Overlanding... a popular buzzword these days when it comes to getting outdoors and going offroad. Designed to haul all your gear, food, sleeping quarters, spare parts and more what used to be camping has grown into so much more. Overlanding can be done on a budget with a rusted out old truck or Jeep and basic amenities or it can be unattainable to most as is the case with something like an EarthRoamer. There's an option for everyone and for most its finding somewhere in between, starting with a comfortable, capable 4x4 and adding the must-haves, tent, recovery gear, extra storage, mild lift kit and larger tires.
For the team at BDS, when it came time to add a vehicle to the company fleet they knew they wanted to build an overlander. Something both practical and attention grabbing, something capable off the grid or extended periods of time while being comfortable for long highway commutes. The Ford Super Duty is the perfect platform to start with, with a strong fully boxed frame, solid front and rear axles, huge carrying capacity, workhorse of a diesel motor and ample aftermarket product support. With the opportunity to get their hands on a new 2020 F350 Super Duty months ahead of the public, the team sent out to overhaul this new truck to be the first and most extreme overlanding 2020 Super Duty build to date, a project code name Project Go Beyond.
