The Overlanding Goal
When Sam reached out to DV8 Offroad, their goal was crystal clear – to transform the Bronco into an overlanding beast that would conquer the rugged terrains of Colorado, their home state. Colorado is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, and it's no surprise that Sam and Matilin want to put their vehicle to the test here.
Colorado boasts some of the most breathtaking off-roading and overlanding trails in the country. From the iconic rocky paths of Black Bear Pass, where adrenaline meets awe-inspiring vistas, to the serene, remote trails that wind through the Colorado wilderness, this state offers an adventure at every turn. What is your favorite trail in Colorado?
From Build to Show
DV8 Offroad saw something big in this project and suggested a cool idea: "Why don't we make the Bronco awesome and show it off at Overland Expo?" Overland Expo is like the super-duper gathering for off-roading and camping enthusiasts. It's where people who are really good at this stuff teach you how to do it, and you get to see all the best camping and vehicle gear in one place.
Think of it as a super-sized store for all things off-road and camping, where you can find the best brands and products. DV8 Offroad's Bronco was going to be right there, at the heart of this big event, showing everyone what it could do. It was a chance too exciting to pass up!

Time as the Only Challenge
Just three weeks before the big event, Sam and Matilin reached out to us for help with their Bronco project. They didn't even plan to showcase it at the show initially, which added an extra challenge because time was super tight. But here's where DV8 Offroad shines – our shipping is lightning fast. To make things even more exciting and maybe stressful, Sam and Matilin had just purchased a new house and got the keys on the same day the DV8 parts showed up.
So, picture this: Sam, eager to get things rolling, had to install these parts right in the driveway of their brand-new house. It must have looked pretty wild to the neighbors, seeing this guy turning their Bronco from stock to then having all these aftermarket parts and accessories, while they weren't even moved in yet.
It all came down to the day before the show, the wheels and tires finally showed up. While DV8 Offroad products dominate this build, it's not just about the us. The Bronco sits atop beefy Toyo Open Country M/T 37" tires, mounted on Black Rhino Wheels, ready to grip and go wherever the trail leads.
We're proud to have played a role in Sam and Matilin's journey, from a spontaneous idea to showcasing their Bronco at the incredible Overland Expo. We're not just about selling products; we're about helping everyday folks like you turn their ordinary Ford Broncos or other off-road vehicles into awesome machines ready for adventure. So, what's your adventure waiting for? It's time to take your vehicle to the next level with DV8 Offroad.
