first aired in 2001 with coverage of the beginning events in the Extreme Rock Crawling Championships. We still have lots of that classic footage that we will be putting up just to bring a tear to your eyes for the good old days.
tested many factory four wheel drive vehicles during our early days and you can see the tests we did all categorized on our website.
projected several amazing vehicles including Elsie, our beloved FJ60 that was my family cruiser and remains in the shop to this day – and until the day they plant me in the ground. We also restored and period projected a very nice FJ40 that ended up in the hands of a friend, “Bottle-a-day Dave.” Anyone ever run across Dave Yarington (a rabid cruiser enthusiast – okay ‘nut’) please have him contact me. We also projected a great old Cherokee named Scofield (named after my friend who bought it new and explored many backroads in it). That Cherokee also still remains in my family, now driven by my son-in-law and most likely soon to be my Grandson’s daily driver. Proof that good machines never die.
also went on some incredible adventures, certainly our favorite thing to do. We traveled a lot of cool trails around southern California as well as the infamous (in the ATV world!) Piute Trail area and of course Moab. What we love most are the scenic trails! You can find them all listed on our website as well.
had a few trail tips (which I hope to do more of), abad product reviews on both items for your rig as well as to make your trail experience better.
I picked up some new truck tires and so far I’m pretty impressed with them both in terms of looks and functionality. There are Federal Couragia M/T tires sized 35×12.5R17 and they replaced my old 37’s. The only complaint I have is the increase in road noise but that’s to be expected with an aggressive tread such as this. It’s really not that big a deal at all. Check them out if you’re looking for something similar.
