About Xpedition Ready

Welcome to XpeditionReady.com. I am Ben Gibson, owner of Xpedition Ready LLC, or Xready for short, based in Raleigh, NC. We aim to offer the best overlanding and off-road products on the market today. We are here to help you build your dream rig, or to simply get started camping for the first time, and everything in between!

Overlanding is a new concept to the US, but has existed across the rest of the world for years. "Overlanding by definition: is self-reliant overland travel to remote destinations where the journey is the principal goal. Typically, but not exclusively, it is accomplished with mechanized off-road capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping, often lasting for extended lengths of time (months to years) and spanning international boundaries."

Xready is a family owned and operated business that strives to sell products at the best possible prices, as well as with the best customer service. We got started in early 2012 when I was working full time as a firefighter. As some of you know firefighters work a unique schedule, which allows the pursuit of extracurricular activities. Meaning, you have to work another job to make a living. I have lived a life of 4-wheeling, camping, exploring, traveling, and riding motorcycles since a young age. Through college I spent every dime I had building trucks set up for rock crawling, which led to many arguments with my then girlfriend because there was no money left to go on dates. But hey, she was patient, and stuck it out and eventually became Mrs. Gibson and is now an employee/brains of Xready; also known as Jess. 

Fast forward several years, I left the fire service from a professional standpoint, and now press head long into Xpedition Ready full-time. We are not the most computer, internet, or web design savvy so bear with us and our website problems as we continue to build the site. We offer many products that are not on our site at this time so contact us for a quote for a product you may be looking at, as well as installation.

We look forward to working with you in your pursuit of adventure!
