  • Exploring The Desert In A 2022 Silverado ZR2

    One of the things I love about living in San Diego isn't just the pretty awesome weather all year round but rather the hot dusty playground located just on the other side of the mountains from where I live downtown. This is area, the Anza Borrego Desert, is an incredibly playground with a mixture of terrain ranging from insanely tough to perfect for novice riders. You guys know how much I love the Colorado ZR2 and so when we got the chance to take it's big brother then Silverado ZR2 for a spin... well... you know I jumped at the opportunity!

  • The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X Is Now Our Favorite All Around Truck

    GMC has been one of our absolute favorite truck brands for almost as long as we've been doing automotive features here on ManTripping.

  • XGRiD Campers Introduces Australian Off Road Overlanding Campers

    If you are looking for a badass off-road camper trailer, you can't get much better than this. While we suppose that "any camper" can be an off road camper if you go slow enough and avoid anything challenging, these bad boys are designed to literally go anywhere.  Plus they are designed to still carry all your gear - including firewood storage, bike racks, even a hot outdoor shower.

  • Bronco Sport Badlands Is My Favorite Compact Off Road SUV

    While most people are eagerly awaiting the launch of availability of the full-sized Bronco, the Bronco Sport is earning a special place in my heart. Initially I joined the chorus calling it the "baby Bronco" because it appeared to be a vehicle simply riding on it's big brother's legendary branding. After putting it through it's paces though and talking with Bronco Sport owners, I'm convinced that this may be the perfect off roader for all but the most die-hard and technically skilled adventurers.

  • Chevy Unveils 2022 SIlverado ZR2 For Men Who Want Comfort And Capability Offroad

    Two of our favorite trucks are the Chevrolet Silverado and the Colorado ZR2... well now they've come together to create a truck we can't wait to get our hands on next spring. The 2022 Silverado ZR2 takes the existing Silverado to the next level, bringing it closer... and in many ways superior to the current generation Tundra TRD Pro and F-150 Raptor.

  • GMC Introduces Canyon AT4 OVRLANDX Off-Road Concept Truck

    We loved what Chevrolet did to the Colorado ZR2 with the Bison package and it looks like GMC is headed down that same path with this one. While they seem to be positioning this OVRLANDX truck as purely a concept to stoke the imagination, we would love to see something like this available for purchase at GMC dealers. Even if it was simply a set of dealer-installed options this would be exactly what Canyon needs to fully differentiate itself.

  • Getting Back To Nature By Glamping Santa Barbara Style at El Capitan Canyon

    When most people think of visiting Santa Barbara, the image of a resort on the beach or something downtown within walking distance to the "Urban Wine Trail" comes to mind.

  • We Just Got a Sneak Preview Of The INEOS Grenadier

    Last week, the folks from INEOS Automotive brought me to a mountain top on the Appalachian Trail near Fairfax, Virginia to check out the INEOS Grenadier. Now when I first got the invite, like most of you, I had never heard of INEOS or the Grenadier before. But a quick Google search turned up some photos of a pretty rugged looking truck, so I was excited to learn more about the Grenadier and see what it was all about. Since the vehicle we were previewing was an early pre-production prototype, we didn't get a chance to drive it. Hopefully I'll get the chance to take one off-roading in the future.

  • The 2021 Bronco Sport Is Much More Than Just A Baby Bronco

    When Ford, in 2017, formally announced that they were bringing Bronco back, the off road enthusiast world lost their shit. This was one of the biggest brands in off road history and now it was coming back in exactly the right time where we have the most advanced suspension technology in history and a wide variety of engines that are designed to be robust enough to handle virtually anything we can throw at it on the trail. Then... a year later a new "Bronco" emerged and that quickly got derided as simply the "Baby Bronco", a vehicle simply riding on the big brother's coat tails. In many ways, that is accurate since I'm not sure the Bronco Sport would survive on it's own if it were called something else - for instance if it were simply called the Escape Sport.

  • Covering Your Camper Or RV Is Just As Important As Weatherizing It

    A camper is a major investment, but it can save you the money you would otherwise spend on lodging and meals as well. Yet, even so, many people cannot afford the price of indoor storage and others think the job is done once they complete some weatherizing before storing it for winter. That's why it is essential to make sure you invest in a cover as well.
