The NW Overland Rally, held outside of Leavenworth, Washington, is a place where overlanding enthusiasts from across the Pacific Northwest (and sometimes from much further away) come to camp, talk travel, check out the latest gear for their vehicles (and campsites), and take classes from experts in their respective fields.
There were classes in everything from vehicle recovery and navigation, to wilderness first-aid and off-road driving. There were even classes on fly fishing, wine, and cooking. Bushwacker had a booth showcasing its array of products, and we met a host of new customers, old friends, and everyone in between.

What would you do with a Jeep Wrangler that was the length of a pickup? We recently asked ourselves this question as we unloaded a Brute double cab kit from AEV Conversions. Our first inclination was to prep it for serious off roading; so we paired it with a 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon to take advantage of the hardcore 241Rocktrac transfercase.
If you’re not familiar with the Jeep JK Brute kit, it stretches the JK’s original frame 23″ for a total wheelbase of 139″, and adds an injection molded composite bed to the standard JK double cab. Designed to be an overlander’s dream, the Brute double cab draws its inspiration from the Land Rover Defender 130.
