ARB Releases Two Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Every driver, no matter what they drive, knows proper tire pressure is essential. It ensures maximum efficiency, performance, and prolongs tire life. More importantly, it’s paramount for the safe operation of any vehicle. For the driver venturing into the sticks, airing down is a must, but at those lower reaches of PSI, there isn’t much margin for error.

National Park Vandals Strike Again

People are terrible. Not all of them obviously, but for the people who recently vandalized the iconic Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park, the word terrible doesn’t do them justice.

Trail Tested: Kuat NV 2.0 with Rak Attach Swing-Out Mount

At the exact time I was wrapping up the testing phase, Küat released their updated version of their venerable NV rack called, not surprisingly, the NV 2.0. I finally got my paws on that new product and although I’ve only had a month to evaluate it, I have to admit I’m quite impressed. I first started using the original NV rack… read more »

Reminiscing at the Relic Run

Have you ever wanted to go away for a weekend and reminisce about the good old days of metal bodies, big block motors and leg warmers? If that is the case than the ExpeditionUtah Relic Run is the perfect event for you! The idea behind this historic run is to recreate the feeling of travelling back prior to 1989. While the age of the vehicle is the only real requirement it is not uncommon to see tents, eskys (coolers), clothing… read more »
