UTV PROJECT: CAN-AM DEFENDER PRO ADVENTURE BUILD

One wicked “Stepchild” By Lane Lindstrom Zbroz Racing has built a number of project vehicles over the years. We’ve lost count and so have they, but their latest is definitely one of the most unique. “Stepchild,” Zbroz Racing’s latest build, will turn heads pretty much anywhere it goes—snow, sand, desert, mountains or wherever. Stepchild certainly caught our eye and piqued our interest. So, we dug a little deeper, and here’s what we discovered. Let’s start with the name. Not everyone names their project vehicle, but…

UTAH OFF-ROAD RENTALS & GUIDED TOURS

By the staff of Dirt Wheels UTAH OFF-ROAD RENTALS & GUIDED TOURS Utah has everything from stark salt flats to lush forests and mountain meadows, but when off-roaders think of the state, most mentally see red rock vistas.

SHERP THE ARK The new SHERP is bigger than ever before. The Ark was made to transport up 21 passengers through any conditions or terrain and can also be configured as a dwelling module instead. However, if you aren't in the market for an over landing type rig, then take a look at the Ark's medical module, universal loading platform, and tank unit. SHERP the Ark consists of two linked units that work as a single-vehicle. The Ark body is made of aluminum, which reduces the total weight and lowers the center of…

CT POLARIS RZR 4 DYNAMIX

By the staff of Dirt Wheels CT POLARIS RZR 4 DYNAMIX Allen Knowles is the owner of CT Racing, and he has managed something extraordinary. No, we aren’t talking about this cool four-seat desert monster he built. He’s managed to find a wife who still likes to get out and hit trails in a rowdy UTV. Roxanne can navigate, feed the crew, or drive the dually and the trailer. Even more, she can stand to be a passenger when “Crazy Al” is driving. We’ll admit, we will only ride with him when the alternative is walking—with…
