Dee Zee: Chad Hoover’s Overland Rig

Dee Zee Does It

Chad Hoover from Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) explains why Dee Zee is his go-to brand for truck accessories. Although he prefers to be in his kayak, Chad puts a lot of miles on his truck jumping between watering holes and Dee Zee’s products make it possible to haul all his gear.

Here’s a quick Christmas list of some of the products that went into Chad’s sexy beast of an overlander.
