The Mitsubishi Fuso 4×4 is a popular choice for overland builds and is the vehicle of choice for companies such as earthcruiser.com, sought after for its dependable common-rail turbo-diesel engine, impressive all-terrain performance, and generous 14,000-pound gross vehicle weight. This competitively priced 2007 example, showcasing a custom aluminum habitation pod (removable thanks to a simple four-bolt system), incorporates all the comforts of home and was built to be the ultimate international overland rig.
From the Seller:
“Few cab/chassis have a better worldwide reputation for overlanding base vehicles than the Mitsubishi Fuso FG140 4×4. A favourite of overlanding upfitters in Australia, the FG140 was imported in limited numbers into the US, primarily as a reliable chassis for forestry, landscaping, and snowplow vehicles.”

The FG140 showcases a 4.9-liter turbocharged diesel engine (producing 147 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque), a 5-speed transmission, and a 2-speed (high/low) transfer case. The Fuso incorporates a cab-forward design, solid axles, manual locking hubs, and leaf spring suspension. The cab is basic but practical, with an easy-to-read instrument panel, electric windows and door locks, a noise-reducing high-mount intake snorkel, a dash-mounted shifter to maximise legroom, and an adjustable steering wheel. Safety features include ABS, a crush bar in each door, an energy-absorbing steering wheel, and daytime running lights. Finally, the 2007 Fuso does not require ultra-low sulfur diesel, which makes it a great option for overseas travel.
