Nissan Creates the Ultimate Off-Road Camping Rig


The Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Project Basecamp concept made its debut at Overland Expo 2017 West.

The specially modified pickup is billed as a dream project vehicle for overlanding enthusiasts and started its life as a stock Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab straight off the assembly line of Nissan’s Canton, Mississippi, factory. Powered by a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbo diesel engine, the pickup was outfitted with more than 60 aftermarket parts and accessories to create an essentially self-contained, self-sustaining “basecamp” for exploring the backcountry.

Each corner has been outfitted with 35×12.50×17 tires mounted on 17-inch beadlock wheels, while a special three-inch lift kit provides extra tire clearance. The suspension also gives an extra level of bulletproofing with air springs, an air-leveling compressor and more.

Other exterior modifications include custom front and rear bumpers, aggressive fender flares and cab-length rock sliders, custom hood, light bar and chase lights with fog and spot lights. There’s also a winch system with remote mount and quick-connect cables tucked under the custom front bumper. The exterior then received a custom vinyl wrap to give it a real personalized appearance.

From there, Nissan had to give the Titan XD the overlander survival essentials, such as a Leitner Designs Overland bed cage, Rhino Rack Pioneer rack system and Foxwing Awning, CVT Tents Mt. Rainier Stargazer tent and vestibule as well as a Black Forest portable Fridge Freezer. Other accessories include water canisters and fuel packs from Daystar, shovels, an emergency kit from ARB and more.

There is, of course, also a custom Patriot Camper X2 Off Road Adventure Trailer with matching vinyl wrap that has been configured to include everything a camper needs.

“Overlanding is an exciting form of outdoor adventuring, taking participants into sometimes extreme terrain and climate conditions,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. “We’re using the Project Basecamp to showcase the TITAN XD PRO-4X model’s potential as the perfect platform for truck owners thinking of taking their adventures to the next level.”
