This was the year of the Mog at Expo for sure.

The big rigs had a big presence at Overland Expo 2013 with the Unimogs taking center stage with a big display/gathering at the center of the vendor area. The big trucks dropped a lot of jaws with their sheer size, plethora of features, luxury amenities and price tags. It is hard to define “big rigs,” but for my coverage of Overland Expo it refers to any rig that is based on a full size US pickup or larger. These rigs would have a tough time on many small third world city streets or your local tight offroad trail. Enjoy the big overland expedition rigs below.
