Do a Google for 4x4 and off road clubs.
Buy a few of the nice off road magazines published in the UK.
4x4 shops will be listed in the magazines, as they advertise.
Off road driver training centers will also be listed.
Call the magazine editors and get their suggestions. They will know the industry/market which they cover.
4x4 shops can give you the Warn, Superwinch, etc distributors.
Aftermarket companies can be a source of funds, if they can receive exposure. Another incentive for them to play would be if you invited one or more of the magazine photojournalists along on your trip.
Also, one or more people in your group may wish to make a film of the adventure which could be of value.
