Set up camp anywhere with the 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X “Project Basecamp”

It’s for those who can’t decide whether getting to a destination or staying there is more fun

If you're a backcountry explorer, this specially modified Nissan Titan is bound to give you goosebumps.

Unveiled at the Overland Expo 2017 WEST, "Project Basecamp" has been designed as a dream project for overlanding enthusiasts who like to set up camp in areas normal vehicles can't reach.

Nissan has built the one-off project "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," in the words of Nissan North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles vice president Fred Diaz.

Project Basecamp started out as a stock Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab, powered by the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel that delivers 310 hp and 555 lb-ft (752 Nm) of torque. The large torque figure is necessary because the unique vehicle carries some 60 aftermarket parts and accessories from some of the main overlanding specialists.

The result is, basically, a self-contained, self-sustaining "basecamp" for exploring the country. The number of accessories is too big to list here (you can check it out below), so we'll only talk about the most important changes.

The truck rides on maximum off-road traction 35×12.50×17 tires fitted to 17-inch bead lock aluminum-alloy wheels, while a 3-inch lift kit offers extra tire clearance at each corner. The suspension also gains air springs and an air-leveling compressor to cope with the rough terrain. When the going gets tough, however, a winch system with remote mount and quick-connect cables is there to save the day.

And so we get to the overlanding kit, which includes (among many other things) a Leitner Designs Overland bed cage, CVT Tents Mt. Rainier Stargazer tent and vestibule, Rhino Rack Pioneer rack system and Foxwing Awning, and Black Forest portable Fridge Freezer. Water canisters, fuel packs, shovels, and an emergency kit are also provided. There's even a custom Patriot Camper X2 Off Road Adventure Trailer configured to include everything a camper could want.

Capping off Project Basecamp is a beefier look given by the custom hood and bumpers, as well as the aggressive fender flares and cab-length rock sliders. A light bar and chase lights with fog and spotlights are fitted to the Titan as well. A custom vinyl wrap puts the final touch on Project Basecamp.
