Overlanders: Phil Cooper, Meghan Cooper and Erin Cooper
Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-350 SuperCab shortbed
About: “I love off-roading, camping and nature. I work in a very stressful job and it gives me that much-needed breath of fresh air.” Phil’s ride is this F-350 SuperCab short-bed with a 7.3-liter Power Stroke (yes, you read that right) monitored by an Edge Insight CTS3 unit. Truck additions include an ICON suspension and heavy-duty track bar, Buckstop Baja front bumper with 12,000-pound capacity winch and dual swing-out rear bumper with the spare, as well as AMP research steps. The 35-inch tires hug 17-inch Black Rhino wheels. The PIAA lights are controlled by a Trigger 6 Shooter wireless switch module. The Coopers also travel with water jugs, a battery-powered shower, a propane tank for the ARB BBQ and rooftop tent heater, and a bunk bed toolbox with two ARB air compressors for ARB air lockers. There’s also a Yakima OverHaul HD bed rack, RotopaX fuel packs, Hi-Lift jack and other tools, backup cameras, Kenwood sound, and more.
