Front Runner Vehicle Outfitters - Adventure and Overland Gear

A quick search online and you will find a plethora of roof racks and accessories promising to enhance your overlanding experience. So, how do you know which roof rack to choose?

If you’re looking for a roof rack, you will likely be looking for a durable option that can withstand wear and tear on the road. Several decades ago, a group of South African friends was looking for just that, a roof rack designed with off-roading and overland in mind.

Those friends started Front Runner Vehicle Outfitters and began designing roof racks, accessories, camping gear, cargo storage, prep tables, and more with top-of-the-line materials. 

With their experience overlanding in difficult African terrain, Front Runner was founded to provide top-quality, durable gear designed by people who know what overlanders need.

With so much adventure gear on the market, we will briefly break down some of Front Runner’s top products and provide some recommendations.




What Makes Front Runner Different

One of Front Runner’s most popular products is its Slimline II roof rack line. With specific designs for a variety of SUVs, Jeeps, and trucks, the Slimline II cargo roof rack can be mounted to existing mounting points on your vehicle.

Made of aluminum and stainless steel, Slimline II roof racks are designed to last and look low-profile on your vehicle, making them perfect if you also use the car to travel around town.

Front Runner’s roof racks aren’t just for cargo, and their versatility allows them to be used in many applications. 

The Front Runner Roof Top Tent fits perfectly on any Frontrunner roof rack and sleeps up to two people comfortably. These tents are built light and tough, making them a durable option that won’t mess up your mpgs. These Frontrunner tents are also waterproof and water-repellant making it a great rooftop tent for overlanding trips in any weather.

If you are looking to expand your cargo storage capacity, the Front Runner Wolf Pack is a great option. It’s versatile and made of high-strength plastic and fits perfectly with Front Runner’s complete storage system or as standalone storage.

For the complete Front Runner camping package, the company also produces high-quality camping gear. 

The Front Runner Expanding Camping Chair is built to last with high-quality materials, and it is extremely compact and easy to transport. Another great piece of camping gear is the Front Runner Pro Stainless Steel Prep Table. Sturdy, lightweight, and made of high-quality steel, this table is perfect for preparing and serving food.

Overall, you can see a pattern developing: Front Runner designs great roof racks, accessories, and camping gear designed by overlanders, for overlanders.
