2020 Dirt Wheels Christmas Gift Guide
The Christmas season is fast approaching. Those of us afflicted with an off-road passion, have some very specific ideas for gift-giving this holiday season. Here are 13 great gift ideas, via our 2020 Dirt Wheels Christmas Gift Guide.
First, we scoured the industry offerings and came up with 13 items. These would make excellent gifts, for virtually any off-road fan that you care about.
HOOK-N-GO YOUTH ATV TOW BAR HITCH: $120
Perfect for off-road families. The Hook-N-Go tow bar allows you to tow a small quad behind your UTV or 4×4 ATV. If you have kids, you know the length of time and distance they can ride before getting tired.
If you are going on a longer ride, this is the perfect fix so they aren’t left out or left behind. Transfer your tired rider into a UTV or onto a two-up quad. Use the Hook-N-Go to tow the rider-less machine. The Hook-N-Go is also great if you run into mechanical issues on the trail. A quick setup makes it convenient to use at any time.
ATSKI CONVERSION KIT: $120
Why park your sport quad when the snow starts to fall? Get out and ride with the ATSKi conversion kit! The ideal-use conditions for this kit, are 2 to 4 inches of snow. Occasional deep snow areas can be crossable with momentum. Hard-packed snow trails and ice-covered snow are perfect for the ATSKi. A set of snow or studded rear tires will help improve performance. Deep snow requires the use of rear tracks though. www.diamondjcustoms.com
BUS BARS: $18.95–$19.95
Hopefully, your dirt addict got lots of cool electrical gifts. But electrical power sports accessories can take a heavy toll on your battery. The Moose bus bars allow you to have multiple electrical connections, without overloading your battery terminals.

They are safe, with a continuous load of 130-amp A.C., 150-amp D.C., and a maximum voltage rating of 300-volt A.C., 48-volt D.C.
