Adventure XT is a Ram HD Chassis Cab RV on Steroids: These are Self-Contained Overland Machines

For a select few, owning an ultra-capable overlanding truck like an Adventure Truck or the Adventure – XT is a dream. Priced from the Adventure Truck’s $198,000 to $340,000 for the Adventure – XT, these are serious off-road strucks for serious money.

While those prices seem lofty, they are far less expensive than comparable from Earth Roamer. Keep in mind: these vehicles are overbuilt and manufactured to withstand extreme conditions for prolonged periods of time.

The Ram HD chassis-based rigs you see here have a suspension lift and ride on 40-inch tall tires. The 6.7-liter Cummins I6 engine and transmission remain stock. Up front, there are AEV steel bumper with a 16K winch and a snorkel with a filter to get some clean air to the engine.
