Coke Ovens Trail

The rain started to fall heavily at 8:30 am, sending the participants of AZRocks running for the cover of tarps and their vehicles. The wet conditions changed many of the run plans, and I suggested a group run to the Coke Ovens and out through box canyon. It is a relatively easy trail, made somewhat more difficult by the water. Several other drivers were up for the route and lined up. We left camp under a downpour with seven vehicles.… read more »

There are towns in the world that shine as frontiers for overland travel: Moab, Ulaanbaatar, Maun, Arusha, Perth. There are other examples, but they all have something in common: superb 4WD vehicles outfitted for true function.

The price however, is a little less so. Luckily for you, our team has found a solution at a fraction of the cost. This 2000 TJ has been rebuilt from the ground up with the goals of performance, reliability, and daily use in mind. Inspired by… read more »

Expedition Portal Project: Range Rover Sport – The Build

If you read the first article in this series, you’ll know my goal was to create a highly capable vehicle on the trail while still maintaining a comfortable every day driver. After looking at several options I came to the satisfying, albeit questionable, decision of a Range Rover Sport. In its stock form the car was certainly capable and a bit lavish, but it needed some modifying before transforming into an overland home for two. Performance & Self Support Our… read more »
