“This guy” is Herrmann, and he’d really be more accurately described as a legend. We found him hitchhiking up AZ-209 and gave him a lift back to his camp; a Geo Metro loaded with living gear and a little kitchen that’d he’s been wandering around America in for a very long time. »
Mercedes-Benz is providing some special G-Wagens, Sprinters, and GLE “Coupes” to run around with dinosaurs in the new Jurassic World movie... but this Unimog “Mobile Veterinary Unit” is obviously the coolest part of the lineup. »
This weekend, we took the off-road version of the new Ford F-150 pickup through the highest elevation trail in California. It’d be a test for its new turbocharged engine and its ability on dirt, rocks and sand. Could America’s best selling vehicle hack it?
Land Rover had a course set up at an off-road convention near Flagstaff, Arizona this weekend to show off their wares, which they bailed on using Saturday because it rained and got really muddy. At least their rigs looked nice sitting in the grass. »
The 2015 Overland Expo went down this weekend at Mormon Lake, Arizona just outside Flagstaff. It’s an annual convention of next-level camping nuts who spend the value of a house turning trucks into… well, houses. Just look at these marvelous monsters. »
Toyota’s factory racing outfit is backing off-road pro Ryan Millen to take on Rally America’s open modified street car class in this basically stock 2015 Toyota RAV4 LE 2WD. I’m finding myself... genuinely curious about how well it does. »

The motorstorm of retro off-road awesomeness that is the NORRA Mexican 1000 takes over Baja next week. Among this year’s competitors is this badass Bronco; it won the race almost forty years ago, ended up a derelict in a desert junkyard, and is returning with a legendary driver and a fresh restoration. »
Jeep sure took their sweet time to realize they should sell OEM lift kits, but as of now you can finally buy 2" and 4" lifts at the same place you bought your new Wrangler, along with a pretty solid list of other off-road upgrades. »
In less than the time required to catch up on a few Game of Thrones episodes, I went from my house to the location in the photo above. Sadly, this is the first time I've ever been there. Here are my thoughts on why it's worth getting off the couch and onto the road (or trail). »

The 2011 to 2014 Ford Raptor is highly off-road capable with 411 horsepower. The Shelby Baja 700 adds a 2.9 liter supercharger, big ol' exhaust, jump-worthy suspension, and takes the output up to (you guessed it) 700 horsepower. »
