear seats; installing a dual battery system with inverter; installing an awning and a fridge.

This set has worked perfectly for us so far. Since our two big adventures, we've added sign writing and made a small change to the rear rack to remove flex.
