For some people racing is a fun sport to watch from the grand stands. But not me, I was born with racing in my blood and was never one to turn down a challenge. My name is Wade Wyman.

We Got a Race Truck!

We Got a Race Truck!

Since you’ve probably noticed from our social media posts, we’ve been sponsoring a Pro-Lite truck in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, driven by Wade Wyman. Our time with Wade has totally given us the race bug and we didn’t really have much lined up for our free time this summer besides fiddling with our friends’ beach wagons.

In the meantime, Jonathan Elkins was finishing his transition from successful Lucas Oil Racing Series driver to full-time pilot of the Terminator monster truck. As luck would have it, we stumbled on the advertisement for Elkins’ old race truck a couple of months ago and that truck is now ours.

Oh, Lord, Won’t You Buy Me a Mercedes-Benz… Pickup?

Oh, Lord, Won’t You Buy Me a Mercedes-Benz… Pickup?

If the late, great Janis Joplin had also needed to pick up a yard of mulch from her local garden center, her prayers would have likely been answered by the upcoming Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Recently spotted prowling the roads of far-far awayland (Germany) was a not-so-conspicuously camouflaged pre-production version of Benz’s utility wagon that’s due to hit showrooms late next year. It’s looking dangerously market-ready and was possibly out and about for purposes of real-world testing or more likely to generate a media buzz while banking on our love affair with re-tweeting things that we find vaguely interesting.

Dealing With That Darned Death Wobble

The culture surrounding off-road vehicles, as with pretty much anything motorized, is filled with grand tales of harrowing bravado. One subject that always seems to come up during story time in our shop is that of the repugnant death wobble, especially when a Jeep product is involved. But what is death wobble and how can it be remedied? Read More

Wait, What? A New Ford Bronco Is Confirmed?

Wait, What? A New Ford Bronco Is Confirmed?

Since you’re reading this, it’s safe to assume that you have access to the interwebz and therefore probably have caught wind that our questionably-quaffed president-elect has been leaning on Ford, among others, to expand US-based production capacities. Aside from a bright future for the UAW Local 900, this will also mark the triumphant return of the Ford Ranger and Ford Bronco nameplates for 2019 and 2020 respectively. So we’re told, at least; Ford has been teasing us with Bronco concepts for over a decade now and it never actually quit building Rangers, it just stopped selling them here. Read More

Video: Actual Adults Injure Themselves Racing Power Wheels

Ahh, that awkward week between Christmas and New Year’s. You’re overfed but haven’t started going back to the gym yet, you might be at your office but you’re totally mailing it in, and you’re kids are (relatively) occupied with a fresh pile of shoddily made toys, thanks to a healthy trade agreement with China. But what about all the stuff you bought them in years past? Notably, that stupid, tiny, electric Jeep for which you plunked down three Benjamins so that it can now sit in a corner of your garage, collecting dust, next to old paint buckets and a set of snow tires to a car that your spouse totaled three years ago. Well, the folks over at Busted Knuckle Films have been throwing an annual event that can put your progeny’s forgotten hunk of plastic to good use, even if the battery no longer holds a charge.
