Overlanding high temperature has actually opened chances for mild-mannered brand names that have actually lived off-road for years to lastly obtain some limelight. Hellwig Products, a 73- year-old, family-run firm that makes towing, carrying and also efficiency suspension items. We satisfied Hellwig formerly while covering the Nissan Titan-based Rulebreaker camper and also Ultimate Parks Titan. The California-based clothing changes to Ford for SEMA with its “Possible Journey” Ranger, based upon the 2019 Ranger XLT pick-up. We’re not exactly sure exactly how economically achievable this is contrasted to several of the current VanLife gears we have actually included, however it appears rather plug-and-play by preventing a directory of customized components.
Other California-based firm Old Steel Construction looked after the construct. To update the Ranger’s chops, the store mounted a Symbol Characteristics Phase 5 suspension, and also Bushwacker Fender Flares over 17- inch Symbol Compression wheels covered in 35- inch Falken Wildpeak M/T tires. A Stiff light bar and also added Stiff LEDs over the bed assistance to maintain the Ranger from going bump in the evening. Habit Forming Desert Layouts back and also front bumpers and also a T-Rex X-Metal grille make it simpler on the Ranger when bumps do occur.
A Yakima bed shelf and also awning sustain the majority of the equipment for residing in the hinterlands, gazing with a Tepui Hybox camping tent. On a number of BedSlides listed below the camping tent, there’s a complete galley from Path Cooking area and also an ARB fridge. To access them, the hinterlanders turn out the Stiff shelf that holds 2 Specialized electrical mtb and also a fold-down table and also prep location. A GoalZero Yeti 1400 power plant and also photovoltaic panels maintain the digital juice moving, while Daystar water and also gas containers maintain individuals and also EcoBoost juice moving, specifically. When whatever else stops working, there’s a Krazy Beaver shovel to dig and also attempt out.
Hellwig credit reports LGE-CTS Motorsports for a “customized, retro-looking paint task,” possibly as a result of the paint red stripes and also pinstripes. We do not see the retro in it, however it’s still a great looking gear. We would certainly be genuine interested in figuring out exactly how the Possible Journey Ranger contrasts to the legendary Ranger Raptor off roadway if Hellwig would certainly reveal some specifications and also numbers.
