8. Ford Econoline Van
Pickup trucks and SUVs tend to make the most common foundations for overlanding builds, but a Ford Econoline van equipped with four-wheel drive can serve equally well—while providing more space for sleeping and secure gear storage inside a comfortable cabin. Unfortunately, not every build on display at SEMA arrives with a spec sheet, so some mystery still surrounds this van, which appeared to show off gear from Tuff Stuff Overland, but was actually unaffiliated with the brand.
Still, a closer look revealed dual remote-reservoir Fox shocks up front supporting the added weight of a high-clearance front bumper with winch, a roof rack-mounted tent (despite the spacious interior), awning, and ladder, plus a swingout rear bumper setup. While the wheels might come off as a bit showy—this is SEMA after all—at least the manually locking front hubs match the rims.
