As you may remember from last year, we were incredibly excited to build an Overland inspired Ridgeline for the Honda booth at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. That build started an exciting new chapter at Jsport with new product offerings and a newfound love for the lifestyle that comes with Overland culture. Since that time, we have had the opportunity to build a few Overland style Passports for Honda that have been utilized by media outlets and displayed at various shows.  Now that the 2019 SEMA Show is here, we went bolder than ever before in our partnership. With the release of the newly updated CR-V our next SEMA project was born, or should we say “projects”. 

JSPORT 2020 CR-V Hybrid Build

The first build we did was on the 1.5L gas-powered model. We equipped this CR-V with the tools it needed to squeeze every bit of capability out of the platform possible, and get you to the best Overlanding destinations in the country. Highlighted with a topographical map wrap featuring national parks, this build is the ultimate expression of the CR-V platform.

Build includes:

·         Jsport CR-V 1.5” Lift Kit

·         Jsport CR-V Plateau Roof Rack

·         Jsport CR-V Side Steps

·         Jsport Safari Front Bumper with integrated Skid Plate and Lights

·         Jsport CR-V Overland Wheels

·         Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires

·         Rear Swinging Tire Carrier

·         Trunk organization system with fridge and freezer

·         Custom topographical map vehicle wrap

JSPORT 2020 CR-V Touring Build

The second build we did was on the new 2020 Hybrid powered CR-V.  We wanted to create something that the average weekend adventurer would love to drive and could achieve on a fairly conservative budget. We designed this build to be a little bit tamer, but still confidently get you over some rough terrain and bring all of your gear along with you.

Build includes:

·         Jsport CR-V 1.5” Lift Kit

·         Jsport CR-V Side Steps

·         Jsport Roof Basket

·         Jsport CR-V Adventure Wheels

·         Nitto Terra Grappler Tires

·         Satin paint protection film

·         Cannondale Mountain Bike

Overland Expo East We have been extra busy at Jsport for the last few weeks and we aren’t slowing down. After having such a great experience at Overland Expo West back in May 2019 we knew we had to participate in Overland Expo East as well. We joined forces with the Honda team once again and [...]
