The  WOLF RIGS  Team

Founder CEO 

Reed Gerdes

Reed started Wolf Rigs as a cumulation of his life’s work and his love for adventure. He has spent his life exploring the most challenging 4wheel drive trails, and building vehicles to get him there. When contemplating how he could combine these two passions, Reed birthed the idea for Wolf Rigs.

When designing the Patton, Reed wanted to build something that had never been created before. An overland adventure vehicle that pushed the limits of capability and comfort.“The entire reason the Patton exists is that no one was building it. It's exactly the right size. It offers the most capability, amenities, and durability on the market...and it looks badass too”.

Reed's hope for those who purchase a Patton, is that they will find adventure and life long friendships with others in the Overlanding community. He has designed the Patton to be capable of taking you anywhere on the planet, on land that is.
“Life is short. I want everyone to have the opportunities I have had to have fun. I work hard and play hard. I love hanging out with friends and doing crazy stuff. I will forever be 25 in my mind.”

“We made it. Now it’s time to live fully, and help empower the rest of the Overlanding community to do the same.” Starting Wolf Rigs took a leap of faith. Reed, who is no stranger to challenges, has tactically navigated the terrain to successfully launch this concept.

“I operate with the belief that decisive movement keeps us on a successful path.”
Movement is certainly the theme of Wolf Rigs. The mission to create a vehicle that can go anywhere on land is the ultimate way to ensure that those who own a Patton will never stop
