One of the best parts of the four-wheeling hobby is that there is no right or wrong vehicle to own. From everyday pickups to turnkey buggies, every 4x has its rightful place, and most are as unique as the people who drive them. While we can't say that Bryan Zeigler's digital camouflage wrap helped him blend into the Tennessee forest, it worked perfectly to grab our attention and make us take a closer look at his very custom '92 Geo Tracker.

Modified by the crew at Liberty Overland in Albany, Oregon, this trail-capable Tracker is built for any adventure, big or small. Though the lightweight two-door might not seem like the perfect cross-country wheeler, that's exactly what Bryan built it for. In fact, shortly after completing the build Bryan hopped behind the wheel and piloted the V-6-powered Geo all the way from Oregon to his home state of Tennessee. Taking his time and hitting a few wheeling stops along the long trek home, Bryan was pleased to discover that his Geo performed great on a variety of terrains. So while the South may be where this Tracker calls home, it's always ready for a far-reaching off-road adventure.
