– Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  and Transport Canada, is issuing a voluntary recall on model year 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicles due to reports of pinched fuel tank vent lines.  The recall is related to the vehicle’s fuel tank vent line potentially being incorrectly installed during manufacturing, causing it to become pinched, which may cause the fuel tank to pressurize and leak fuel, posing a potential fire hazard.  Polaris estimates that the assembly error occurred in very few vehicles; however, Polaris is issuing a voluntary recall so that all these vehicles could be inspected and any affected vent lines fixed prior to further use.


Wily spy photographers have struck again, this time capturing a 2018 Ford Expedition being tested.

It appears that the test model is equipped with a Ford F-150 front end and cab. We suspect it will have some unique styling by the time it is ready for dealer showrooms. The F-150 front end was likely chosen because the body panels on the new Expedition will be made of aluminum, which will help it lose some weight.

Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. (September, 2015)
– The Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been the vehicle of choice for those of us who wanted to go off-road occasionally but didn’t want to sacrifice creature comforts with something like a Wrangler. The Grand Cherokee is a solidly built, reliable, capable machine that is available with a variety of engines. These rigs also represent a tremendous value on the used market and as such they are super common and make a great starting point for a variety of off-road builds. One area in which they could use some serious improvement however, is their exhaust system. The stock exhaust system is extremely quiet and restrictive, definitely not something an enthusiast would want. Luckily, MagnaFlow is here to help with their new cat-back system for 2011-2016 Grand Cherokees with the 5.7 liter V8 and 2014-2016 Grand Cherokees with the 3.6 liter V6.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Black Bear Edition.
Although it may be another year or two before we see the new Wrangler, depending upon whom you ask, Jeep will be offering some updates to its 2016 lineup, with one standout being its new Black Bear Special Edition Wrangler. Taking its name from the trail in Telluride, Colorado, this Wrangler is build based on a Sport model but adds unique exterior and interior features.

The return of the Arizona Offroad and Sand Expo this weekend September 25th to 27th has drawn a large amount of attention from the entire industry and local enthusiasts.  This show is shaping up to be one of the wildest trade show and off-road events located in the heart of Arizona at Westworld of Scottsdale.

“We have been blown away with the positive response from every company that we have talked to regarding coming and displaying at the show.  Originally we had a goal of 80 vendors, but the show has sold out twice now, upping the footprint to be able to satisfy almost 200 exhibitors,” said Andy Myers, show promoter.  “We shut the show down in 2009 when the economy could no longer host such an event.  About a year ago we realized that the market was sparking some serious interest, especially here in Arizona.  I am really proud to be able to bring this show back so everyone can once again get together with success and off-roading in mind.”
