There's lots of places where these are... Sorta ignored as not legal. Mostly places that have seasonal income from the occupants of the adventure machines.

I spend much of the summer in such places.
It's awesome to be a part time outlaw!

Fab Fours is based literally a mile from my house. They can do some great work, but man most of their new stuff lately is atrocious. I see a few of their showcase jeeps running around now and then.

Spends thousands of dollars on tough off-road bumpers/grumpers(cringe). Eliminates half, if not more, of the trucks departure angle with those garbage can exhaust tips. The textbook definition of a mall crawler. #BigQueef

Funny this truck is actually up in my neck of the woods seen it a few times round London, ON. It's even more retarded looking in person.

The weird grilles and such they have been doing lately are awful. I used to like some of their bumpers, headache racks and such. I ways wondered if I could purchase directly from them and save some money, but I haven't seen anything from them in a while I would like to run.

Baaaaaaaaaaa

All Legal here in Idaho on any street that is 45MPH or less.
Every time I go to the grocery store there is a guy with a can am X3 running bigger tires than my f150. He was parked next to a Late model dodge Dakota the other day and it was just as big. At this point we might as well start looking at long travel Tacoma’s.

Along the same vein. Coyote Shuttles in Moab stretches out their VW busses and uses them to drop riders on the upper trails. Used them to shuttle to the top of the full enchilada a couple of years ago. You'd be surprised how steep a hill a fully loaded, stretched VW bus can climb.

Not too steep, too long. Full enchilada with the shuttle is still a 27 mile ride with 2293 feet of climbing, with half of that on burro pass which peaks at 11170 feet. The descent of 8839 feet to the colorado river makes it worth it though. Trust me, it's not one you'd ride up to:

edit: damn, just looking at those sites makes me want to ditch all responsibilities, throw the bike into the truck and drive for 24 hours to ride it.

Ya I figured my comment was ignorant, but I couldn't resist. Looks like an amazing ride. We're about to drive right by it again on our way to CO next week, always talk about going but haven't yet.

I just discovered Trailforks a month or so back. I don’t know what rock I was living under but it has been a great app.
