Over the past 7 years we’ve had the privilege of wheeling with and becoming good friends with John Herrick and CRAWL Magazine.  Last year they brought up the Long John Silver LJ and it’s a beautiful rig in it’s own right, but the trails in northern Minnesota had him wishing he was in a buggy.  He came back this year and brought a big gun this time.  A full blown turn key buggy built at Trent Fab in Reno, NV. …

Rock Rash | 2016

I’ve been at a loss for words since last weekends Rock Rash.  If you ever want to run your mouth about your rig or your skills you best be signing up for 2017’s event.  There ended up being 34 rigs this year and to say the trails were intense would be an understatement.   There was zero chance you were making it through the trails without breakage or body damage.   Every year this event gets a little better and …

Remember when you were a kid and you got your first magazine and wore out the pages?  I do, it was Thrasher (skateboarding) April of 91′.  I wore that rag out memorizing every detail on every page.  Fast forward a few years and another magazine hit me as an adult like that old Thrasher once did.  The April/May issue of CRAWL with the Six Shoota buggy on the cover.  This one blew the 4wheeler/ JP/ Peterson’s completely out of the …

This weekend was the 12th annual Rock Rash fall event.  Like all good annual wheeling trips, this one started back in 2003 with a couple buddies has morphed into 36+ VERY capable rigs with countless spectators and supporters.  The day was setup golf style.  9 teams of 4, wheeling on 9 of the most technical, hard core trails the upper Midwest has ever seen.  Off road clubs adopted each trails and marked them out with zero shortage of insane lines and obstacles. …

Stocker Mocker Challange | 2015

A few of us have been tossing the idea around bolting up the dirty 30ish sized roller and wheeling them for years.  This year we committed to the run and had an awesome showing!  There were at least 15 rigs on little tires even after it had just rained and that’s where the gong show started.  People were looping out on core roads getting to the easy trails we wouldn’t bother with on big tires and the laughter was everywhere; …

A handful of MN-4×4 staff headed to Black Mountain in Harlan KY the first week of May for a week of wheeling and carrying on with our Southern friends.  A while back Brad Baxter’s Super Willy’s was noticed by just the right people in the industry and we were contacted to do a photo shoot for a feature article of CRAWL magazine.  Ummm…YEAH!!!  We loaded up the dually and gooseneck and pointed it south for the 18hr drive.  Worth.  Every. …

Snow Show

Right out of gate we knew this first Snow Show was going to be one for the books one way or another. The weather was perfect for wheeling and about 15 well prepared rigs took full advantage.  Everyone loaded up and made our way through the MMT and the MN-4×4 staff cooked a hot lunch for anyone that wanted one on the bluff.  It was a site that warms the hearts of hardcore wheelers.  A bonfire, hot grill full of …
