Half the fun of going off-roading are the people you get to hang out with. We’ve been on some pretty epic adventures with some amazing people and seldom do we leave disappointed. Here are five Jeep crews that we wouldn’t hesitate to go wheeling with.
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. Then again, they’d probably be the coolest kids at school if mom picked them up in these off-road vans.

PHOENIX, AZ: 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.”
The Fortine Ranger District of the Kootenai National Forest has developed a proposed action for the Ten Lakes Travel Management Project. The project area is located north and east of Eureka, Montana and includes 64,177 acres. The project boundary contains the Ten Lakes Wilderness Study Area (WSA).
Proposed activities include designation of over-snow motorized use areas and non-winter trail management. There are two proposed seasons of motorized over-snow vehicle travel. Season One (December 1 – March 31) would allow travel on over 36,000 acres and approximately 12.5 miles of designated over-snow motorized vehicle routes. Season Two (April 1 – May 31) would allow travel on over 4,000 acres and approximately 32.9 miles of designated over-snow motorized vehicle routes. Non-winter trail management proposals include designating trails that allow hiking, stock, or mechanized use.
