Off-Road Videos Are My Kryptonite

This may surprise you, but I wasn’t always the slick-hair, leather-jacket wearing cool guy you see today. No, believe it or not, I didn’t go out much in college. Instead, on Friday and Saturday nights, I sat in my dorm and watched off-road videos for hours. I couldn’t help it.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The City of Ensenada is a vibrant port town a couple hours south of the U.S. border that derives a lot of commerce from two things: visiting cruise ship guests and off-road racers.

Even SEMA Knows Off-Road 911s Are One Of The Coolest Things On Earth

SEMA cars don’t usually do it for me as they tend to be more show than go, but Kelly-Moss Road and Race built a ridiculous 911 that’s meant to go everywhere. Words cannot express how much I want to hoon a 911 through the dirt, and the car that won SEMA’s “Best Off-Road Vehicle” is […]

I’m Taking New Land Rovers On A Massive Peruvian Jungle Adventure

I won’t say I’m taking a wing of new Land Rover Discoverys and Range Rover Sports to their natural habitat because, that would be a valet line on Rodeo Drive.

This $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Hasn’t Run In 12 Years And It’s My New Off-Road Project

Two years ago, I used junkyard parts to turn a $600 Jeep Cherokee into an off-road beast. Then I rebuilt a dilapidated 1948 Willys CJ-2A farm Jeep, took it on a 1,300 mile road trip, and wheeled the crap out of it at Moab. Now it’s time to introduce this year’s project: an $800 Jeep […]

What It Takes To Launch One Of The Toughest Off-Road Races In America

Women’s participation in motorsports is growing for sure, but it definitely doesn’t represent the ratio between men and women in the general population—yet. This has not escaped the notice of professional off-roader and bona fide badass Emily Miller, whose women-only Rebelle Rally has become one of the most grueling…Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2018 Land Rover Discovery SVX Is Making Basic Ass SUVs Mean Again

Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations has turned out some pretty slick shit in its relatively short life so far; the Range Rover Sport SVR and Jaguar F-Type SVR are both filthy tarmac-torturers. But given Land Rover’s adventure pedigree we’ve been waiting for an off-road equivalent, and it looks like the…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

Watch A Man Recover His Subaru Forester After It Floats Down A River

Here’s a Subaru Forester that looks like it lost one ox, 420 pounds of food and three sets of clothing fording the swollen Moore River in Western Australia. The river was nearly 4 feet deep and carried the early Forester away, but this off-roader managed to save it anyway. Definitely don’t try this at home. […]

This Man Is The Four-Wheel Drive King Of The World And His Collection Will Blow Your Mind

In the crowded metropolis of Hong Kong lives a man who knows more about off-road vehicles than possibly anyone else on earth. He has raced the Dakar Rally, torn apart priceless vehicles just to see how they work, written a book called The 4×4 Bible, and taught off-roading skills to locals. His name is Victor […]
