  • 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.

  • BOSSing the Snow Around With Chevy Trucks

    We came, we learned, we plowed. That was pretty much the order of events when Chevrolet teamed up with Boss Snowplow and hosted us for a truck-n-plow event on the very frozen tundra of Marquette, MI at Marquette County’s (MI) Sawyer International Airport. Chevrolet brought a small fleet of 2020 Silverado HD 6.6-liter Duramax diesels in LTZ trim and several of their new Alaskan trimmed models.

  • Hummer Returns: Might Just Be The Ultimate Off Road Machine

    When I think of a zero-emissions electric vehicle, HUMMER is not at the top of that list. However, I have to admit that the idea of a big beefy GMC truck with 1,000 hp, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 time of just 3 seconds sounds F'ing awesome. So... I guess we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. Interested in learning more? Check out the commercial teaser debuting during the Super Bowl later today!

  • The Ford Raptor Is Way More Than Just a Super Truck

    All too often vehicles get distilled down to just one aspect of their personalities. A Bugatti Veyron is fast, a Maybach is luxurious, and a Raptor is just badass. While those are true - at least in the case of the 2019 Ford Raptor, it doesn't tell a complete story of why this is possibly the best truck on the market today. While previous generations of the truck were 100% focused on off-road ability, the current iteration is equally adept on the pavement, including twisty mountain roads as it is flying over the desert at high speeds.

  • A Summer Afternoon of Chevy Trucks and Baseball

    Summer is almost over but that doesn't mean we can't savor every last moment. Despite what some may say - right now is a great time to be alive and I'm always ready to celebrate some of my favorite things. When Chevrolet invited me for an afternoon that included a tour of a baseball bat factory, batting practice, and an opportunity to drive a Silverado truck through Orange County, CA traffic... I said heck yeah! 

  • Exploring The San Bernadino Mountains In a Bison

    Chevrolet continues to crank out iterations of my favorite truck, the Colorado ZR2 and this time they've taken it to the next level. The Colorado ZR2 Bison is everything that the normal ZR2 is - but more rugged. For those of you who might not have thought it was tough enough, don't worry - it's now got steel bumpers, boron-steel skid plates, winch provisions on the front bumper and integrated fog lights. This was a partnership with AEV (American Expedition Vehicles) and while the normal ZR2 is a jack of all trades this is clearly for the overlander market. And those who just simply want a badass looking truck right off the dealer lot with a manufacturers warranty!

    There are a lot of trails in Southern California, but here's three of my favorites because they are scenic and have a variety of terrain but aren't too technically arduous. While the Colorado ZR2 is a phenomenal vehicle that can conquer pretty much anything that you throw at it, sometimes it's nice to know that and never test the limits. This is especially true for novice off-roaders since those limits are often YOURS, not the vehicle itself. These trails a great for exploring and having fun while getting away from civilization for a few hours.
