For this year's SEMA show Expedition Overland built this Orion Tundra made for overlanding.

With a name inspired by the Nordic region and the Orion constellation, the Orion Tundra began as a 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited. The Crofts approached this build with long-distance journeys and film production as top priorities. Like Simba, it has the off-roading upgrades to get to remote locations: ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2.5 Series extended travel coilover shocks up front and ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2.5 Series Omega bypass rear shocks; a CBI Offroad Fabrication Covert front bumper with a WARN Zeon 12S 12,000-lb. capacity winch; CBI Offroad skid plates, side steps and rock sliders; and an ARB differential axle breather.

A Rigid Industries light bar, fog lights and rock light kit enhance trail illumination, and Maxtrax recovery boards and a WARN heavy duty winch accessory kit are there for challenging trail situations. All are there to conquer river crossings and lava rock-laden roads on its planned 5,500-mile Nordic journey and the return trip home.

The Orion Tundra shines in its ability to support and shelter the film crew. It must operate as a mobile film production studio, so a REDARC RedVision battery management system, two Battleborn self-heated lithium batteries and two REDARC 200-watt monocrystalline solar panels provide the ability to charge camera and drone batteries, run a refrigerator and download each day’s video footage.

As the team will be in sub-freezing climates in the Nordic regions, the Orion Tundra also must provide comfortable and, most importantly, warm shelter. It has a full-size Alu-Cab canopy camper system with a Webasto Evo 40 heating system to keep the crew and video gear warm, an Alu-Cab 13.2-gallon water tank, an ARB twin compressor, a National Luna 40-liter refrigerator, four Rigid 65-inch DC scene lights and a Goose Gear interior storage system. Finally, for communications and connectivity the team added an iCOM ID-5100A deluxe VHF/UHF dual band D-STAR transceiver radio and a Starlink RV satellite kit, mounted in a 42-liter Alubox.
