USED 4×4 ATV BUYER’S GUIDE

-- Comparing the best models from the previous decade -- Not everyone has a ton a money to go out and buy a new quad. We understand that many people rely on finding good deals on used ATVs. That's why we like to provide them with info on models that are a few years older.  If you're in the market for a mid to big size 4x4 quad you'll certainly find a good price on a 2007 model.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

-- Looking back at our October issues over the years -- The first issue of Dirt Wheels was way back in 1980 when 3-wheelers ruled the ATV world. Then around 1985 we included quads too. We've always been the world's largest ATV magazine and now we've grown to become the number ATV and UTV magazine. In the past 38 years we've seen many changes, but riding off-road is still fun no matter what. MORE BLASTS FROM THE PAST below: https://dirtwheelsmag.com/?s=blackwater…
