  • The All-New 2022 Toyota Tundra Raises The Bar For Truck Enthusiasts

    The all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra full-size pickup truck is finally here, and while it has been a looooong time in the making (seriously, the last-generation Tundra came out back in 2007 and was last refreshed in 2014), it appears to have been worth the wait, with Toyota delivering an absolute powerhouse of a truck that's perfectly suited for the outdoor lifestyle crowd.

  • 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.

  • Five Reasons Why Ford's F-150 Lightning Might Be The Most Practical Truck Ever

    You guys all know that I'm gulping the EV Cool-Aid like a guy who's been wandering around in the desert for the past few years. Electric Vehicle technology has finally reached the point where it's not just practical... but is also able to provide some real world benefits to design and engineering that transcend simple sustainability as the reason you should considering buying it. This is why I'm so excited about what Ford unveiled this week for the F-150 Lightening, due out in 2022.

  • The New Ford F-150 Takes Trucks To The Next Generation

    For the past decade, truck launches and truck comparisons have been as much about stats as they are actual functionality. This transition began with the introduction of the next-generation Ram a few years ago but Ford completes the transition with the new F-150. Where previously we were talking about incrementally boasting of more towing, more hauling, more power... Ford has that, but what makes it special is everything else. I feel like we've gotten to the point where EVERYTHING tows more than most of us will ever need, so let's start focusing on a truck that delivers in other areas that can make our lives and livelihoods better.

  • Exploring Off Road Trails At Joshua Tree National Park In A Gladiator Rubicon

    One of the things I absolutely love about Joshua Tree National Park is that it is a near perfect spot for people to learn how to drive off road vehicles. You can dip your toes in the sand rolling along Geology Trail or get the adrenaline going in the Old Dale Mining District and still have a great time. This park is your place to advance skills at a pace that you are comfortable with and that matches personal experience and technical abilities of your vehicle. Over the years I've done exactly that, first having explored trails with a Jeep Cherokee and now, earlier this month I returned with the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. 

  • Exploring Organ Pipe National Monument With the 2021 Sierra Denali

    One of the joys of our National Park System (and affiliated monuments, seashores and other protected spaces) is that they offer a chance to learn and explore. Unfortunately, while some are popular destinations such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, or Glacier... others are less appreciated. That's the case of Organ Pipe National Monument but it represents some of the most gorgeous natural landscapes anywhere in the South West. We had a chance to visit for a brief stop on the way back from our road trip to Tucson last month and we think it's worth going out of your way to visit.

  • Cars And Trucks You May Never Have Heard Of But I Wish I Could Drive

    There area a huge number of cars, trucks, and SUVs available on the American market today. Despite this though, there are dozens of manufacturers and hundreds of vehicles that most of us have never heard of but would be nice to be able to drive here. While not an exhaustive list of vehicles that I'd one day like to try, hopefully this list helps open some eyes and imaginations.

  • Ford Officially Introduces The All New 2021 F-150 Raptor

    Well... it's official now and while we're thrilled to see the Raptor evolve, we're still looking for the V8 version that will hopefully be here next year in the Raptor R. That being said, the current Raptor is still the king of offroad trucks as far as we're concerned since it is as nimble as it is aggressive. I've been in several tight squeezes where the maneuverability was more important than raw horsepower, so we're excited to see how this new version performs in situations like that as soon as we can get our hands on one!

  • Ram 1500 EcoDiesel - Road Trip Review

    Trucks get a bad reputation for gas mileage, or at least they have historically. This is starting to change in the past two model years and will continue to accelerate going forward as trucks are seen as a competitive option to cars and especially full-sized SUVs such as the Chevy Tahoe. It is truly remarkable that you can take a 5,000 pound vehicle down the highway at a rate 29-mpg without using a hybrid powertrain, but that's exactly what they've done with the new 3.0 L turbo diesel. This makes it a great option for long road trips so we decided to test it out on a drive from San Diego to Paso Robles, CA to check out some Central Coast wineries.

  • Bulletproof Glass For Your Car? Here's What You Need To Know!

    Bulletproof glass has always been more of a cautionary and reactionary investment; this means that its demand is mostly related to the situation, crime rate, violence, etc. The global bulletproof glass market is expected to reach $7.65 billion by 2022 which is a 13.6% increase from 2017.

  • What Is European Truck Racing?

    Have you ever thought about taking a trip to Europe but you really do not want to waste all your time just walking around seeing the tourist spots and looking at museums and old government buildings all day?

  • Monster Truck Championship Is Some Of The Most Fun I've Had In Months

     Sometimes it is silly fun games that are the best distractions. You know, those games where you simply pick up the controller and connect with a friend and play for half an hour and then go back to work. That's the experience that I had when checking out Monster Truck Championship recently and it renewed my passion and interest in racing games... something I had lost many years ago due to them being overly complicated.

  • Ford Ranger Tremor Most Off-Road-Capable Factory-Built Ranger for US Customers

    We are all clearly waiting eagerly for the as of yet unannounced "Ranger Raptor" to arrive but those of us in the United States will just have to keep waiting. In the meantime though, Ford continues to offer factory-built off-road options that bring us closer to that ultimate eventuality. With their latest update for the 2021 Ranger they are introducing the Tremor Off-Road Package complete with off-road tuned FOX shocks, Grabber all-terrain tires, a wider stance, and connections designed to make adding off-road accessories even easier. Only yeah and plenty of decals and cosmetic updates to make sure everyone knows that you are driving a Ranger Tremor!

  • Pros and Cons of Using Aftermarket Parts

    Purchasing OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts is often recommended by car manufacturers and for a good reason. Only an OEM part can be guaranteed to be the correct part and have the dependability, strength and service life that the manufacturer can put their name behind. However, there are a lot of times when you don't need that... and even more times when an aftermarket part might be superior for your needs. Let's take a look at some pros and cons of using OEM vs aftermarket parts and when you should use one over the other.

  • Ford Unveils The All-New F-150 and A Driver-Centric Design

    The Ford F-150 is America's top light-duty truck in numbers such as towing and sales but with the launches of the new Silverado and RAM upping the game, all eyes are on Ford. Will they be able to maintain the crown? Will they be able to innovate like their competitors or just chase stats for their chance to maintain glory? The good news is that the answer is that things look very good for Ford as they introduce the 2021 Ford F-150. Let's take a look!

  • BFGoodrich Helps Keep Rubicon Trail Law Enforcement Wheeling

    As the off-roading season began on the Rubicon Trail over Memorial Day weekend, local law enforcement was able to patrol the trail with more capability thanks to a donation from BFGoodrich Tires.

  • Valvoline Launches Campaign Honoring Big Rig Truckers

    Let's face it, trucks are awesome and there's a romantic notion of driving a big rig down the road through beautiful terrain while enjoying the freedom of the open road. For some drivers that dream is real but right now these guys are even more important than ever and facing challenges that most of us never even dreamed of. That's why we're supporting Valvoline's "Thanks to Truckers" campaign and tip our hat to all the hardworking men and women out there that are hanging tough to deliver our food, PPE, and alcohol to keep us safe, happy, and healthy at home.
