What is it about a foolish quest that inspires us? The number one pick in the all-time list of novels (going chronologically) is Don Quixote, whose name literally came to mean exceedingly idealistic and unrealistic. Anyway, I’m not totally sure why I’ve got Don Quixote on my mind as I line up behind a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at the mouth of a snowy trail.
For most of the population, simply staying upright on a Segway could be considered an accomplishment. Brad DeBerti is known for pushing the envelope and that is evident in this off-road Segway jump video. Watch below to see if he rides it out or if he yardsales.
Anyone who’s ever visited an indoor go-kart track knows that most of the time they have very little tolerance for aggressive driving. Carl Renezeder must not have gotten the memo. Check out this video of him tearing up this track in his short-course race truck.
People train animals to do some pretty incredible things. While Roscoe might not have figured out how to work a clutch and twist a throttle yet, he certainly has his posture down pretty well and he’s great at listening to instructions. He definitely well on his way to be a world champion dirt bike riding dog.
They say relationships are all about compromise. Well, if you’re this guy and you really want to go mudding but your girlfriend doesn’t like to get dirty… you get creative. It looks like they worked it out. Check out the video below:
We’re not knocking on minivans, or soccer moms for that matter. We’re just pretty these five off-road vans aren’t what someone has in mind when they picture the wife picking up the kids from soccer practice.

If you’ve got an off-the-wall custom build in the works, you have our attention. This insane trophy truck rad rod project dubbed the “Trophy Rat” nearly broke the Internet earlier this year. It started life as a 1937 International pickup and owner/builder Keith Northrup went a little crazy from there. It features a custom dual A-arm front suspension, designed and engineered by Northrup himself, King Shocks and a 5.7L GM LS6 powerplant, in addition to a host of other custom goodies. Recently we heard Keith was hoping to find a spot for it in a booth at SEMA. Any takers? We have a sneaky suspicion that the Trophy Rat would draw a lot of attention.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the growing sport of Formula Off-Road, it basically consists of over-the-top off-road vehicles competing on over-the-top off-road courses. The courses consist unbelievably difficult hillclimbs, technical sections that test a driver’s skills and even water crossings.
Choirboy is one of the most dominating drivers in the sport today, and you can watch him and his 700+ horsepower Formula Off-Road buggy do work on this course.
After you’ve mastered driving a UTV on four wheels, the next logical step is to learn how to drive it on two, right? And just to be clear, we’re not talking about merely getting the car onto two wheels… oh no, mastering the art of two-wheel UTV driving involves being able to control and turn the vehicle all while riding on two wheels. Check it out the two-wheel UTV master below.
