It sure seems like there are handfuls of tire manufacturers making UTV tires these days, but it is really confidence-inspiring when a huge tire manufacturer like Toyo gets into the smaller Powersports market. Sure, you could have adapted an automotive-based Toyo tire to use on your UTV in the past, but now they have a purpose-built tire that is made to take on harsh terrains that UTVs can tackle.

Some news came out a month or more ago about ROXOR Offroad releasing an automatic transmission version of the ROXOR called a ROXOR A/T. We have been pretty quiet about ROXOR since it was released, but that doesn't mean we are not interested in the vehicle, because we are very interested in the vehicle. The fact is the ROXOR fits into the "UTV/SxS" category, but it is a different animal all together. It uses a
Everyone needs a good cooler to keep the cold on your food and drinks. With today’s latest insulation technology in coolers, you can literally keep your drinks cold all day long. Pelican has figured out the insulation trick with their latest coolers, and let me tell you, they are a thing of beauty!
The heated battle for truck supremacy continues to rage in the ½ ton pickup segment. This time, it’s Ram that, once again, ups the ante with the unveiling of their long awaited update to the EcoDiesel engine. And, you guessed it, there is more power on tap than ever before!
Dustin and Manny are back showing us about "Gettin It Done", but this time it is changing the oil and filter on a Can-Am Defender. Don't worry though, these tips will help anyone. We are fans of both Dustin Jones and the Visions of Victory videos produced by S3 Powersports, and now those guys are producing "How To" videos called Gettin It" Done.
ATV safety is one of those things many people don't think about until something bad happens. This is particularly true when it comes time for kids and ATVs. Let's think about being proactive on this issue and keep ATV and UTV riders safe! Take a course and have those in your charge take a course!
It seems everyone that makes vehicles is looking towards the off-road industry, and particularly towards electric off-road vehicles. It turns out Volkswagen is no exception as it has introduced the ID. Buggy concept off-road vehicle. It is cool looking, though we are not sure how much of a true "off-road" vehicle it really is. The ID. Buggy is considered a dune buggy of sorts,
We are fans of both Dustin Jones and the Visions of Victory videos produced by S3 Powersports, and now those guys are producing "How To" videos called Gettin It" Done. We watched this episode where Dustin walks you through changing a front axle on a Can-Am Maverick X3, but it applies
Cool People Wear Helmets. Get it? Got it. Good!
What is going on with all of the major truck manufacturers this year?! Are they trying to make it even more difficult for us to decide which HD truck to buy for all of our towing and hauling needs? If that's their goal, they are doing a great job because each of the Big 3 manufacturers have new or significantly revised HD trucks for the 2020 model year. Chevy's new HD could be regarded as the boldest update yet – what do you think?!
The 2020 GMC HD trucks are officially been unveiled, and we are excited to bring you the latest information on these trucks and when you can find them at your local GMC dealership!
Right on the heels of GM and Ram HD truck unveilings, Ford is the latest to update their lineup of HD trucks. With all of the cosmetic and powertrain upgrades, can the Ford hold the top sales spot and continue it's success in the HD truck market? Needless to say Josh is very very excited about the updates as the Ford guy around here!
2019 RAM Heavy Duty trucks were recently announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. In addition to a styling refresh for the new model lineup, especially with the interior getting a major overhaul, the Cummins turbo diesel gets heavy revisions and a power upgrade to 1000 ft-lb of torque. Yes, you read that right!
At this year's AIMExpo in Las Vegas, Mahindra took the opportunity to unveil more accessories for the popular ROXOR lineup. Our staff was there to check out the latest accessories.
That didn't take long did it! After only a few weeks after acquiring Arctic Cat, Textron Off Road has kicked the Arctic Cat brand off all future off road vehicles, and will only be using it on the snow side of its business. There has been a bunch of speculative talk as to what Textron plans to do with Arctic Cat, and now all off road vehicles from Arctic Cat will be Textron Off Road. There is the Textron Off Road Wildcat, Altera, Prowler,
Look at what we picked up in the last couple of days. It has eight...yes...eight wheels, is amphibious, can hold six people, and is for extreme terrain. Yep...it is 2017 ARGO XTV, and yes... it is for us to test the next couple of months. For years we have heard about ARGOs, including how they have a go-anywhere attitude including your nearest body of water. We can say that our first test ride was an eye-opening
It seems like many companies from Can-Am to Polaris are partnering with racing teams to promote their machines. Textron Off Road can now be added to the list as it is now Joe Gibbs Racing MX (JGRMX) team’s official utility vehicle brand. JGRMX will use a fleet of Textron Off Road Stampede 4x4s to assist in rider transportation, track maintenance, and whatever else is needed while traveling throughout North America. The Stampede has plenty of power to tackle any job that JGR throws its way, so much storage space, there is plenty of room to store all of their tools and equipment.
Up to now we have not spent any time covering ARGO, but there hasn't been a particular reason for that. Though ARGO doesn't make a traditional "ATV or side-by-side", they do make a XTV aka Xtreme Terrain Vehicle with six or eight wheels, which is pretty darn cool! ARGO's are called XTV's for a reason: they work on land AND water. People don't just use these eight-wheeled beasts to tackle tough terrain,
High Lifter Products Inc., the leader in custom aftermarket ATV/UTV accessories, celebrates its 20th year in business on Saturday, October 22, at its Off Road Park in Shreveport, Louisiana. High Lifter started it all by creating the first lift kit for an ATV to tackle the Louisiana terrain. Twenty Years later, the company is still going strong and is now considered a legend in the mud riding industry.
ATV and side-by-sides are not the only ones that can have incredible builds done to them. Rugged Radios recently introduced a build sporting the name “Rugged Relay” that is designed to provide the best communication relay services to teams competing in the Best In The Desert off road racing series.

The newly published U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) 2014 Annual Report of ATV Deaths and Injuries confirmed once again that fatalities and injuries related to all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) continue to decline. The Annual Report has shown a decrease in fatalities and injuries every year since 2007.
Polaris today asked all off-road enthusiasts to help drive The RIDE (ROV In-Depth Examination) Act into law by visiting www.stoptherovmandate.com to send messages to their Representative and Senators.
After congress received more than 90,000 messages from off-road enthusiasts concerning the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) proposed mandates for off-road, side-by-side vehicles (ROVs), U.S. Representatives Mike Pompeo (R-KS) and Collin Peterson (D-MN) introduced The RIDE Act in the House of Representatives. The bill, H.R. 999, would postpone the ROV rulemaking until the CPSC’s proposals are studied and evaluated by independent organizations.
There is a game afoot, that all of us off-road enthusiasts must take action against. Simply put, the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission is trying to mandate that all side-by-side OFF-ROAD vehicles meet the same design standards as ON ROAD Vehicles. Any one with common sense can identify that this is not a good idea. We are all-for safety standards, but the last thing we need is off-road vehicles handling like on-road vehicles. In fact, that is just counter-intuitive, when the words come out of one's mouth! Doing this will result in our side-by-sides and UTVs being more dangerous off-road than before. WE MUST TAKE ACTION ON THIS ASAP!!!!!
Our friends over at High Lifter helped raise more than $14,000 for the Shiners Hospital for children.
